I can choose 144hz option on Nvidia Control panel, but I'm not getting it.

Hi, I recently purchased a 144hz 1440p monitor but i have been using it on HDMI cable (so i've only been getting 100hz).

 

I've decided it's time to stop wasting my glorious thing's potential and went out to buy a DP cable.

 

Everything is so not glorious as I thought it would be! I can choose 144hz option on both Windows and Nvidia control panel, and my monitor's own 'settings' page shows I am indeed receiving 144hz signal, Everything is running supper choppy (actually worse than 60hz for some reason).

 

I've upgraded my nvidia driver, but still with no luck. on 1080p, i can get the 144hz output just fine for some reason. Obviously everything is blurry however.

 

Is there anything I can do?

 

System information are:

 

i5-6600k OC'ed (tested without just in case, same result)

gtx1070 OC'ed (tested without just in case, same result) latest driver off the nvidia website

16GB dual channel ddr3

2x 500gb m.2 nvm

all on Asus Z170-E mobo (updated bios as well, just in case if that was some issue. same result)

 

Thanks!

yes! Only one DP port on monitor, but two on my graphics card. Tried both, but still not working. Thank you for the suggestion!

can u order different brand cable (then return it if problem persists) and try that one so we know its not the faulty cable ?

Cables are plug and play if your nvidia and monitor are set to 144Hz (turn off vsync)

Hmmm I was sure to check the review before I bought it, but it definitely could be. I'll try to get a new one soon if there aren't any other solutions. I thought it was weird that the monitor itself is reporting 144hz but it clearly doesn't. 

 

Thank you!

set your resolution and refresh rate in the NVidia control panel and then follow the link above.

 

It'll tell you your monitors refresh rate.

 

 

Be advised a 1070 will struggle, in game, for 1440p at 144hz.

Every single brand of any product ever will have some faulty parts make it to the customers.

This shows up as 144hz. But... my eyes may be small, but they don't lie! I can tell. When I force the resolution down to 1080p@144hz, it is sooooo amazingly smooth. I won't even game, i'll just scroll up and down in absolute awe. Bump the resolution back to native 1440p? Wow bring me right back to those sweet Y2K memories.
