Is that some kind of joke, everything you ask is literally in the picture you quote.

I merely want a confirmation on brand/model of video card (from what he posted we can only assume its his Zotac GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) ZT-50201-10P that he lists in his sig) and cable type being used

really the only thing I know of for sure from the picture is the TV is a Vizio E3D420VX

And the fact he's connected via HDMI so there is no 136hz going on.

IIRC, HDMI 1.4a is more than capable of 1080p120Hz

Well to answer your question, no you are not the only one to discover custom display profiles. biggrin.gif PowerStrip is a fun program, but forcing those settings isn't the best way to keep a display healthy.

Noob question incoming: what are the pros and cons of "overclocking" a monitor by increasing the refresh rate? A while ago i tried doing that on mine, and i went from 60 Hz to 82 Hz, at 2048x1156, and i did not notice a thing. Maybe the refresh rate is still too low to notice?

Yes the card is the Zotac 570GTX the cable is a monoprice 6' 28AWG cable and I was using a SL-DVI to HDMI adapter.

You act like it is impossible to run display cables out of spec have you heard of the catleap 2b monitors they can run 120Hz over a DL-DVI cable.

It might have been too low to notice but in general the higher the refresh rate the smother things look. Manly if your computer can play a game at 82FPS and you monitor is set to 82HZ you will see every frame but if the monitor is set to 60Hz you would miss some of the frames. The bad thing is that you are running your monitor outside of its designed limits so you might damage something.
