sometimes people are fooling with hardware not in their specs.

But though i would not run such a powerful machine with dual monitros if they were CRT monitors XD No but really.. just why shouldnt i be oc'ngmy monitor, i have runned them 2 days straight now without them getting hotter than normal and without bad quality, they are just as normal but everyithing runs smoother and better

Sure, it's fine to run them that way, it is your stuff. You have read what we all recommend. Like any hardware that's artificially forced to run beyond it's engineered capabilities, it will wear out faster.

Yeah im aware of that.. but totaly worth it for feeling much more eased while using the computer.. Also when the monitors die i will just get a pair of 120-144hz monitors (just becouse they are awesome for desktop use i will never reach thoose fps with my computer) and also when thoose monitors die i will also have a much better economy...

Ok then, bumping up the refresh rate above the recommended isn't going to make your picture better or any easier on your eyes.

Refresh rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Liquid Crystal Displays[edit]

Refresh rate or the temporal resolution of an LCD is the number of times per second in which the display draws the data it is being given. Since activated LCD pixels do not flash on/off between frames, LCD monitors exhibit no refresh-induced flicker, no matter how low the refresh rate. However, high refresh rates may result in visual artifacts that distort the image in unpleasant ways. High-end LCD televisions now feature up to 600 Hz[citation needed] refresh rate, which requires advanced digital processing to insert additional interpolated frames between the real images to smooth the image motion. Such high refresh rates may not be supported by pixel response times, resulting in distorted images.
For a refresh rate of 600Hz to be displayed correctly, a LCD display would require a response time of approximately 1.667 (5/3) milliseconds GtG (grey-to-grey). In addition to the technical aspects of achieving such a high refresh rate, there are limits to the capability of the human eye. However, improving the response time of LCD pixels would improve the image quality for refresh rates that are on the fringe of what the human eye is capable of processing.

I have seen people say that 75Hz is smoother, etc. An LCD panel is just a different animal. Unlike a HDTV that artificially adds frames by looking at the previous frame, and the next and calculating what the extra frame should be, an LCD monitor would just display the extra frames (75 vs 60). In theory, that would result in smoother video, since the change between one frame and another is quicker. IF the monitor supports the higher frequency, then there would be no harm in running it at the higher rate. But most monitors will not support 75Hz, at least at higher resolutions.

Look at this tutorial, and look at all supported rates. If a 75Hz rate is listed, note the screen resolution.

Screen Refresh Rate - Display Settings

Monitor ran fine with 75Hz, Now with new computer the picture gets :(-hz.jpg

Also, just because the monitor supports a frequency/resolution, doesn't mean the GPU/driver will. I don't game, so I am unsure whether a games graphics would make the difference noticeable, but in regular PC use, I doubt it. And at 60Hz and above, there would be no noticeable flicker effect, so it wouldn't be perceptible as to effect eye strain for instance.

Good point. Yes, they both play a part, your video card has to support what your monitor wants. If you had a CRT monitor connected and looked at the screen you posted you'd see a lot more options with something other than the 60Hz at the end. Anyway, I had my say and I'm not going to debate it any more. It's his gear and he can do what he wants with it. I don't think anything is going to blow up as a result of what he is doing I just don't see the point in doing it is all.
