Why does it look so smooth then? I was able to cap it at 30fps a week ago and it looked way different.

If you've set your refresh rate to 30 Hz, then all you should need to do is enable V-Sync to lock it at 30. Then, whatever framerate monitor you're using should show it as 30 fps.

It's possible that it looks smooth because:
1. It might be at a constant 30, with no drops.
2. There might not be a lot of screen activity (no fast movements and such) in whatever game you're playing.

If your monitor is refreshing at 30 Hz, it isn't possible for a game to be displaying above 30 FPS. No ifs buts or ands, it flat out isn't possible.
FPS monitoring programs only show you the FPS at the graphics card, not at the monitor.


your font/lettering is annoying.

Hertz is independent of your FPS.

Changing the monitors refresh rate has no effect on the games fps.

FPS = how many frames is being pushed out by your graphics card.

But it DOES have an effect on what you SEE.
