Worth it to OC monitor to 66hz from 60?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a cheepo acer monitor that I managed to run at 66hz, does OCing the panel degrade it faster or not, (my first time OCing monitors)... and if it doesn't is there any way I can get it to the 75hz that my second monitor runs at?

I REALLY doubt that 6Hz difference can be noticed by one's eyes. Can't comment on OC'ing monitors. Didn't know it could be done! My point is, if the extra OC'ing of the monitor DOES degrade the monitor faster, and the human eye cannont detect the difference from 60Hz to 66Hz, why do it? On the OTHER hand, 75Hz WOULD be noticable. Hmmm... Why not just spring for 120Hz monitors? I can testify to how awesome they are...

My 580 can OC well enough to drive BF3 and PS2 at 75fps but not 120 frown.gif and besides I am currently saving up for one of those catleap 2b monitors for true epicness. The only issue is I would either need to upgrade to a 7970 (need the compute ability of my 580) or SLI my 580 with another one possibly a classy ... hmmmm

I've played around with different refresh rates, the lowest bump up from 60hz that I could actually notice was 75hz, but it was nothing compared to 120hz.

Considering that it's a whole 10%, I'm sure you can notice that just as much as your 10% GPU OC.

Hehe... Subtle jab; Honestly, I'm not sure 10% on my graphics card is particularly noticeable either to my eyes. Been experimenting with getting higher OC's now on my 570. On the other hand, I'm really close to upgrading my graphics anyway.
