See if this helps you:
To output 1080p at 120Hz or 144Hz, you need a dual link DVI-D or DisplayPort cable and connect those to your monitor and computer. These standards include support for higher resolutions and refresh rates. HDMI 1.3 or higher can also be used to output 1080p content at 144Hz.

There you go 1080p 144Hz - Which cable do I need?

It is possible OP is still using his old DVI cable, the 144Mhz monitor should include a dual link DVI cable(?).
