[SOLVED] not showing 144hz

bought the benq zowie xl2411k 144hz monitor, but it's only allowing me to put it to 120hz?

I'm using a hdmi cord to connect.

This is a limitation of the Radeon R9 GPU. The card only has HDMI 1.4b ports which are able to handle 1080p 144Hz, but only if the manufacturer of the display and GPU both allow it to work.

DisplayPort will allow 144Hz to function. You just need to buy a DP cable.
