I have mine overclocked to 120Hz in Nvidia control panel. I didn't do any of the patching steps, just normally overclocked it. I know it works for the desktop and video, but I want to know if it stays overclocked in games. Anyone know?

Can anyone help me out here? smile.gif

I use dispcalGUI: http://dispcalgui.hoech.net/

Edit: you'll need to install argyllcms: http://argyllcms.com/downloadwin.html and then point dispcalGUI to the argyll binaries.
dispcalGUI has a very good installation guide on their website, just follow that.

That is not it and i did find this one during my search. The other app was much more low profile/overhead. I don't even think i had to install it.

I really just want to be able to hot swap between ICC and ICM profiles. It was something like "ICC display profiler" or something but i can't find it to save my life.

Try this:
Install all the ICC profiles you want under recognisable names.
Control Panel>Color Management
Add all the profiles you want. To swap between them select the one you want then click "Set as Default Profile"

No app required at all thumb.gif


Edit: found the app you were after: http://www.xrite.com/product_overview.aspx?ID=757&Action=support&SoftwareID=539

Profiles still need to be installed though.

Okay, so I went ahead and did the patching and what not from the TUT, but I saw no difference so I reverted it back to the Nvidia CP OC.

So do the majority of you guys not experience IR/ Burn-in? I don't see how I can run higher frame rates when I burn in in only 20 minutes.

There has been some of us who experienced burn in ofter and then after a while the burn in was not as bad so there may be a time factor here. Also you are just setting it to 120hz in the NVCP which does not optimize the timings at all. I was able to get WAY further in overclocking when i used at least CRU with LCD reduced and then even farther when using custom timings. If you stick with stock it is likely it puts higher strain on the monitor. This is apparent from the resulting pixel clock. With stock timings in the NVCP @120hz i believe it is around 500mhz. This pushes the PCB and cable hard. If you optimize the settings i have gotten it as low as 450mhz. That 50mhz is a big difference in terms of the strain the overclock puts on the display process. This is overclocking it is going to take some effort and reading. There is always the possibility your monitor is not a good overclocker but you need to play around before confirming that. Just like overclocking a CPU some will be more stable than others.

EDIT: This also can be related to having the brightness too high @ overclock speeds. General consensus has been about 12 clicks from "all the way down" (which is also the level most of our ICC color profiles are set at)

I don't know about majority but definitely not everyone experiences burn-in, it depends on the panel quality which I think vary between B+ and A- quality. I for example get no burn-in at any refresh rate and I remember way back in the thread that someone was only noticing the burn-in when they were looking at a full brown colored screen, but I guess each panel gets some weird symptoms whether it be something as easily fixable as backlight bleed or something as bad as uniformity problems that caused Samsung to bin the panels but it always comes down to luck with these panels which isn't a good thing but if you do get a really good one its very rewarding especially for the price.

Edit: I have also read way back in the thread that the burn-in can get better over time but I personally cant attest to that as I never had any problems from the start.
