Be sure to uncheck "Include extension block."

Yes I have done all those, and just did it again, the same thing is showing. I tested with the http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping and it shows that I have 120fps, (took a picture with a camera and all blocks are next to each other also) So I am not sure why it is doing this to me thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

How exactly do I use this program? What and where should I be looking? :S

Did you reboot after making changes in CRU? Also, did you remove all the custom nVidia resolutions? You should only be using CRU at this point. The nVidia control panel is really only good for finding your maximum refresh during testing.

Do you have to reboot for the color profiles to take effect?

Yes I rebooted after making chances with the CRU. I never made any custom nvidia resolutions o__o. The steps I took were, installing the nvidia patcher, install the CRU, create copy and past the current resolution with 120hz and uncheck "include extension block" -> then restarted and checked


When I installed the powerstrip program I found this rolleyes.gif

Thanks for all your quick replies thumb.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





This doesn't directly address your question but you can also overclock your monitor using EVGA Precision X. You don't have to use the patcher etc. Just move the slider in Precision X to 120Hz and that's it.

Thanks coel! I just downloaded and checked, and it is already 120hz so I guess it is actually 120:thumb: Been trying to play some games and haven't seen any pixels or artifacting yet. Hope it stays this way biggrin.gif

Do it omg just do it. Your 7970 is a fine match all around...

Hey guys I just wanted to confirm something with regard to X-STAR DP2710.

Does the stem come out of monitor or I need to take of the panel to take it off?
also, can I just pop in a cable from my old monitor into a power brick instead of using the converter adapter?

You need to unscrew a few screws at the bottom of the monitor. Tutorial here (different monitor, same stand):

Yes you can use a generic power supply or monitor power cord.
