monitor wont run on 144hz

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?

Open NVIDIA control panel, go to the change monitor resolution thing, then select the 144Hz refresh rate option.

I am currently annoyed at Apple for making a stupid incompatibility between their iMac G5 ALS 1.8 GHz and iMac G5 ALS 2 GHz logic board models.

820-1540-A, while the same form factor (and is 95% compatible) does not work interchangeably with 820-1747-A because one has pins and one has pin sockets.

Blarg.

Create a custom resolution then.

You'll have to hit "Apply" without changing anything, then hit "Customize", then change the refresh rate to 144 Hz, then apply it, save it as a custom resolution, then select that.

Boom.

144 Hz refresh rate.

I got 5 more Hz from my 1080p 60Hz panels this way :)

you need an active adapter cable, even with the correct pinout on the dvi adapter it can't necessarily handle the correct signal.

 

It's a pain in the ass to get DVI 144Hz monitors working on modern GPUs without DVI.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
