I heard otherwise :/

The file comes with 2 patches, since I run SLI, I used the full version and deleted the other, so now I cant make a mistake.

"The patch is still needed in three cases:

1. SLI needs the full patch to work properly beyond 400 MHz pixel clock.
2. Some 500-series cards are limited to 400 MHz without the full patch. 600-series and newer cards are not limited.
3. CRU needs the regular patch to add resolutions beyond 330 MHz pixel clock. The regular patch won't break HDCP.



600-series and newer cards without SLI don't need the patch when using the NVIDIA control panel or the EVGA pixel clock feature."

So i was right Dubbed and if you are running only 96hz as i think you are and your card is is a 600 or newer card which i think it is ... if so you are don't need the patch at all if you are using NVCP.....you have a GTX670 yes?

Nice review, Totally Dubbed!

Just two remarks. 96Hz being a multiple of 24 is useful only for people who would like to run 96Hz 24/7 on their monitors. Given the side effects of overclocking: gamma shift, uniformity, and most importantly image retention, although less serious at 96Hz than at 110Hz+, some might prefer to run at 60Hz on the Desktop instead, and 96Hz+ in games. If you are watching a 24FPS movie, fullscreen, it would be preferable to use 72Hz instead, as it's closer to 60Hz and thus has less overclocking side effects than 96Hz. 72Hz is a bog-standard overclock that works on almost all monitors that don't skip frames directly above 60Hz yet don't overclock beyond 70-80Hz or so (branded monitors).

The other remark is that 24FPS videos are really 23.976FPS and so 72Hz should really be 71.928Hz, and 96Hz should really be 95.904Hz. 60Hz is really 59.94Hz so that 3:2 pulldown still works precisely with 23.976FPS content, as 23.976 * 2.5 = 59.94Hz sharp. You might find that 60Hz default was 59.95Hz or 60Hz; if so, set that to 59.94Hz for video.

That means, I don't need it also, if I am understanding it correctly.

GTX680 actually smile.gif!

But there's nothing wrong with being "safe than sorry" with the patch though?
I mean if you don't use it / recommend it - then you might not OC or run into problems.
However if you use it, there's 0 adverse effects towards it....am I right? If so - then I don't have to worry about the OC guide I created via video.
The DRIVER sure made a difference though - without it the OC wouldn't stick / apply itself to games.

Just restored mine, so no patch being used, running at 96hz still. thumb.gif

Yes that's right. With a single 670 using the NVCP method to OC, you don't need either patcher.

Basically for that setup all you need to do is:

1) Install the Qnix driver
2) OC with NVCP

I always use the full patcher because I have SLI.

I think 96Hz clocks in at around 383MHz pixel clock, so you really only need the full patcher in SLI if you're going to go with 100+Hz (it sounds like from reading what ToastyX wrote there).
