But i also tested the frameskpping test (http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping
) and it showed 60fps and 60hz. So something must be wrong and i don´t understand what. Any idea?
I would personally not
use CRU with Nvidia as EDID overrides can conflict with Nvidia Geforce experience which means sometimes or indeed many times windows will not see your custom resolutions!.....Your choices Using Nvidia are as follows.....Use CRU and import the blank-extension.dat into CRU when making custom resolutions which should allow you to use CRU and keep Nvidia Geforce experience installed without conflicts....However for me importing the blank-extension.dat into CRU.... windows still refused on many occasion to see my custom resolutions!...The other method which i recommend you use and will work 100% with Nvidia users without any conflicts is to use the monitor driver method!...Follow the steps below to switch from CRU to using the Qinx monitor Driver method!
1: now open CRU hit delete at the top right hand corner of CRU...
2: now go to the CRU zip file and find the file reset-all.exe and run it...then reboot and go to step 3:
3: 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)
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/
4: If you don't use SLI patch your drivers with the nvlddmkm-patcher.exe....if you are using SLI patch your drivers using nvlddmkm-patcher-full.exe
5: Go to Nvidia control panel and add your custom resolutions
6: select your custom resolution from Nvidia control panel and test!....using this method you do NOT need to uninstall Nvidia Geforce experience and you will have no conflict...have fun!
