im having the same monitor as you do i still cant get the refresh rate at 144hertz wont let me over 120 hertz but tbh i would not notice the diffrence. but i paid for it so i expect it to work properly. are you having any problems like these so far.

I wish I can help, but I'm currently using it in HDMI (locked at 60Hz) until I get my 1440p build going. I know there are overclocking options in the screen menu when I was messing with the colors, not sure if you checked that out yet.

I'm just glad more people grabbed this monitor during Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Seeing a ton more builds showcase this monitor and for roughly $350 at that time it was such a great buy.

EDIT: Also, great build +1

Yeah my local best buy was killing with their black friday deals. I think the model I got (S2716DGR) might be slightly different than the regular S2716DG since I can't access the motion blur features and such. Thanks btw.

Nawh, I actually thought this monitor can overclock to 165hz but I found out that it's actually for the 24inch model. First thing I did though was download the latest driver from dell for this monitor as well as my gpu. You should be able to select the 144hz refresh rate option in your display settings or gpu's control panel.
