If you're using vsync, then you should use 1/2 vsync (through Inspector) in combination with a 72FPS limit in RTSS for that. Don't use the "adaptive vsync half refresh" setting in the nvidia panel. That's adaptive vsync. You should use "1/2 vsync" in Inspector instead. 72FPS on 144Hz with normal vsync gives micro-stutter. 1/2 vsync fixes that, and the 72FPS limit will reduce input lag.
