If you are using SLI you need to use the full patch!..nvlddmkm-patcher-full.exe
.if you are not
using SLI you do NOT
need to use the FULL patch...if you plan on NEVER going over 96hz most do not
need to Patch at all...however if you do not have Sli and you want to go over 96hz you will most likely need to patch using the nvlddmkm-patcher.exe
Also CRU uses EDID overrides which conflict with Nvidia Geforce Experience and Also Samsung Magician so your choices are uninstall Nvidia Geforce Experience and if you have installed Samsung Magician!... Or you can import into CRU the blank-extension.dat which is supposed to enable you to use CRU without conflicts with Nvidia Geforce Experience and Samsung Magician...However using the blank-extension.dat is NOT a perfect fix and some conflicts are still seen on occasions with windows still NOT seeing your Custom resolutions!..
So you will be better off following my instructions below and using my monitor Driver file i have linked below!...This monitor driver Method results in NO conflicts at all and windows will always be able to see your custom resolutions!.. Also you are able to keep Nvidia Geforce Experience and Samsung Magician installed...if you do exactly as i say below your Custom profiles will work Flawlessly
1: Go to Nvidia control panel and delete custom resolutions you have made in there...if you have not of course there's no need
2: now open CRU hit delete at the top right hand corner of CRU...
3: now go to the CRU zip file and find the file reset-all.exe and run it...then reboot and then go to step 4:
4: : download and install the Qnix monitor driver below..(Install using the Device Manager -> Monitors -> Right-click "Generic PnP Monitor" -> Update Driver Software... -> Browse my computer for driver software -> Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer -> Have Disk... -> Browse for the Qnix.inf file -> OK -> Next -> Install this driver software anyway)
5: If using windows 8 you need to turn off Driver signature enforcement for one windows session only to install the monitor driver..use this link and follow the instructions if you are using windows 8 http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-can-i-install-hardware-with-unsigned-drivers-in-windows-8/
6: Go to Nvidia control panel and back to custom resolutions and make your 120hz using manual timings and using the exact same timings that i have in my Nvidia control panel from the picture below..when you was using CRU for your 120hz resolution we need to get it closer to the 450mhz limit...using my 120hz timings you will bring your pixel clock down to 459mhz and you will have a much stronger signal....if you are going to use a 96hz profile you do not need to use these timings for 96hz...just add a 96hz refresh rate for that custom resolution
7: select your custom resolution from Nvidia control panel and test!....using this method you do NOT need to uninstall Nvidia Geforce experience...have fun!
