preferably 4k displays since they are the most stringent. i was wondering as iv never really ran across this anywhere but wondered about overclock monitors and how long they would last ect. I have a LG 27UD68 4k monitor and have been really curious about especially once the next gen graphics cards come out

I don't think so not specifically overclocked monitors. There's really nothing to discuss, most 100Hz display can be "overclocked" to 120 and 144Hz screens can be overclocked to 160Hz. It's just a setting you turn on of off.

Can't be done. There's no extra switch on monitor panels that's suddenly going to give it an extra 15Hz. Sure, a monitor does have a BIOS, but there's nothing in the settings that will unlock extra power like motherboards or GPUs, it just isn't there.

Graphics card has nothing to do with a display's refresh rate. That is strictly determined by the monitor, nothing else can make it get a higher refresh rate.
