I recently bought the AOC G2460PF 144hz Monitor because I saw all the good reviews. I've been troubleshooting for 2 days and am struggling to find a solution.

The issue is I can't set the refresh rate to anything above 60hz. The options are there to set my refresh rate to 144hz on both the Nvidia control panel and the Windows display settings, but every time it displays a black screen and reverts to 60hz. However, with a resolution of 1024x768, I can set the refresh rate to above 60hz (not over 100hz though).

I'm using a DVI Dual link cable and cannot use Display Port, HDMI or VGA due to my graphics card.
The Cable I'm using: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Feet-Cable-Benfei-DVI-D-Ferrites/dp/B07JGT83NV/ref=sr_1_22?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1547661242&sr=1-22&keywords=dual+link+dvi+cable

My Specs:
Intel i5 4690k
Gtx 760 2gb

Things I've tried:
- Reinstalling AOC monitor drivers
- Reinstalling Nvidia drivers
- Using a DVI dual link cable

I've browsed similar questions and found no solutions to my problem. The monitor works perfectly fine, I just can't set the refresh rate to 144hz.

I've done some digging and found a guy who had the same problem as me. It turns out he bought a Dual link DVI cable that had fake pins, so it actually functioned as a single link. I've ordered a new dual link DVI cable from Star Tech and will post the results here tomorrow.

Replaced the Dual link DVI cable with a new one from Star tech. Everything is working fine now!
