So you want to avoid screen tearing

Have you confirmed that as of now, frame capping at 75fps results in no tearing?

Otherwise you will still get tearing with the display overclocked to 90Hz

 

Regardless of the graphics card you are using, you can use CRU (Custom Resolution Utility) to do the overclock with a custom resolution

With Nvidia cards you can set a custom resolution in Nvidia control panel without any additional software.

You will have to search the internets for the custom resolution settings that might work with your display model/resolution to achieve 90Hz.

 

Good luck

 

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

What you need to do is open the Nvidia Control Panel (I have an AMD card, so I apologise if I make a mistake) and what you need to do, is find something along the lines of "Custom Resolution". Leave everything except the Hz box as default and enter 90. Click apply. It will not apply the overclock yet, so keep following along. Now open Windows Settings and open System

Now, scroll down in Display options and click Advanced Display Settings

Now, click Display Adapter Settings For Display 1

Now, click monitor

Now, in the dropdown box, select 90Hz and click apply. If your monitor presents with an error, follow my steps again but with a slightly lower overclock.

 

Hope I could help :)

 

 

 

 

Thanks!
