VG259QM 300hz overclock

I managed to overclock my monitor to 300hz using CRU and a very low resolution, 1024x640. In the monitor OSD settings I noticed the overclock "on" and "off" option. At 300hz it doesn't seem to change anything whether I turn the overclock on or off, it always reads at 300hz. Although when I turn the monitor overclock osd setting to "on" the picture looks brighter. I'm not sure if im just seeing things. Are there any advantages or disadvantages to setting the overclock feature to "on or "off" in the monitor OSD settings?

On an unrelated topic, does the VividPixel setting have any effect on input lag?

I've always played with max refresh rate and uncapped fps for lowest input lag. I don't bother with any of the sync technologies. I've been trying to find my preferred settings with this new monitor but am having trouble searching for it online because it's so new.

Neat!

To test the success of your overclocking, do you mind photographing www.testufo.com/frameskipping ?

Im clueless when it comes to cameras. Can i just point and click my iphone camera? No idea how to do 1/10th exposure or decrease camera iso.

I took a picture with my monitor brightness at 0.

That’s good enough —

And yes, the 300Hz overclock looks good. For future photo sharing, I should overlay the refresh rate on top of full screen mode, in the next modification of TestUFO

What did you settle with? ELMB seems slower to me. I do like VividPixel and do not feel any delay. What was max OC @ 1080p and what firmware? I am on 105.
