Help Overclocking Monitor That Appeared on LTT on Youtube to 144 Hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have the following monitor CG437K, which appeared on Linus Tech Tips on Youtube. He goes over it at about 5:30 time frame in the video below.

Here's the information on my RIG that I'm using to drive this display

 

Motherboard: ASUS X570 ROG Strix e-gaming

RAM: 32 GB 3200 MHz

CPU: AMD 3900X

GPU: Asus TUF 3090

Power Supply: 1000 W

Storage: 1 TB Sargent PCIE 4.0

 

I try and following the video. I have two display port cables going from my 3090 to the monitor. I get 120 Hz at 4k no issues. It shows up as only one monitor now. However in Nvidia control panel I still have 120 Hz

However I noticed that if I go down to 1920x1440p I have the option for 144 Hz.

How do I get 144 Hz at 4K though?

You have to enable the overclock in the monitors settings. Not through the computer but in the monitors menu, there should be an option to enable it on the monitor first then select it on the computer.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

I did. I pushed buttons on the monitor itself, located physically at the bottom of the monitor. I went down to settings, then went to the second page, and turned 144 Hz from off to On. Just like in the video.

 

Is this what you mean by monitors menu?

You use the buttons PHYSICALLY on the monitor.

 

Then you need to create a custom resolution profile through the nVidia drivers (?) for 4K 144 Hz.

Looks like that is what LTT did.

5:40 ~ 5:50

Yes I used the buttons physically located beneath the monitor, behind the screen on the bottom (not software buttons, but physical push buttons). Still couldn't get 144 Hz

 

How do I create the custom profile?
