Anyone try overclocking their regular LCDs? - Page 3

post #21 of 60
I'm pretty certain the monitor it's self doesn't actually overclock, the card just puts out more frames in a second. The monitor will most likely stay at the same frequency, and either have the "tearing" effect of no v-sync, and/or distort the picture.

The only way to know for sure would be to bring up the OSD on the monitor, and look in the information section.

According to the OSD, my monitor is actually running at 70Hz. Haven't verified on my TV yet, but will in a few minutes. Still waiting on someone to give us some more information about the potential damage this could cause.

Try the settings I posted on page one for my 32" 1080p TV and see if they work. Remember this is at your own risk though, as I don't want to be held responsible for people ruining their only display, or any display for that matter.

EDIT - Sorry for the double post guys.

Trying it out with my Asus MS238H. Currently at 64hz. Is it just me or does the screen get darker as I move up? Don't know if it's the whole screen but to me the blacks definitely look darker.

I didn't notice this, but I overclocked from my desktop screen (one with all the icons on it, not the screen that I use with my main desktop) which doesn't have a lot of black on it. Could be possible I guess, though not sure how or why that would happen.

It's not really hurting anything so I guess it's fine. Not super noticeable. At 70hz now biggrin.gif How did you know when to stop? Or did you just stop?

I knew when to stop when I couldn't take it any further, either getting a garbled/flickery/noisy display, or an "unsupported range" message or something on my monitor. My monitor topped out at 70Hz, my TV topped out at 81Hz, but figured I'd set it to the nice round number of 80Hz, if only because it looks more like a stock specification than 81Hz.

I managed to get my Dynex 32" 720p tv up to 82Hz and I got my HP S1933 up to 71Hz both are 60Hz default

Nice, would you mind taking some screen captures of the settings to add to the thread? Just so that others have something to look at, and so maybe collectively we can make some sense of what is actually happening and how. What the settings do, what are we actually overclocking (if anything?), do we have to worry about heat, what sort of damage is possible, are there ways to prevent such damage (active versus passive cooling?), etc...Interesting to see though that your TV got about the same as mine, and your monitor got about the same as mine. I wonder why pDimflAn's laptop got so much higher, all the way to 106Hz...which is Shimian / Catleap territory.

Also, still no one to chime in on whether or not this is equally or more dangerous than overclocking said Korean brand 27" IPS panels?

Also just managed to get both to display at a non-native resolution of 1920x1080 by messing around with the Nvidia control panel thing. The picture quality is actually still pretty decent.
