Nah it's not worth it. You're not going to really see a noticeable difference and it's just gonna reduce the life of your monitor

That's not true, I went from 60hz to 75hz on one of my monitors, and although it's not my main one anymore it's still my second one and I've had it for years. And I saw the difference.

Yeah but each monitor is different, you may or may not be able to overclock 15hz and you may damage your monitor whilst doing so

Which is why Nvidia control panel restricts you from overclocking too far.

First of all: you don't know he might use AMD. Second of all: in the long term, he might damage his monitor even without a heavy overclock. Thirdly, overclocking can sometimes void your warranty

I know he uses amd, I'm saying Nvidia because I know that's how Nvidia works, and I'm assuming that amd works the same way. I have overclocked my monitor 15hz above in the long term and had no damage. And who was ever talking about warranty?
2019-05-19 16:42
No one was talking about warranty I'm just suggesting that it's a bad idea and that he probably shouldn't do it

You are wrong. I Overclocked my 60hz panel to 120hz, the difference is huge. Have been running my monitor overclocked for more than a year, nothing changed.

0/8
2019-05-19 16:27
what's 0/8 about that dumb guy?
2019-05-19 16:29
That's literal bullshit. There's no way you can practically double the refresh rate of a monitor and have it running fine. You'd have damaged it way before you even hit 120Hz
2019-05-19 16:31
nah. I actually overclocked my 8k 32hz monitor to 400hz once. It was pretty cool getting 1,200 FPS on CSGO.
2019-05-19 16:32
Why the fuck would I lie on hltv forum? what the fuck could I actually gain from this, tell me smart guy.
2019-05-19 16:33
Cuz it's impossible to do , it would make no sence to spend 400$+ on a monitor if you could just buy a 100$ 60hz and overclock it to 120hz...
2019-05-19 16:43
I aren't think that
2019-05-19 16:28
What makes you think someone cares what you think man? Just facts that 60hz to 120hz difference is kinda big.
2019-05-19 16:30
What makes you think that someone cares what you think man? If everyone would be as close minded like you, there would be no discourse on this forum
2019-05-19 16:31
We're not saying that there isn't a difference between 60 and 120 (there's a big one), we're just saying it's impossible to overclock your monitor from 60 to 120
2019-05-19 16:33
tell me again what do I have to gain from spreading lies on this forum. you are such a funny guy.

If you're doing it with Nvidia control panel, if you try and overclock your monitor too high it won't let you. There's no danger, your monitor won't blow up. You can probably go more than 10hz even.
2019-05-19 16:22
rip tried form amd control panel,won't even let me oc from 75 to 80 in native 1080p,i should try at lower res

If it won't let you do that then it's not worth it. Don't downgrade your res, that will look like complete shit. It doesn't always work.

60 to 76 = 100% safe 75 to 85 = 75% safe 120 to 141 = 50% safe 144 to 165 = 50% safe just use nvidia control painel, dont use CRU.
