Having trouble with custom resolution utility and 144Hz monitor!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It appears that when I add custom entries within detailed resolution, they don't show after system reboot. In addition, I tried adding an entry in standard resolution (1080p@144Hz) as a test. It appears that the utility would not accept any values other than 59 and 60, despite the monitor being 144Hz.

Alright, so Vsync locks my games at 144Hz so I assume 144Hz is being utilized by 3d applications. Just wanted to confirm if this is correct or not?

Also, could someone help me on why the software tool is giving me the issues I've described?
Plus, what do I need to know about overclocking the monitor?

Using AMD R9 290X CFX, Windows 8.1, CCC 13.12, ASUS VG278HE
Thank you very much!

If vsync shows 144fps, then that means your monitor is reporting it is capable of 144hz operation. Some Korean models pretend to accept a higher input (125Hz, for example) so vsync shows 125fps, but it ends up skipping frames above 60Hz or a number around there. As this is an Asus monitor, that should not be the issue. You should also be able to tell the difference between 60Hz and 144Hz operation without the slightest bit of doubt.

I'm not overly familiar with the use of CRU as I'm an Nvidia guy. But with CRU I remember you have to be sure you've selected the correct monitor from the dropdown menu before applying settings. Furthermore, you can bypass restarting your computer after adding a resolution if you unplug your dvi cable for a couple seconds and plugging it back in. So you can more quickly test it out and see what works and what doesn't.

Also I wasn't aware that you needed to create a custom resolution for the asus monitor as the driver should report proper 144Hz operation without an issue.

By driver you mean CCC?
Thank you.
