I guess no dangers if you go a bit too far, but of course this is just for my monitor.

75Hz is still pretty nice, 5Hz more than I am able to run on my main display. Even the extra 10Hz I got out of my 24" seems to be a small, but noticeable, improvement. Mine just did the out of range thing too, but also would display some pretty garbled garbled screens as well when going to high. What we really need to find out about is long term damage, and how to prevent it if possible.

That's another laptop screen going well past 100Hz, pretty impressive. Again guys, could you possibly post some screen captures of your final settings so that others can use the info? If enough people post in this thread, maybe I'll start a spreadsheet of brands/models and overclocks that our members have got, as well as maybe a "date of overclock" and "date of death" heading to have an accurate visual representation of the damage caused. Could find out if only the displays that are highly clocked are being damaged, all of them, few of them, many of them, etc...Bottom line right now though is, no one knows exactly how long they will last overclocked, or why they wouldn't...so until me or someone else can figure that out, this is definitely at your own risk. Especially on a laptop, where the screen could be difficult and expensive to replace, depending on your technical ability. Still amazing though that you got 120Hz out of it...that is awesome. You should look into a replacement screen for it, and determine the cost. Could be worth it just to pick up the replacement up just so that you can not worry about runny 120Hz on your laptop 24/7. That is, only if you feel you could install it yourself.

I just went into the nvidia control panel and made a custom resolution. Bumped it from 60 to 61, hit test, and it worked, so i bumped it to 70 and kept going up by 10s until i got to 120 and saved it.

This is running on a 9600m GT, too.

Probably going to set it back to 60hz, as I intend to sell this laptop in a about a month.

Also, Munchkinpuncher, is the method of overclocking your Catleap the same as what we're doing here, I mean, given you had an Nvidia card?

Pretty much the same method. I am using a program called CRU made by ToastyX. The Nvidia users are using powerstrip I believe.
Both overclocking methods AMD/Nvidia are explained in detail on the first page of the Catleap monitor club. But basically I was just upping the HZ creating a profile in CRU, restart then setting the HZ in Advanced display properties.

Isn't forcing a higher refresh rate on a monitor EXTREMELY dangerous?

MY samsung only does 65hz more for about 30 seconds then goes to black screen. 66hz and above screws the scaler up so badly, it's taking my 1080 res and crushing in to 4:3.

Never knew this was possible tongue.gif I'm going to wait a month or so, see how many people ruin their monitors.
