How to overclock your monitor - nVidia

Post #1 by Gregster » Mon May 12, 2014 10:40 pm

very easy with nVidia (not sure for AMD) but like this.

Start the NCP and choose "Change resolution"

Image

Click customize and click "create custom resolution"

Image

You will see some options to alter and you will see "Refresh Rate" Change that to a sensible number and click on test.

Image

If it works, you will get an option to accept or if it doesn't work, you will have a black screen for 20 seconds. Once you have reached a number, click back on the "Change resolution" and you should now see your new refresh rate res as an option :)

Great thread Greg.

Great feature this if you have the hardware that plays ball. I currently game at 1440p/120Hz by doing the above and it runs sweet! Best of both worlds as they say :D

I could overclock the Dell to 84Hz but this Samsung will not budge at all.
