  • You did not state the model of the external monitor.

    1920 x 1080 144Hz requires 346 MHz pixel clock (using CVT-RB timing, 8bpc color). That is beyond the 165 MHz max of Single Link DVI. Dual Link DVI can do 330 MHz. Maybe your external monitor uses smaller blanking periods than the CVT-RB timing calls for. This information may be in the monitor's EDID. Apple has a Mini DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI adapter. It requires a USB port for extra power.
