DVI question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Currently running a single link DVI cable to my 60hz 1080P LED which is currently OC'd to 66hz. Just wondering if I moved to a dual link DVI cable, if that was a possible limitation of me hitting 66hz on my monitor. I am thinking no, but I gotta ask. biggrin.gif

Looks like a dual link is the key. biggrin.gif

I recommend the Tripp Lite DL-DVI-D 10' cable from Newegg or Amazon. It is the best constructed DVI cable I've owned, and I have a lot of them. The shielding is very, very well done, has very high quality ferrite beads at both ends, and other cables just look diminutive in size in comparison. The only other one that's close is the lower Guage Monoprice one, but I find that the Tripp Lite isn't nearly as difficult to bend.

Just this cable allowed me to overclock a Dell P2212 to 75hz where no other cable would.

Good that you got a good cable. Monoprice is very good quality. I have used their DVI-D, HDMI, USB, SATA III, SAS and Network cables and have found them to usually be of higher quaility than the much high priced cables and they all work good. like he said the Monoprice one is a little stiff.
