I'm currently building an AMD ryzen 2700 and using Crosshair Hero Vi.

In the market for monitors and other accessories currently.

Loans may not be so simple to handle due to high liabilities. Unless you have like a room for people to tinker around and put back the items after usage. You also will need to screen users of such programs, if not any damage or loss hard to peg to anyone.

Perhaps vlogging is required during installation / usage of items?

I am also assuming these will not be commercial samples?
OT a bit, I have a love hate relationship with the C6H and my 1800x cos well early adopter and the board hates my rams.

Suggest you get the C7H instead unless you get Samsung B dies and mod the bios.

Ok end of OT before tio from Asus Jiejie again

Thanks for tips will keep in mind. Already planning to flash the bios to install 2700. Everything still inside box, just getting room ready for installation, I got my C6H at a good deal price and its been awhile since I plan to make my own rig.

Latest bios is good cos it brought back Precision Boost Overdrive for the 2000 series Ryzen. Just remember to get Samsung B ram and use the DRAM calculator:
https://www.overclock.net/forum/13-amd-general/1640919-new-dram-calculator-ryzena-1-4-1-overclocking-dram-am4.html

Seems like it works well with Samsung chips but hates hynix ones aka mine

PG258Q 240Hz

Forum Nick: x0fff8
Sample requested: PG258Q
Duration of loan: 2weeks (Not sure if its possible since the post stated its 1 week by default)

Hey ASUS, just chanced on this program and thought to give it a try. Wondering if its possible to try out the PG258Q monitor? Been seeing a ton of FPS pros on this monitor. I've been wanting to try a 240Hz monitor to see if it's worth the upgrade over a 144hz for the longest time!

Looking forward to hear from you guys!

I bought PG279Q in one of the last IT shows and then PS4 Pro later. Been wanting to try PS4 Pro on a 4k monitor before deciding to do the selling/buying one. This is a good program for this purpose. Which one would you recommend to try first?

Hi xiaodouya,

Is the monitor solely for console? PG348Q is not 4K though, 1440p like your current PG279Q. Upcoming, we will have a 4K monitor targeted at console gamers - CG32UQ

Yes, i need a monitor to cater for my PS4 Pro 4K at the moment, while I wait to build my 4k PC.
It may not make economical sense to buy a monitor that is catered for consoles but I don't know about this..
Do you mean to say that both PG27UQ or PG348Q do not have a 4K resolution output as I see those specifications online?

Hi xiaodouya,

Specs as follow:

ROG Swift PG27UQ - 3840x2160, 4K, G-SYNC HDR, DisplayHDR 1000
ROG Swift PG348Q - 3440x1440, UWQHD, G-SYNC

IMO, not practical to get monitors with 21:9 resolution if you intend to use it with a console.

Can! But the PG27UQ is currently loaned out to another media for event use. I'll drop you a PM once the monitor is back, likely in the 2nd week of May.

yes, in that sense, it will be wise to use this opportunity to loan the PG27UQ then?
Hi Tan Gee Ming,

The AC88U has 8 LAN ports as compared to 4 LAN ports on AC86U. Other than the slight different in WLAN speed. Instead of replacing, you can consider getting an AC86U or AC88U to form an AiMesh network for wider coverage.

AC86U is cheaper than AC88U, but the processor in AC86U is at 1.8ghz whereas AC88U is at 1.4ghz. does that mean that AC86U is better?
