For those of you who don't know, you can create custom resolutions using Nvidia's Control Panel or Amd's Catalyst Whatever.Just like with overclocking anything, it's probably going to put some wear on your monitor because it's overclocking your monitors electronics. While creating custom resolutions you can increase the refresh rate of your monitor. You can't just set it to random 120hz and expect it to work.
Navigate to the Nvidia Control Panel>display>change resolution>customize>create custom resolution.
Say you have a 60hz monitor but you would like it to run a little faster. Maybe say 85hz. Well, you set it to 85hz and hit that test button...black screen. 10 seconds later and you're back to where you started. Then you try 80...black screen.Then you try 75hz...monitor flashes...it asks you if you want to keep the current resolution...you're now ixisweating profusely. There's a warmth that overcomes you as you click the "yes" button.
It's relatively easy to do (and from what I've read) pretty safe as well.
Here's a guide: Linus(if you're into that sort of thing)
