Monitor overclocking guide - 60-80Hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is my overclocking guide from my experience with an AOC 2775 monitor 

 

First open Nvidia control panel and disable DSR in the manage 3D settings tab. I don't know why it isn't compatible, but it isn't.

Next enter the change resolution tab. If you disabled DSR it will allow you to customize. Press create custom resolution and then move up the refresh rate 1Hz at a time. I have heard this can kill your monitor, but it seems pretty safe. Keep moving it up 1Hz at a time testing every time. When you get to a refresh rate your monitor does not support, wait 20 seconds and Nvidia will automatically fix it for you. I was able to get stable on 80Hz with no issue, but 81 was out of range. Apply the changes and then make sure to change your resolution to custom, for me 1920x1080, progressive, then click refresh rate and select your overclock. Finally go to testufo.com to make sure you actually are getting the OC. The jump to 80Hz has been amazing, but make sure your GPU is up to the task.

From what I recall, monitor overclocking is pretty difficult. I don't know that many monitors that support it, other than some of the higher end gaming displays.

I have a non high end gaming monitor and it works fine. Pretty sure it works with all of them with nvidia gpus

So I could potentially take my Dell SE2717HR and my GTX 780, and take my refresh rate from stock 75 to 80-85Hz?

Yes. I am happy to help in any way I can.

Have you tested it to make sure it's not frame skipping?

Yeah, I have, but this is important to the process and I forgot about it
