So I have a problem with my monitors, whenever I watch any youtube vids at fullscreen, I will get screen tear no matter what, but the thing is I don't get any screen tear when I play games, even AAA at max settings above 60 fps.

In short: Monitor, Samsung S24F35 1920 x 1080 60 Hz

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screen_tearing

The above article describes what screen tearing is, but to break it down, screen tearing occurs when frames are loaded out of sync with the monitor (generally, when the GPU has loaded more than one frame by time the monitor is ready for a new frame). I would check to assure your monitor is 60Hz, then I would use a constant on screen for counter to figure out what's happening. Some games offer you to use a feature known as V-sync which locks the fps and prevents it from surpassing the refresh rate of the monitor. You would probably need third party software to do it, but you could probably force that on constantly if it's really an issue.

I'm 100% sure the monitor is at 60 Hz, even gone thorugh some vsync test to insure the monitor is running at 60 Hz at all times, and I have turned off vsync in all games, yet no screen tear.

Right click on the desktop and select display / display adapter properties. Also try right clicking the desktop and selecting NVIDIA control panel

Check to see what display frequency you are outputting via this path in control panel "Display" > "Change Display Settings" > "Advanced Settings" > "Monitor" tab. It should be labeled under "screen refresh rate." If this isn't set to 60, do so now.

I have already done that, and it is at 60 Hz, so I'm not sure was the problem is with my monitor.

It's really not an eloquent solution, but would you be able to try a fresh install of Windows?
