My issue could it be due to Setting frame render ahead to 1 or 2 in nvidia control panel or game?

Why is my default hertz is 59Hz and not 60Hz

Debating whether or not to buy one. I found one for $250 from a private seller. Can I even OC it with my 7970 or is this a LightBoost-exclusive luxury? I would be going from three Samsung 23" 1080p monitors to one of these 1440p monitors.

No this is not going to cause what you are seeing. Frame rendering does handle parts of the processing between GPU and CPU but you are only going to see a difference in framerate and motion judder. I have mine set to 1 for shadowrun and never have see what you are explaining. Many other games i have tried 1 for better mouse response but still have never seen that.

I've a QNIX that runs happily at 120hz. All good up until now on a GTX 670.

However I have recently upgraded to SLI and am having a minor (annoying) issue where I cannot select the overclocked refresh on BF3.

This is my process so far:
Removed the drivers and reset CRU.
Rebooted.
Reinstalled drivers and patched.
Rebooted.
Recreated the known good settings in CRU, unticked the option and set 120hz as the first profile.
Rebooted.
Applied custom colour profile.

SLI is not yet enabled. I can see 120hz in Nvidia CP and in windows screen settings. If I load BF3 up now I can select the native res @ 120hz, although of course one GPU is running at 0%.

I closed BF3 and enabled SLI. I can still see the option of 120hz on NCP and WSS and indeed can select the option in BF3.

However, having shut down over night, I can no longer see the option for 120hz in WSS - although it does appear in NCP. It appears that BF3 looks for the refresh rate in WSS and so cannot display it - I can only pick 59.9hz.

So, do I need to complete the steps in a different order? Perhaps set SLI up before patching the drivers?

I have tried placing the system in test mode as well, this made no difference.

Thanks

This sounds like you monitor driver is either messed up or there is another comparable driver installed for your monitor and after a reboot you are loosing profile association. This is when the monitor is registered as a different name, like when moving the monitor from one port to another you do not get to save your CRU settings as it is read as a "new" monitor.

You might try going into the device manager and see what your monitor is showing up as. Also you might want to try removing your monitors driver by uninstalling it their and reinstalling, And if it shows up as "generic display device" that could be part of the problem. Heck using the catleap driver could help too but if you have already it could be the catleap driver mixing bad with the old driver installed.

Hello everyone, just got my monitor yesterday and have 1 question about 120hz biggrin.gif

In the picture below, my NVIDIA control panel says the monitor is currently running at 120hz but on the windows panel it only gives the options of 59hz and 60hz. Is it suppose to be like this? How can I fix this, and how do I know if it actually is running at 120hz?thumb.gif

Just played a round in battlefield 3. no artifacts so far. maybe because my cards is not being used that much. BF3 is the one game that will strain your card in such a way that it will crash me thinks. I'm getting green dots sometimes when i was running at 85Hz. remember 85Hz has more strain on GPU than 60HZ. What can happen when you overclock your monitor to far?

I'm assuming you've done this, but first make sure you patched the drivers with this. If you create a custom resolution and refresh with the nVidia control panel, it is not actually a low-level system resolution. You can create a low level built-in refresh rate using this. Be sure to uncheck "Include extension block."

That is really weird and cannot be right. I would try powerstrip's horizontal line test to see if you are indeed running at 120hz or 60hz. One has to be wrong LOL.

Does anyone know how to change the color/contrast for games? I've got it great for desktop through nvidia control panel but games are terrible!!
