The original post has instructions and they are repeated throughout the thread.
Here's instructions that I compiled from the thread to help me (assuming you have an Nvidia GPU):
To overclock the Hz, what you are doing is adding a profile to your Nvidia drivers where you can select 96Hz from a dropdown (whereas normally it would not be possible).
Here are step-by-step instructions:1)
Download the Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) and the Nvidia Pixel Clock Patcher, both available from this link:
You can save them anywhere, they don't have to be on your C: to run them.2)
Go into the pixel clock patcher folder and run nvlddmkm-patcher.exe. You only need to run the full patcher with 5xx series GPUs or earlier or if you have SLI. If you have a 6-series GPU or later or you're not running SLI you can just run the normal patcher. Then REBOOT.3)
After reboot go into the CRU folder and run CRU.
- In the dropdown at the top make sure the Qnix is selected. Qnix should be the active monitor.
- Highlight the resolution listed under "Detailed resolutions."
- Hit the "Edit" button below the box. This will pop up a new window.
- In the new window hit "Copy." Then hit "OK" to close the window.
- Hit the button "Add" under the "Detailed resolutions" box. This will pop up a new window. Hit "Paste" to populate the screen. Then go down to the area in this screen that says "Refresh rate:" and change it from whatever it is (59.5 or 60.0) to 96. Then hit "OK" to close the window.
- Move the new custom resolution that you created to the top of the list of resolutions under "Detailed resolutions."
- Make sure that "Include extension block" is unchecked.
- Hit OK and CRU will add this new "custom resolution" to your Nvidia drivers.
Once you're rebooted, right click on your desktop (or however you want to do it) to go to NVIDIA Control Panel.
- Go to "Change resolution"
- Under PC you should see Qnix listed as 2560 x 1440 (native). It should be highlighted.
- CRU (despite the name, Custom Resolution Utility) does not add "custom resolutions" to NVIDIA Control Panel. It makes your drivers think that whatever resolutions you created are native.
- There's a dropdown next to the monitor labeled "Refresh rate:" You should be able to select 96Hz from this dropdown now.
I use 96Hz for gaming and keep it at 60Hz the rest of the time.
You can adjust the Hz to whatever you want. I use 96. You can try for 120 but you'll probably need to do some tweaking in CRU. To do those tweaks search the thread for "front porch." Spartan F8 has gone over these tweaks extensively.Edited by coelacanth - 9/9/13 at 12:54pm
