Overclocking your monitor refresh rate - AMD GPU's

Recommended Posts

just guess who posted this before,anyways you need to patch dvi freq in order to get this working ,check my thread 

 

Link/source?


My setup used to be linked here but links aren't allowed so... it shall remain a mystery!

I didn't have to do what he described with the 4 monitors I did this on, what I described in the guide seems to work perfectly without any additional steps required. 


AMD FX9370 / Gigabyte HD 7990 / 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866Mhz + 4GB Samsung 1333MHz / 2 x Samsung 840 Pro 128GB (RAID0) / Seagate Barracuda 2TB  / Asus Xonar D2X / Corsair RM750W / Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z / H100i / Fractal Design Define R4

Oh yeah, that could be a thing, Single link DVI might not be enough.

Meh this int worth it overclocking monitors it stupid because most monitors that are 60hz only run at 60hz or if you can push them to 70 or so the pixel response is bad and you get 100% no benefit but possibly a dead monitor.

Is there even any point in overclocking a 120hz monitor?

Not true, I noticed a HUGE difference even when just dragging Windows around on the desktop it looks MUCH MUCH smoother at 70Hz or 75Hz than it did at 60Hz. The increase is also very noticeable in games. If it wasn't worth doing I wouldn't spend time on it making this guide :P

Also...the pixel response time is the time taken for a pixel to respond as the name suggests so... the higher the frequency the lower the time... ;)

I did this a few months ago when I was looking into downsampling (1440p Image Quality on a 1080p panel - Gaming only)

I used CRU to do what you did, 60hz to 75hz, has been great for vsync and those occasional fps dips are much more manageable.

Great work making a guide for other people.

It will not damage the monitor..You will know when its to high cause you will see lines on your screen..But like i said most monitors with multiple inputs will skip frames after 70hz..Just drag a window around your screen to see if it is smoother or more jerky then 60hz..If it is worse then you are frame skipping..

OK, thanks, I tested my monitor and it isn't frame skipping, though I do have a BenQ G2410HD and of all the words used to describe its inputs "multiple" is not one of them the thing seriously only has d-sub and dual link DVI

Sweet..If you want to shoot for a higher OC try LCD reduced in the drop down on CRU..

what's the difference between LCD standard and reduced?
