if you want more info on the why and how look up Time Stamp Counter and PM Timer

but forcing win7 to use the PM Timer only will allow you to run skyrim with "iPresentInterval = 0" without the funky side effects

Dont do this blindly go and read about it first a good round up of info can be found here

under the HPET Tweak! section

windows tweak is as follows

Cmd run as admin

bcdedit /set useplatformclock true

Log off/reboot

As i said go read about it FIRST,if you dont and do it blindly & it ****s up your system dont blame me
I don't get why so many people want vsync off. If it's smoothness and frame rate consistence you're worried about, just force triple buffering and call it a day (that's what I did). Personally, I can't stand the tearing in games with vsync off.
