FROM THE OP
Q: Does the monitor overclock?
A: Yes. To see the various overclocks (OCs) reported, look to the expandable section below titled "Members List Form Submission Trends, Analysis" and look for the pie graph of reported OCs.
Q: Can I buy a monitor that will OC to 120 Hz, guaranteed?
A: No, not as far as I know. There are theories that monitors sold by certain sellers have a better chance to OC higher, but it is considered to be random.
Step 1 Update your video card drivers to the newest version.
If using a crossfire (multi AMD GPU) setup, than multiple crossfire bridges must be used. For example, if crossfiring two GPUs than two crossfire bridges must be used.
Note: If you have a 200 or below series Nvidia card (ex: GTX260, etc.), reports suggest that an OC above 96 Hz is not possible. Time for an upgade! smile.gif
Step 2 Single and SLI Nvidia card setups should patch their Nvidia driver to overclock (OC). The patch is more unnecessary for SLI card owners, but its recommended for all Nvidia owners to use. [CLICK] The patch is found here.
AMD/ATI card owners need to patch their driver as well. The patch used is different than the Nvidia one used above. [CLICK] Instructions and patch can be found here.
Step 3 Both the Nvidia and AMD clock patch should include an executable which puts your computer in and out of Test Mode. You need to put your computer in Test Mode and keep it in Test Mode as long as your monitor is OCed. Restart your computer. In the lower right corner it will say "Test Mode" as long as it is on. I've read there is a way to make the text go away.
Step 4 Nvidia and AMD:
Download and install the [CLICK] Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) here.
To use the utility above: click the stock 60Hz profile, press the copy button, make a new profile and then use the paste button. This has created a mirror image of the stock profile. Next, just edit the refresh rate number at the bottom (should be 60 originally) to something like 96. Here is some explanation + pictures of the window that pops up to edit your custom refresh rate in CRU [CLICK]. This makes a refresh rate profile for your computer of 96 Hz. Once that's done, reboot your computer can go into your computer settings (catalyst control center for AMD, and Nvidia control panel for Nvidia) and choose the refresh rate that you just created.
If having bad OC results, it may help to have the "LCD Reduced" enabled in CRU. Also, in CCC enable Reduce DVI Frequency.
And yes i did actually have to search for the VRAM requirements which it has been proven that 2GBs is sufficient without excessive AA.
