Hello,

Just ordered a Fangbook with a 17" screen and Geforce 1060.  Curious if anyone has any experience with overclocking their Cyberpower laptop screens,  I'm guessing they should be able to do at least 75hz.

Why do you want to overclock a screen? If it's already at 60Hz why change it?

Good question!
 
As you know when your gaming typically you enabled V-sync either in the game itself or within your GPU's driver control panel.  This locks the game's frame rate to your displays refresh rate, most of them being 60hz.  Many display manufacturers are selling factory overclocked displays that offer up to 144hz and some being even higher!  The effect of this being smoother, clearer, more realistic gameplay.  Most displays will overclock higher than 60hz and this can be done right from Nvidia's control panel.  If you can coax 75hz, 85hz, or even higher (typically you want to aim for increments of 24hz).  If your GPU is up to the task and you have your refresh rate up to something over 60hz then enabling vsync allows even more frames per second without screen tearing.  There can be some inherent danger to overclocking displays, but I have never actually heard of anyone damaging one before.  If you set a refresh rate in the Nvidia control panel that doesn't work then nothing will display on your screen.  Wait a few seconds and it will revert back to default.

Correct, MSI Afterburner works well for overclocking GPU core and your GPU Ram and monitoring temps, voltages, fan speed, and video ram usage, power limits, and more.  I can't remember if Afterburner has it or not but Evga Precision X, a different program for doing the same things that Afterburner does, will also do monitor refresh rate overclocking.

I personally haven't heard of anybody overclocking it so Idk how far it can be pushed. Obviously you can overclock the screen from the geforce software if you end up wanting to overclock the screen.

sorry, had to slip this in I am thoroughly enjoying my 1440/144hz monitor by benQ  after having a 1920x1080 which was awesome if only 15 inches. this is 24 inches and I have set all my website screens to 150% and can read them so much better.
