I'm using this.

Anyone been able to overclock a second monitor? I've done the same settings at the first time, but the new refresh rate doesn't show up in the amd vision software.

Bit the bullet and ordered a pixel perfect xstar from hulustar on Tuesday for $335 shipped.
Fingers crossed it gets here tomorrow smile.gif

Tracking says it just left Singapore, so hopefully its headed straight here from there thumb.gif
Pretty impressed with the shipping etc so far, just hope I get a good monitor!

Don't normally deal with no-name stuff like this but for 2560x1440@120hz its a risk I'm willing to take lol

I understand what you mean with no-name stuff but in this case it's a SAMSUNG panel

Ok some how I screwed up while trying to overclock. I've got a 670GTX and want to check out overclocking. Somehow I've patched my drivers and managed to overclock my dual monitor setup to 96hz on both monitors. But then I wanted to get ride of the test mode thingy and discovered itis harder than I thought. In looking back I realized I could have just used my regular drivers and the catleeap inf to accomplish my task. Will I have to clean then reionstall drivers to accomplish this simpler overclocking???

Still can't get the overclock settings for the second monitor to show up in vision control panel...at a loss lol.

Guys, check what Hilbert from Guru3D says about monitor overclocking in his review of the new GTX 780. It seems that now Nvidia lets us do it in a standard way:

That's pretty cool. Hopefully Amd will follow suit.

For the 100th time--

If you are wondering why games are capping at 60Hz (and you are not using CRU) you need the Catleap 2B INF or set the higher refresh (per game I believe) in NV Inspector.

And I don't see anything "new" in the G3D link above...still talks about the custom profiles that, as far as I know, every NV user is already using (when not CRU to overclock).

I am pretty sure you still need a driver patch ("pixel clock patcher") nor can get rid of the "test mode". Look at the overclocking section of the OP here. I am on AMD though so no personal experience doing this under NV yet.

Dang was looking for a way to overclock without showing test mode. Read and saw there was a way to remove watermark but browser will not allow needed zip to be downloaded. I tried to use the catleap.inf and evga pixel clock. But from what I've seen guess you're right.
