today i discovered that awesomely, i could overclock my cheap TN laptop monitor which his default frequency ( and max according to windows ) is 60hz
i could easily go beyond 200hz ( without hardware modding ), the max i reach is about 210hz, after that it was black with a white stripe scan pattern (i can send screenshots as a proof) thought there were some artifacts
As i said it surely might be in the best case 5ms GTG monitor screen, so monitors manufacturers deliberaly flange their vertical frequency
my question is : does all monitors could be modded in a way to remove this "hardware" (if it could be called like this) limit ? ( as cirthix did )
if a 5ms GTG laptop or worse could go beyond 200hz, i dont know why there's this 144hz boundary for 1ms GTG ! ( maybe for warranty/pixel artifacts ? )
it would help a lot for old fast paced games which high fps isnt uncommon, coupled with a decent strobing, it would require less strobe brightness for the same persistence

This is real, no frame skipping, it passes http://www.testufo.com/frameskipping
Here is proof of lol37's successful 60Hz -> 180Hz overclock of this laptop LCD.
An unmodified HP Pavillon dv7 laptop, doing confirmed 180Hz refresh rate.
And the video proof of true 180Hz, zero frameskipping, in action!
