    G-Sync on a none G-Sync Monitor Limiting FPS

    I don't have screenshots at the moment and you're correct the option does not appear in nvidia control panel but I'll try replicate it over the weekend by uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and showing you the options in nvidiainspector Well it did with me, v-sync was off so it wasn't that. Here's a screenshot of nvidiainspector with the two options I turned off:

    LTT 3DMark Thread

    Thought I'd throw my results into the mix, not the most powerful pc but it works for me Benchmark: Fire Strike CPU: i7-2600K @ 4.8Ghz GPU: Inno3d GTX 1060 6Gb GPU Core: 2,038Mhz GPU Memory: 2,252Mhz Score: 11746 3DMark Link: https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/38320821
  3. I had a little hunt around the forum to see if this has been brought up before but couldn't find anything so I apologize if it has and I missed it. I have not long got my hands on a cheap GTX 1060 6gb card on ebay, which I'm using with an old Samsung Syncmaster monitor that doesn't have g-sync. As most people likely do I tweaked my settings in the nvidia control panel to try get the most out of my card but ended up being quite disappointed in the results compared to my previous 1050ti. After some googling I found that even though my monitor is not g-sync compatible, because I decided to tweak my settings nvidia enabled g-sync without giving me an option disable it through the control panel, which seemed quite unfair, I didn't even know it had been enabled and if I had not researched a bit my performance would have stayed degraded. On one post somewhere the poster advised to download a little application called NvidiaInspector and disable it through that. After doing this I noticed a noticeable increase in fps, up to +15/20fps so far! If Nvidia want people to have the best performance they can get for their money why the hell would they enable g-sync almost by default even for non g-sync monitors? Seems stupid to me. Not sure if this happens with all nvidia g-sync cards or not but if it does then those of us that are not using compatible monitors may want to double check if it has been enabled and if it has, disable it until we can get the hardware to support it. PS. Not sure if I can post a link to NvidiaInspector or not so I'll err on the side of caution and let folks who want it google for it instead.

    Case fans, 120mm v 1400mm (Solved)

    More to cut down on noise, the fans I have just now are all mismatched and consist of a couple of old noctua cpu cooler fans, the wee fans that came with the case and a couple of new corsair ML 140mm fans that will be staying.

    Case fans, 120mm v 1400mm (Solved)

    Thank you I use an old nh-d14 with new pwm noctua redux fans, a 120 + 140, that was an upgrade from a cooler master 212 and I was super surprised at the cooling improvement

    Case fans, 120mm v 1400mm (Solved)

    I don't have to most powerful machine but depending on what's happening temps rarely go above 70-75 on my cpu cores (i7-2600k oc to 4.7ghz, I did have 4.8 but it kept hitting 1.4v and I didn't like that). My GPU (which is a new addition) I think is boosting temps a bit as well. Here's what Hardware Monitor says and this is just light gaming and blender running (not rendering) https://prnt.sc/oo5ska The second shot is under load with cinebench https://prnt.sc/oo5uso

    Case fans, 120mm v 1400mm (Solved)

    Thanks guys I actually thought 2 140s would have been better, shows how much I've learned lol. How about exhaust? I have space for 2 140s in the top plus a 120 in the back or 3 120s top and back? I don't have water cooling, I like old school air cooling. Btw, I actually don't mind the brown, it's kinda retro and as soon as you see those colours you know it's a damn good fan lol
  9. Ok guys my case (Fractal Design Define C) can have either 3 x120mm or 2 x 140mm fans in the front, just now I have a couple of 140mm corsair fans in there but I want to change to either noctua or bequiet, was just wondering would 3 120mms or 2 x 140mms be better?
