    Hi! Thank you for the guide! Here's my results:

    Laptop: MSI GS70 6QE Stealth Pro (17.3", 1080p, Skylake)
    Display: CMN N173HGE-E11 - 60Hz (140.00 Pixel clock)

    Using my monitor's stock timings for 100Hz (233.33 Pixel clock) everyday.
    "Reduced" doesn't work even with 80-90Hz (black screen).
    Maximum stable refreshrate i can achieve is 105Hz with manual timings and at 106Hz it begins to artifact.
    "Success 60 -> 105" :)

    Laptop: Dell Inspiron 15 7567
    Display: originally came with the LGD053F, but i asked for screen replacement hoping to get the AUO63ED one, but instead got a BOE06CB
    Overclock: 1080p 80Hz stable with custom timing, anything more than that (more than 200MHz pixel clock) will cause the screen to lose its color, like a grayish, grainy screen.

    I was wondering if anyone could give me tips on how to overclock it with different lower resolution, because i can't seem to get it to work. Putting it to the default LCD Native timings, with different resolution only gives a black screen. :(

    Edit:
    Also, anyone got recommendation for good 15.6 FHD (1920x1080) screen that is overclockable or has high refresh rate, TN or IPS really doesnt matter, as long as its decent looking. :D
    (30 pin eDP)
    Thanks.

    Generally, TNs will fare much better than IPS models and most will do 90Hz+ without a hiccup.

    A great choice for your system would be the N156HHE-GA1; TN, crazy response time, 120Hz minimum (binned, actually), low blacks and a good sRGB coverage. Really, it was designed with fast-paced shooters in mind and the nice image is just a bonus. Only disadvantage is the premium; $50-60 is a fair price, but the GA1 is about $125.

    Yeah, I can't seem to find any cheap 120Hz panel without going over $90 D:
