    Actually, I need the sliding adjustment for scaling returned to the drivers. If I select 60 Hz @ 4K, my screen gets zoomed so that it's just beyond the frame. At 30 Hz, it's just fine.

    As it stands, the drivers I have only have preset options for scaling...which doesn't do me any good.

    If the sliding scale adjustment is somewhere in these drivers, I need to know just where. It doesn't show up in the Additional Settings either.

    60hz an 30hz shouldn't make a bit of a difference on overscan.... that's so buggered up

    While it shouldn't, the fact is it does. So, I need that sliding scale adjustment option back in the drivers. Why was it ever removed???

    My 4K screen is my HDTV connected via DP adapter and set as my Main Screen.
    My other three screens are identical ViewSonic 24 inch LCDs all connected via DVI-D.

    All show only the Color Temperature option.

    It appears I may have found a workaround for the HDTV:

    Turn OFF GPU Scaling, Set Scaling Mode to Full Panel, and then I can select 60Hz and keep things within the borders. We'll see if it sticks.

    It's so nice with samsung 4k tvs.... you just plug them in.. and they work RIGHT out of the box like any other monitor... honestly/seriously..

    The RX 460/470/480 just does it. The older cards unfortunately would default to 30hz... due to hdmi 1.4a... however dropping the resolution to 1080p would produce 60hz out of the box again without any adjustments at all anywhere.

    I CANNOT WAIT for samsung to launch the silent freesync firmware updates for existing uhdtvs with freesync chips..... though it's unlikely to happen, they'll most likely finally announce newer UHDTVs with freesync as a function eventually.
