    Would you mind sharing your settings? I have even used the AWCC to adjust the speaker settings and I still find them sounding muffled, crackling and low bass. Even with bass dial turned up.

    HDMI will not do 240 HZ, switch cables and try again. 144hz is max, if you have the right cable and HDMI 2.0 on both source and Monitor. Try DP cable

    Hi everyone, trying to figure out the lowest cost way to owning a 51m on my budget. I noticed that people mentioned Dells starting price was $1,950 earlier on, but now it's risen by $200 to $2,150. Does anyone know of a Dell coupon I can apply at checkout or a cheaper retailer? I've seen Xoticpc's cheaper 2070 and 2080 builds but since I'm on a budget was looking at 2060 + 9700k.

    I did 240hz at 1080p fine with hdmi , the only thing that won’t work is gsync, for that you need dp

    Many HDMI are unable to run at anything above 60HZ

    Use the display port. Much better for monitors and should support 240HZ no problem.

    Being new to all this overclocking malarky I'm wondering which thermal paste to repaste my CPU and GPU with. I like the look of Thermal Grizzly conductonaut 73W/M, except it says in tiny print "May be corrosive to metals" !!!

    Is it good/bad to use?

    I might be wrong but i think HDMI is not able to run 240hz. As far as i know only HDMI 2.0 supports 1080p with 240hz.
    . Have you tried DP?

    Edit: RTX cards have HDMI 2.0b so it should work
    Edit2: The Display only supports HDMI 1.4

    if you’re using the HDMI cable provided with the monitor it should do 240hz no sweat. I have no issues using mine at that hz.
