Looks great other than a little backlight bleed.
For the overclocking tutorial I opened and ran the Nvidia Pixel Clock Patecher. It showed a bunch of stuff and said path? So i clicked patch and then ran test mode, but no test mode logo showed up or anything. I restarted, changed Nvidia control panel settings and all, and it I believe its running at 96hz. Any way to check? Does patching the Nvidia card do anything bad to the card or the system? Can it ever? If it can't why does it require a "patch". One last thing: Should I just leave it at 96hz? If not is there a way I can easily switch from 96 to 60 because as it stands it seems like a I have to switch in the OCer, NVCP and Windows.
This has been massively covered in this forum so here is a quick summary.
1. The patch is asking where your driver or system file is that it needs to patch. Reading more on teh patch itself will help you. I common reason for this is the difference from 32 and 63 bit OS paths
2. The reason test mode did not show up is because you did not do it right(hence your first question)
3. It may very likely be running at 96hz because you can usually get to about 108hz without it since you are under the frequency limit.
4. yes there is a way to check.....refreshrate multitool or powerstrip(please read how to make these work rather than just asking they are VERY easy to use and see if it is working)
5. No it does not do anything "bad" of sorts. It mainly just removes a limit like the multiplier being unlocked on a CPU(i guess you could sy it allows YOU to do things that could be BAD without reading and knowing what you are doing)
6. Yes it can "ever hece the last questions answer.
7. it requires a patch because there is limit(also like a multiplier being locked on a CPU)
8. yes you can leave it at 96hz as that frequency has not shown any recorded bad side effects this far.
9. you can easily change it in the resolution settings i am not sure how you are seeing that it makes you change it in the "OCer" just go to the NVCP or windows resolution tool and change
Take a look over this forum and you will find the info i have provided and MUCH more detail.
