I followed all the instructions. I have the nvidia drivers patched. Disabled "include block extension" and cleared all the custom profiles using NVCP.

But when I set custom resolutions and refresh rates in CRU and restart. It doesn't show up in NVCP.

Thank you

You might try in the windows screen resolution advanced tab instead. Mine did not always show up in the NVCP either.

Yes, i found the problem. I was using a back porch value that was too high. When I lowered it back to the original, the custom resolutions showed up.

Just wondering, what back porch values are you guys using?

Thanks

Please correct me if I'm mistaken, but this "back porch" method is supposed to overclock the monitors without causing it to dim, correct?

If not, then what are the advantages of using this method?

I use lcd reduced setting to achieve a higher hz. I tried the back porch thing and it did nothing for me.. It made 90hz with 500 back porch as dim as 120hz on lcd reduced..

Thought in portrait, not landscape, you get the idea though.

I'd recommend anybody who started overclocking right away spend time at 60. For me it's pretty dramatic. I tried every profile out there and 10 of my own. On all of them there was this indescribable eye fatiguing darkness that went beyond gamma and brightness settings, and reds/oranges/yellows were pretty borked.
