Anyone try overclocking their regular LCDs? - Page 6

Interesting thread. Never thought about doing this. subbed thumb.gif

Thread Starter 
Well, I decided to leave my main display at 70Hz...this thread may be stagnant for awhile, but if something goes horribly wrong with my monitor, I'll dig it up and post right away. It has made it overnight at least...If anyone else wants to try this, please post your results, though I don't expect many people to overclock their displays when we don't yet know how harmful it is. I am thinking with mine I might have it use 70Hz for gaming, and 60Hz for everything else, at least until we can figure out what is being damaged. After gaming for a couple hours with the 70Hz and 80Hz, it felt nice and smooth. My TV still has terrible ghosting though, so I think I prefer my 24" monitor at 70Hz over my 32" television at 80Hz. I can imagine how nice gaming on a 120Hz would be though...but I don't think my lone GTX 570 could even handle it.

The only way to know for sure would be to bring up the OSD on the monitor, and look in the information section.
The monitor overclocks. Assuming no VSync, the card always puts out the maximum frames per second regardless of the monitor.

If the monitor stays at the same frequency, it would have no impact on VSync or reduced tearing.

Did you know that you can overclock your router? wink.gif

Hmm... I really want to try this on my m17x, but the option to "Customize" on Nvidia Panel is grayed out. Does anyone know how to get around this restriction?

Try switching to advanced view. There should be a prompt or tab somewhere to enable advanced view when you start the Control Panel

BenQ G2400WD gets out of range on any custom setting. Odd.

That sounds like protection built into the monitor, to me! thinking.gif

Thats what I thought too. Seems pretty silly.

Just tried it on my Samsung monitor, and could reach 70hz!

However, on most games it would get back to 60hz fullscreen...

My old Dell monitor would do 80Hz I never left it like that because I was afraid of damage though.
