Lowest refresh rate monitor caps all other monitors

I have an OMEN HP 144hz monitor that I use as my display and a really cheap 60hz dell monitor that I use as my secondary. But the issue is that the 60hz dell monitor seems to be capping the hz of my main display. Whenever I disable the dell monitor my main display is able to display at 144hz but not when it's enabled. Has anyone else had this issue before and does anyone know how to fix it?

Several people, and there are threads on the forum, e.g.

Depends on your hardware and software configuration (which you didn't include even though there was a request to include it). Possibly it will never work.


That's a limitation with X11. I've tried this with success ( Nvidia, KWin ) 433094 – No way to disable tearing prevention
