The HZ27WC doesn't have overdrive, so if the Shimian is the same monitor, it probably doesn't either. Only the HZ27WA has overdrive.

Cause I thought doing that is forcing the monitor's firmware to have certain settings that function beyond the normal factory settings at the native res. (in this case, the ability to have a 70hz+ refresh rate while maintaining native 2560x1440 res without having to make it a custom res).
The Phoenix EDID Designer is just a program to create and edit EDID information. It doesn't modify anything. You'd have to save the EDID to a data file and do something with it, like use another program to create an inf file from the data file, then install the inf file, which then adds an EDID override in the registry. My program does all that without having to deal with inf files. It also removes the timing limits information from the override so it doesn't interfere with custom resolutions.
Changing the EDID won't affect what the monitor accepts. The monitor doesn't care about the EDID. It's just there to tell the graphics driver what resolutions to use.

Here's a picture of the back after the gray part was removed:
You can see the four mounting holes in the center.
