how to overclock monitor

was confused why changing my 2nd monitor from 60hz to 65hz stretched it to high hell and made it look like 240p

That may mean two things. 

 

#1 The "Create Custom Resolution" option defaults to the selected resolution on screen at the time of selecting it. Ensure you have your current resolution highlighted or change it to the correct one. 

 

#2 it may just be out of your monitors supported range and it is unable to encode the data you're sendng it. 

 

If the settings are correct then you're simply unable to overclock. Monitors on the cheap end are just that... cheap. The hardware will sometimes have a limiter or simply a difficulty detecting data beyond its supported range.

If you are using a Nvidia graphics card it is simple. 

 

Go into your Nvidia Control Panel (I get there by right clicking the desktop) Then under "Change Resolution" under where your monitors are listed select "Customize" and add a new preset with your monitors resolution and your new refresh rate! Try 5 or so more than 60 to start and keep going from there.

 

Just because desktop is stable DOESN'T mean your games will. So always try a game between changes even if it saves correctly. 

 

**EDIT**

 

Didn't read your entire post. With that graphics card I'd be amazed if you're even utilizing the full 144hz in your monitor. Check to make sure that 144hz is enabled. It usually isn't by default in my experience. there wouldn't be a reason for most to go beyond that. IF your eyes are able to perceive that framerate you wouldn't see a difference until you get into the 240hz range. A handful or two of FPS wouldn't make a difference.
