    Issue with XF2490H

    timtimmytimtim

      I recently purchased the XF240H for the 144hz to use in FPS gaming. Using the displayport cable, I am only able to get up to 120hz (right click desktop > screen resolution > advanced settings > monitor > refresh rate). Is there anyone able to help me? I tried using CRU to change it to 144hz but then the monitor goes haywire, starts flickering on and off, making popping noises, etc...

      My specs as follows:

      Operating System
      Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
      CPU
      Intel Core i5 4590 @ 3.30GHz 32 °C Haswell 22nm Technology
      RAM
      16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
      Motherboard
      MSI Z97A GAMING 7 (MS-7916) (SOCKET 0) 32 °C
      Graphics
      4096MB ATI AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (Sapphire/PCPartner) 35 °C
      Storage
      465GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB ATA Device (SSD) 29 °C

      Thanks!

      EDIT: I'd also like to mention that at first I thought the DP cable that came with monitor was faulty, so I bought a different cable. Same thing. Then I thought it's the monitor itself so I asked for a replacement. Same thing is happening. Does that mean something is wrong with my GPU? Or something else?
