    My Dell 7577 stock 15.6" UHD panel ( AUO20EB - F2TW2_B156ZAN ) got a massive +3Hz more OC from 59Hz(stock, wtf? lol) to 62Hz(auto-standard) not messing with any timings manually. My external monitor (ASUS VW266H) went from 60Hz to 71Hz. Better than nothing. :)

    Hi. HP Omen 17 without Optimus, the CPU iGPU is disabled and the system runs with the 1070 graphics card. What driver must I install for my laptop? I have the i7 7700HQ CPU. Thanks.

    Up to you but start slow to be safe. Something like 65Hz to begin with. Thanks for all who reported their results, main post is updated.

    My screen is 75Hz factory but want to increase it to 90 or 100Hz? I don't have Optimus and my i7 7700HQ has the integrated graphics disabled. What do I install sir?? Thanks for your help and assistance :)

    Edit after someone very politely pointed out that I misread your post:

    You may download CRU https://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Custom-Resolution-Utility-CRU or simply use the Nvidia Control Panel to create a custom resolution. However in my experience I have found that those don't always play as nicely and CRU works best IMO. Go into the CRU program and add a custom resolution with the refresh rate you want. Reboot and select the refresh rate from the display options. If the refresh rate doesn't work properly or black screens don't worry just go back to the old one. It may take some trial and error since you have to reboot each time to use the new custom refresh rates you create.
