SOLVED Can't select 144htz on Acer XB270HU @1440p

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I'm unsure what I'm doing wrong. As the title suggests I'm trying to run 144htz at 1440p but it's not working. 

In Nvidia control panel the maximum refresh rate is 120htz and the same is said in device properties in Windows. I tried both the drivers Windows downloaded automatically and drivers from the Acer website. 

Other info you may need. My graphics card is a GTX 680 MSI 4GB. 

I'm running the latest version of Windows and the latest graphics card drivers as of making this thread.

gtx 680 has displayport output and should support 1440p144hz on the dp

I checked the OSD and I can't seem to see any settings relating to refresh rate. I have it set to the extreme and gaming mode things though with ultra low motion blur off and Gsync on
