A Windows equivalent is Powerstrip:

It lets you set modes not available in monitor EDID specs. Timo van
Kerkoerle mentioned it to me, and has used it to overdrive CRTs beyond
their rated settings. I've only done such things on Linux, personally.

There is an alternative, called RivaTuner, but it is occasionally
foiled by Nvidia graphics driver updates.
