IT WORKSSSSS:

if you have nvidia:

- just use precision x to clock it up. no need to patch or test mode.
- add CRU profile of whatever hz you clocked up to.
- reboot

and let the games begin!!!

so i got an nvidia 780 classified.

when i try to overclock just with the nvidia panel, games cant detect it. when i use cru, when i reboot it goes away from the control panel settings. and now games cant see it either.

any tips? what about the precision x overclocking.. do we have to patch the driver still to use it?

Are you running the latest beta drivers? There are abunch of issues with those drivers and monitors without internal scalers like these.

I recently purchased a qnix from dream-seller, no dead pixels with minimal bleed and it can overclock to 120Hz. My question is since it gets darker at higher refresh rates do the icc color profiles only provide the changes in certain applications or will I see the profiles active in games and on the desktop?

AFAIK color profiles are "general" profiles, not per app. In other words the active profile applies to everything that is displayed, desktop and games. smile.gif

That's really weird I followed the instructions in the OP and when I activate a profile by making it the default the screen flashes too the would be color profile and then back to the original dark screen.

Regardless of how a profile is suppose to work i have had issues with windows color profiles completely being ignored by many games and some applications. I have found calibrating with the driver software to "stick" quite a bit more. As for it not staying on i would try the little app for color profile switching that was posted a few pages back. Also if you search "color profiler" it is pretty easy to find in this thread.

I'm also wondering about this. Does the monitor come with a good cable?

This has been discussed, the stock cable is a pretty good cable and may work better than most. However there has been several reports that monoprice cables 24AWG specifically have the potential to do better but it is known to be very hit or miss. For example i bought 3 monoprice cables to test with 2 of which did not do any better than the stock cable. The last one got me 6hz farther than before(do not hold this as a certain number it will all very from cable to cable and monitor to monitor). To be more precise this was the difference of being at 132hz and then going to 138hz all other variables remaining equal and image quality remained the same. (please note that i got very lucky with the panel i got with its overclocking ability and you may not be able to go this far with any combination of variables).

With this being said if you do get an aftermarket cable to try and improve your overclocking ability or image quality(uniformity) i would recommend getting at least 3 cables to test with maybe more. Given that on monoprice and most reasonable DVI cable retailers these are only about 5-10 dollars it is not an outstanding price for a project and you can always use the cables elsewhere or sell them like i did(considering there like 40-80 dollars in local stores it should be easy to recoup your loses).

Mainly i don't want a few people who had bad luck buying one cable to shy others away from trying it as another potential variable to get to +120hz stable.
