    Umm, wtf? You are both clearly out of your depth.

    1.) Why would GreatD need an Intel integrated graphics driver when he just said his is disabled?

    2.) For me, current stock Intel graphics drivers will allow OCs now, so it isn't 100% necessary to use those older modded drivers, but that's besides the point here.

    3.) GreatD has already been told (a few posts up) to perform the OC directly from his NVIDIA control panel- it's not that hard.

    4.) There is no guarantee you will hit 90+Hz successfully.

    Wow brother you need to relax, I misread his post and thought it said he had Optimus. It was pretty early in the morning well before I had my coffee. Seriously there is no need to be rude and most don't tolerate that type of nonsense around here. Thanks for the correction though!

    Apologies to you. Sorry, it was early indeed. There's just something about ______ asking for help that refuse to take the advice of others who already set them straight that pisses me off. We can only help ______ people so much when they aren't willing to actually listen to what others are telling them in order to solve their problem.

    No f***s were given in the writing of this post. That's just who I am and I'm not changing any time soon. I think the vast majority of the world are f***ing idiots who are just too stupid for their own good- but that's another conversation entirely. Good day.

    Thank you sir. I saw it on my Nvidia Control Panel. Much appreciated.

    That means its unstable OC, I reckon 61-63Hz would be an ideal choice for testing.

    Success: Surface Laptop 2017 i5 4GB (13.5", 2256x1504, Kabylake) MEI96A2 - VVX14T092N00
    60Hz -> 75 Hz [LCD reduced, stable]

    Anything above creates artifacts (popping black horizontal lines and colourful vertical lines). I also tested 96 Hz with some artifacts but still was able to experience the fluidity. Anything above created more heavy artifacts taking over the whole screen. Played a little around in CRU with LCD reduced etc, no changes in the result. Used a 3d vision monitor for a year, I am missing the 120hz fluidity with my other devices. The 75Hz is noticeably better compared to the 60Hz, so I will keep it, 90Hz was a little bit more satisfying but it still is missing the subjectively infinite fluid animations of +120Hz. I am waiting for an edge to edge ultrabook (like the Huawei Matebook X Pro) with a high refresh rate. notebooks like the Aero 15X (144Hz) still look bulky to me, and I have no use for the specs of a gaming device.

    nah, it didn't work, and when i installed this version again (i reverted it back on stable) my realtek lan driver just disappeared. tried to install it again, not working.

    edit: it came back after a couple of reboots, strange lol.

    Disable hybrid shutdown on win 10 to get rid off Win 10 amnesia.
