Are you getting confused with overclocking the GPU and overclocking the monitor? The two are different.

Looks like your monitor(s) only go to 110 hz overclock. That's not bad.

Crysis 3 in game settings, for instance.

If you just want to reduce tearing without needing to completely eliminate it, a limiter set a few fps below your refresh rate can give you that effect, without introducing nearly as much of a latency or frame rate hit. I would not suggest only limiting it by 1 frame though - all the global frame limiters I've come across aren't perfectly steady, and the rate your select is a target rather than a rule. 3-5 frames below the refresh rate usually works well.

As for 96 vs 100 - if you're just gaming, 100 will give you the potential for slightly more fluidity, assuming your GPU can push all 100 frames.

Unless we start talking about shoddy ports with hard coded fps, in which case neither one is likely a good option (I say likely because these ports are usually set to multiples of 30. There's no rule about that though, so if for some bizarre reason it's set to 24, 96hz would actually work nicely).

Now, if you want a good global rate for your monitor, 96 is "better" than 100, because the vast majority of content is either going to run at 24fps (videos) or will run at your native refresh rate (anything rendered in real time, such as games). losing up to 4fps in gaming isn't a big deal, and having a more fluid video experience more than makes up for it (IMO).

120hz is what you really want though. It divides cleanly into 24, 30, and 60, thus giving you the ability for stutter and tear free playback of just about everything you are likely to encounter. 120 is also a nice improvement over 100 or 96 in terms of fluidity in games, if you have the GPU power to make use of it.

Another thing to note - the faster your refresh, the less noticeable tearing becomes. It'll still be there if you aren't using vsync - in fact you will actually get more tears - but the shift between frames will be smaller, and thus less visible. If you aren't too sensitive to tearing (sensitive in terms of headaches, I assume everyone who isn't legally blind can see them), running at the highest possible refresh rate with no vsync and no frame limiter is the way to go in games where you can push the framerate to or beyond the refresh rate (assuming you have a reasonably high refresh rate to begin with of course). This doesn't really apply to movies though, so users interested in this for gaming might want to make a second 96hz or 72hz profile for movies.

Which is best to play games at? 96 hz / 100 hz / 105 hz ? (My highest i can go is 105 hz haha frown.gif. )

There is no cut-and-dried answer to that. See what works best for your eyes and your GPU and what you play. More frames (higher Hz) is always generally "better" but there are other subjective factors in the equation.

Just received my matte X-star DP2710 from hulustar. This monitor is great! No dead pixels from what I can tell, but some backlight bleed. OC's to 120Hz with no artifacts using the LCD reduced setting on my GTX 670.

What color profile are people using @ 120Hz to fix the dim/off colors? I noticed there's only one working link to a 120Hz ICC file in the OP. Links to cor35vet profiles are broken.

I increased Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, and Digital Vibrance all in slightly higher-than-default amounts to offset the 120hz effects. Battlefield 3 has some interesting lighting (the sun is REALLY Bright and dark rooms are VERY dark). I think I am going to lower contrast to counteract this extreme difference between bright/dark areas in the game.

There you go: http://botox.ath.cx/files/icc/

Brightness is 12 clicks up from lowest.
