5 days in and I finally found STEP: Core, after looking for guidance from Gopher and GamerPoets.
I've familiarized myself with the tools needed, and am starting to follow STEP: Core.
However, I am unhappy with the results of using ENBoost.
I'm unsure if it's actually beneficial to me, having 896 mb VRam and 4Gigs Ram.
With Vsync enabled, I can hit 30 fps drops too easily, with just 5-10 npcs or looking at Riverwood from the bridge.
I benchmarked in-game and my GPU uses 100% most of the time indoors. 70% outdoors. CPU almost always 30%.
^ Using Skyrim Performance Monitor, which refuses to run while ENBInjector is active. So, I'm not sure of the actual effect of ENBoost.
This is with every possible setting minimized, at 60+fps. Near rivers I can go over 120 fps and get screen flickers... see link.
I am really hating the notion of using Vsync. Can I use an Fps Limiter instead? If so, which one?
Is ENBoost(or VSync) truly required for every1 following STEP: Core? If so, why is it needed exactly?
Please look at my settings in this album I made before giving suggestions. https://imgur.com/a/O9rdK
I've also turned off vsync in the Nvidia control panel and enabled it in enblocal.ini but that didn't do anything.
The only thing that sort of works is the enb fps limiter, which sorta works. If I set it to 60 fps it caps it to 51, although with it off I can get to the high 70s.
It stays at 51fps until I set the fps limiter to 64 fps... really random.
I have a 1080p monitor at a 60hz refresh rate.
What am I not doing right?
I honestly haven't used S.T.E.P. that much outside of a few tweaks.
Considering this issue mostly deals with vsync, which I think should be unrelated to my mods, I hope it's okay if I ask for help here.
ENB: Enhanced Shaders NLA
Modtools: Mod Organizer, Wyre Bash, Loot, TES5Edit
Patchers: DSR, FNIS, and PerMa
PC Specs: gtx 970 (driver version 353.06), i5-4690k, 8 gigs of ram, Windows 7 64 bit
edit 06/12/2015: The issue is still unresolved, so I figured I would show my ini files and nvidia settings in their current state.

Reinstalling Mod Organizer, SKSE, updating my enb version, and making sure there are no comments on the vsync line in enblocal.ini did not solve the issue.
I am curious if I am doing this right and was hoping to find someone with a bit of knowledge who could help. Not too recently I got this monitor :https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236313
It runs at 144 Hertz and I was trying to figure out how this would work in enb. I am not super technical but based on my research this type of number is more or less useless for Skyrim because by default the games fps is capped at 60. Furthermore I cap my fps at 35 because I use a pretty heavy enb (Serenity) and I hate when my frames jump up and down by drastic numbers.
The advice online is that one should set their V-sync (via Nvidia inspector) at 1/3 refresh or 1/4 to prevent the monitor from producing a sort of ghosting effect at lower frames. Basically what I did was turn off enb v-sync, and set to system 1/4 refresh. Other types of advice included setting the monitor to lower Hertz but the screen's colors look completely off when I do this (plus I can only set it as low as 120).
Anyways, wondering if anyone uses a similar monitor and what they did when running Skyrim. Thanks!
