Am I just doing something wrong or does it mean that I am not going to be able to go past 96 Hz in any way? Cheers!

You need to use the driver patch that unlocks your pixel clock for 400mhz+ smile.gif. It's in the OP... that error is what you'll get if it isn't patched properly. Also, note that on 200-series cards and lower the driver patch doesn't work from what I've read (and can confirm on a 9600 GSO), which limits you to right around 96hz.

I'm up to 112hz stable with manual timings, think I'll probably stay here. Seems to be the best balance of high rate and not causing too much darkening on colors for my panel.

I have used the patch but I haven't heard about the problems with 200-series cards frown.gif I've got a GTX260 so that's probably the cause why I can't overclock to 120 Hz frown.gif

Yeah, I dug around some when I couldn't figure out why the patch applied but wasn't working, for my old backup card (I was waiting on my 660 Ti SLI to arrive, which it did this morning). I found someone mention that it won't work in the drivers for 200-series and below, which seems to be true because I'm able to go for broke with the new cards as far as pixel-clock is concerned. It doesn't seem to be a well-known tidbit... frown.gif.

So anyone figure out the best workaround to the issue of 5xx series cards not clocking down when idle if the pixel clock is over 404MHz?

Can I lower the pixel clock on the fly when not gaming without having to reboot? I know about the idle screen saver but my concern is when using the computer for non-gaming tasks, not during idle periods.

Just to be sure, this wasn't a pixel perfect right?
And it's more or less this one right? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-X-STAR-DP2710LED-27-LED-2560x1440-QHD-Computer-Monitor-Matte-/111070644047?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_Monitors&hash=item19dc53874f


Cheers!

Thanks smile.gif
and yeah its the same listing.

What!?
I have a 5xx card, I didn't knew about this. Well nevermind I wasn't overclocking anyways.
Just curious what if I hit 144 Hz.... tongue.gif

I wonder if the 200 series and below nvidia cards have a hardware limitation that prevents high OC, or purely software. I would assume that it is a hardware-based limitation, in specific bandwidth/speed limitation? I will add that to the op, though

I got mines at 10:30 am today and I only have one stuck pixel and minor BLB on both lower corners.
Here are some pictures.

Also I got a piece of paper saying they had checked my monitor, I don't know if dream-seller does this for all monitors or just "pixel perfect" ones, I did not buy a "pixel perfect" monitor so there's that.

wow just notice some pretty bad screen burn after leaving the monitor on for a couple hours with nothing changing.

i wonder if the 96hz OC has anything to do with it :S

Wait, you left 96hz on in the desktop? I'd rather use it just for games.
post #1190 of 25887
Well it should go away...

And it's useful on the desktop too. Mouse tracking and such. I sure can't be bothered to remember to launch CRU all to switch all the damn time anyway. Ain't nobody got time fo that.
