@Aeacus, With the newer Nvidia driver does it allow any kind of adaptive sync with that new monitor & 1060?
Under the "Nvidia Control panel -> Manage 3D settings -> Global Settings -> Vertical sync", i have the default "Use the 3D application setting" option selected. Other options are: Off, On, Adaptive, Adaptive (half refresh rate), Fast.

Since i got my monitor yesterday, i haven't tested it in games. Took me some time to get it running 144 Hz instead of stock 60 Hz.
When i have time, i can test it out but don't expect me to tell a difference since almost all my life, i've used 60 Hz TN panel monitor. 😁

So, i made several runs in Unigine Heaven benchmark with different settings and i tell right away that i couldn't see any screen tearing. It could be that my eye isn't trained to see screen tearing since i don't play fast-paced games almost at all. Or it's because Unigine Heaven, which is slow-paced benchmark. Faster-paced benchmark (e.g in GTA V) might show the screen tearing better but i don't have that game.

For Unigine Heaven, i used lowest settings @ 1080p fullscreen to get FPS high enough for testing.

Vertical sync settings used:
Off - no FPS cap and FPS averaged 220 with peak about 360. A lot of stuttering.
Fast - FPS averaged around 200 with peak about 240. Some stuttering.
On - FPS capped to 144 max. Slight stuttering.
Adaptive - FPS capped to 144 max. Very little stuttering.
Adaptive (half rate) - FPS capped to 72 max. No stuttering.

So, to answer your question: Yes, newer Nvidia drivers do allow the usage of Adaptive Vsync with my 144 Hz MSI monitor and GTX 1060.

Ooh, I like that RGB mousepad. I may have to buy one to complete my setup. I finally bit the bullet and ordered the Kraken X62 this week. I'll be buying my new GPU shortly.
Since i have Corsair KB, mouse and headset, all capable for RGB; i also bought RGB capable Corsair mouse pad and headset stand to complete the eyecandy setup. :sol:

My mouse pad is MM800 RGB Polaris,

And there's also a cloth version of MM800 RGB Polaris,

Yeah I may have to buy one of those at some point. I really want to get some of the new Dominator Platinum too once I get my X62 up and running.

Far Cry 5 integrates with the Corsair iCue software and turns my keyboard, mouse and mousepad into a waving American flag among other cool effects. Pretty neat. First game I've played that can talk to all my Corsair stuff.
Diablo 3 does this as well. Turns the keyboard red and skills turn orange when they are useable again. Legendary drops make the whole keyboard pulse a orange wave and Set legendary do the same but green instead (I only have a K95)
