So it looks like I've got 185Hz at 1920x1080!

Talk about overclocking displays at a higher refresh rate. This includes QNIX, Catleap, Overlord Tempest, SEIKI displays, certain HDTVs, and other overclockable displays.

So it looks like I've got 185Hz at 1920x1080!

ImageIt's a 144Hz monitor I bought through e-bay, I'll try to find a model.

Edit: It's called the X-star DP2414LED.

240Hz or not worth it :mrgreen:

Only half kidding. 240Hz is the only refresh rate next to 120Hz that can accurately reproduce 24/30/60 FPS content.

That's why everyone needs adaptive sync ;)

I jumped to 200 after 180 because I'd gone up in small increments up to that point and was beginning to think that I'd stumbled upon some miracle monitor (I didn't expect much considering it's a monitor I'd bought for £120) but at that point the screen went black and flickery. Dropped it down to 190 and shit was still weird and blurry. Dropped down another 5 and decided to leave it there for now. :D

The thing is, all of the content I watch (except youtube of course) is with SVP (Smooth Video Project) which interpolates video to a higher framerate so perfect scaling isn't an issue to me 8-)

Now you need overdrive at such high refresh rate :)

Pro tip:

I sometimes use SVP for youtube (for gaming footage that's only 30FPS.) Works fine. (Through SMplayer with MPV backend. I'm on Linux though.) You just drag&drop the video link from youtube into smplayer and watch it.
