Sorry about that reply. I don't like how it sounded. I think I was kinda rude.
Anyway, I stayed away from overclocking my monitor when I overclocked to 180Hz and lost some contrast and had other little differences that I wasn't 100% happy with (but probably wouldn't have been noticeable to most people). So, I tried 170Hz and it was better. Then I tried 160Hz and it looked identical to 144Hz. So I left it there and now my monitor is overclocked to 160Hz because, why not? :) You inspired me to do it. Thank you. I don't know if I'm really experiencing any difference because it's only a difference of 16Hz, but still, higher is higher.
I think that even though 160Hz is only 16Hz faster, it seems to have noticeably improved the connected feeling between me and my mouse at the desktop. I seem to have greater accuracy and control now. I'm having to think less about what I'm aiming at. It's like, I just move the mouse and click and bullseye, I nail my target every time. That wasn't really happening until I switched to 160Hz. At 170Hz and 180Hz, the contrast is noticeably reduced and so it's not worth it.
