Running 144hz with DVI on Intel Graphics 4000?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there, 

 

A few months ago I bought a RTX 2070 after my R9 280x had died. I had 2 60hz monitors at the time, and decided to buy a BenQ XL2411P, along with borrowing a XL2411Z from my brother. The 2070 has no DVI output, and the XL2411Z has no DisplayPort input so I was stuck with 60hz over HDMI because afaik the XL2411Z doesn't support higher refresh rates than 60 (I would resort to buying an active DisplayPort to DVI converter but since I'm only borrowing this monitor and I'd rather not waste money on something that might not even work I was fine with running 60hz). I wanted to hook my Nintendo Switch up to my XL2411Z over hdmi, so I decided to connect my XL2411Z with a DVI cable to my motherboard (ASRock Z77 Extreme4) that has a i7-3770k in it and was wondering if it's maybe possible to run my XL2411Z at 144hz now since I'm using DVI which I know supports 144hz. I've read that the Intel Graphics 4000 does output 144hz over DVI but Windows only shows me 59hz and 60hz, same thing in the Intel Control Panel. Is it actually possible to run 144hz off off the DVI port on my motherboard, and if so, how do I change my refresh rate to 144hz?

 

Would love to hear from you guys.

Are you using a DVI dual-link cable? If you're not, you're not getting 144Hz ever. It needs the extra 6 pins for the missing bandwidth.

Yup, connections have 1 flat pin followed by 3 rows of 8 pins which is dual link afaik. Could it maybe be driver related? (by the way, I used this exact cable with my R9 280X and got a 144hz signal when I still had the gpu so I doubt its the cable thats messing with stuff)

Wait, no, I'm dumb. You said it's in your board, well...

- Supports DVI with max. resolution up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz

Straight from the manual.

Oh wow, forgot about the manual... Bummer that it doesn't support anything higher than 60. Thanks for your help!
