My Qnix is on its way but i need HELP please with how to overclock it...

Ive read you need:

- a pixel patch to update nvidia drivers to allow higher pixel clock
- CRU program
- if you do it through the nvidia control panel its only faster hz in windows but NOT in games
- if you have a 700 series nvidia card or higher you CAN use the nvidia control panel with out all the other stuff...

Whats the real deal! Ive been searching for hours with no concrete answers.

edit* the OP says to still download CRU but a reply said they could just use nvidia control panel for custom resolution and it was available in bf4.. STILL CONFUSEED smile.gif Also - How would I know for sure in game if it was working... once we figure out the right way to do it?


Thank you for any help, I'm so excited to try 96-120hz !


ps. if you can please rep, I need 25 to make a post to sell my Sparta 300. thx

Just get CRU and copy the default profile and make a new one with 96-120 hz, reboot and you should see that resolution available to games.

The pixel patch is for older cards, and Nvidia Control Panel is for Windows only, even on 7xx cards as far as I'm aware.

I haven't messed with the color profiles yet.

I just made the 120hz profile in the nvidia control panel and I have the option for it in bf4 with a 7xx card. Haven't messed with any color profiles.

But like he said its going to be optimization too. One780ti runs its a steady 85 - 90 fps two I know is not going to be amazing but it should still accomplish 120 fps. Evary other game can max out and accomplish 120 fps easily. BF4 in all actuality though should have been delayed on the launch date due to bugs and issues. At best its beta stage.

So I can do 96Hz and it's been fine for about 3-4 months. I tried 110hz but get a small buzzing sound when switching it on. other than that no buzz sound etc etc. should I stick to 96Hz or try to go 110Hz as I'm running 2x R9-280x and I can almost maintain 110fps in BF4

Have you tried with a different DVI-D cable other than the one included with the monitor? I've read that a lot of people have fixed OC issues by purchasing a decent cable thumb.gif

Damn, whats up with gpu power at 50% when overclocking to 120hz?

Well there are two sides to this VERY repetitive topic.

First, the timings that are set when optimizing the pixel clock do not fit into the power stages of your GPU which generally makes the power state stay at a less than idle rate. this generally doesn't allow the memory of the gfx card to fully idle or downclock. [This is something that can be fixed with using regular timings or adding enough optical blacks to fit the power state, not something that is really worth slaving over especially for an extra 10 watts and 5 degrees GPU temp]

Second, the resolution and refresh is literally too high for the idle power state "P0" to even be reached, The P0 power state is generally a very low frequency(around 200-400mhz) with the Qnix at 1440p@120hz you have more active pixels per second than many multi monitor solutions with just a single monitor. If you add a second or third monitor to that then you have pushed just your desktop presentation to a mid level rendering event thus requiring a higher GPU speed than P0 can provide. I have 3 monitors connected and if i disconnect both my secondary monitors the GPU will downclock further.

Bottom line is that the GPU sitting at P1 instead of P0 is not going to hurt anything. You will have slightly higher idle temps and use a few more watts per second.

More pixels per unit time = more processing per unit time = more heat/power
