  1. So recently I bought an active adapter for my monitor so that it can output using dual link DVI-D to my monitor as it only supports 144hz over DVI-D. The adapter only lets me reach 120hz, however when i try to set it anything above 60hz, it will give me an error message "Incorrect cable, please use the DVI cable that came with your monitor" I got a 3070 so it doesnt support DVI-D hence why i need an adapter. Is there anyway to fix this?
  2. Just to make sure, will this be a suitable fit? https://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-com-DisplayPort-DVI-Adapter-1920x1200-Black/dp/B004SUO1GM/ref=sr_1_6?crid=9HKK669LWDPO&dchild=1&keywords=displayport%2Bto%2Bdvi%2Bactive&qid=1604664987&s=computers&sprefix=display%2Bport%2Bto%2Bdvi%2Ccomputers%2C160&sr=1-6&th=1 thanks for your help
  3. So I own a BenQ XL2411 monitor that used to run fine on 144hz with my 1060 as it supported dvi, but with my new 3070 i have tried using a DP to DVI cable and even an adapter however I can not get it to run at 144hz, if someone could point me in the direction of an adapter that would work that would be very helpful
  4. get a black screen when I try and do that I have ordered an active adapter, hopefully it works
  5. https://prnt.sc/vdda01 I have tried that, it wont let me select 144hz
  6. I previously had a 1060 6gb which i used to run to my monitor(BenQ XL2411) using a DVI-D connector. However after upgrading to a 3070, I bought a displayport to DVI-D cable but my monitor is still capped at 60hz. Is there anyway i can get around this?
  7. So i was upgrading my system from 8gb to 16gb RAM today and when i went to install it, I realises that my A1 and A2 DIM slots were not working, I have an ASUS B250F Strix motherboard. At this point I read online that maybe my cpu fan was installed too tightly and could be rendering the slots useless. So i removed it and tried, still no luck. Then when I went to install my fan back in and tried to boot after, i could not get a video output, both from my GPU and motherboard. Is there anyway i can possibly fix this or have i fucked my mobo.
