post #12221 of 25911
Quick question as I have no idea what I'm going. I overclocked the monitor with evga pixel clock prog and it seemed to work just fine but when I tried using the CRU and restarted to check my windows changed to windows basic and now no matter what refresh rate I try it's at 30fps in the http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping even though nvidia tells me it's at 60, 96 and 120 hz.

Why is this? What went wrong?

EDIT: Ok so the windows is not put to basic and is still aero but things changed so much and I can't see through things so I'm guessing that's the color scheme I changed to.
But the fps thing is still a problem. Don't help if I restart.

EDIT2: So. I realised that the reason why things looked different was not because of the color scheme but the color depth was changed from high to medium.

Basically I need help tongue.gif I don't get why I can't oc it at all with High color depth.

EDIT3: I now tried to clock with evga pixel clock with high color depth to 96 and the http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping tells me that the fps won't hold stable and is between 58-60 when at full screen but when I put the browser in a smaller window it goes stable at 96fps.

You need to start over and do some reading. You are OVERCLOCKING, you need to know what you are doing before you start. There is tons of information is this thread regarding proper overclocking. Try searching "front porch" and you will find a wealth of information from me and other members that have already posted dozens of times for members in your predicament.

Managed to snag a 7970 Matrix Platinum, which will replace one of my 7970 Lightning boosts.
I don't really like the looks, but I guess I'll simply have to deal with it.

About to buy this one right here.
http://www.ebay.nl/itm/New-Matte-27-Slim-Qnix-QX2710-Evolution-II-LED-PLS-2560x1440-QHD-Monitor-DVI-D-/321237616203?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4acb41064b&_uhb=1

I read that storewithstory was a decent seller ( greensum did best of all ).
This screen was simply the cheapest from a seller I've read a lot of people bought from.

Am I about to make a mistake or is there something else I should buy?

Thanks guys! thumb.gif

17 something euro

EDIT: Thought I'd mention now that I've checked for BLB and dead pixels. There are no dead pixels and there is a very slight BLB at the bottom right which I only notice when looking at in pitch dark and black background. I will probably never notice it under any other circumstances so I'm so damn happy right now tongue.gif StorewithStory on Ebay get's my thumbs up.
