What happens with these fps settings

I have a 60hz monitor. After finding out about 144hz and all that and deciding to perhaps not buy me a really expensive new monitor for 1 game (Also because I am very used to 60hz and feel like I might not really need a whole new monitor for one game), I thought about how to optimise my game to get the highest fps, I tried these settings:

fps_max 1000
and -freq 144 (In my launch options)

This was just experimental. I am not sure what about my game has changed, but it feels kinda smoother, but that might just be a placebo.

I am unsure, so I wanted to ask if these settings somehow affect my game, and if not what I should set these to.

make fps_max 300, take the launch option out because it won't do anything

Thanks a lot! One more question though: Does having your fps_max set to a too high value have negative effects on your game? Just curious

No. CPUs are smart nowadays, it will not negatively affect your system, special asterisk for laptops for this, however.
