That is stored in the Clover config.plist on your EFI partition at EFI/CLOVER/config.plist.

Here's the documentation for this file:

http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/configuration
http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Configuration/Boot#Arguments

2 ways to edit this file:

Mount your EFI partition: http://www.tonymacx86.com/basics/174321-how-mount-efi-partition.html
Use a plist editor (or a text editor, if you know how to do the formatting) to edit config.plist

or

Use Clover Configurator: http://www.tonymacx86.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=276

You need to make sure that when you open clover configurator, you load your actual clover config file located in your EFI partition.

Then you should enable nvda_drv=1 and manually save your changes in clover configurator and you should be ready to go.

To be even more specific, you want EFI/CLOVER/config.plist on your EFI partition of the drive in question.

thank you all for you help i figure it out, i had to run nvidia drivers and not reboot, run clover configurator uncheck nv_disable=1 and check nvda_drv=1 then reboot and solve video issues

Setting nvda_drv=1 got my EVGA 980 GTX working. Thx!

Although, the Nvidia System Preferences pane still says that my computer is using the "OS X Default Graphics Drivers". Do you know if that's a problem? Or is it just cosmetic?
