Modder ‘SlavicPotato’ has released a brand-new The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim refresh rate unlocker mod that allows for higher framerates on high refresh rate displays.
Tired of Skyrim Special Edition on PC feeling like a 60fps game even though your setup is perfectly capable of running the game at a higher framerate? Despite Skyrim Special Edition supporting uncapped framerates on PC, the refresh rate is locked to 60Hz. This won’t be an issue if you’re playing the game on a 60Hz display, but those lucky enough to play Bethesda’s masterpiece on a high refresh rate display will experience the game at what feels like 60fps.
Luckily, this new refresh rate unlocker will solve this issue for those playing Skyrim on 120Hz/144Hz/240Hz monitors.
This ‘passive’ modification unlocks the game’s in-game refresh rate from 60Hz to 300Hz allowing for much higher refresh rates. The mod can be downloaded through Nexusmods right here. As expected, this mod is only available for the PC version of Skyrim.

Q: Which SSE versions are supported?
A: In theory all are, but only 1.5.97 and 1.5.53 were tested.
Q: I'm seeing errors on startup, what's wrong?
A: Safety checks failed so patching aborted. Either no valid segment was found or multiple possible segments were detected.
Q: Why am I seeing plugin load "Error 1114" in skse64.log?
A: It's normal, ignore it. Technically this isn't a SKSE module, it just takes advantage of the plugin loader system to perform the patch. After patching it intentionally signals SKSE that it failed to load which leads to the plugin being unloaded from memory. Any actual errors will pop up in a message box, otherwise patching was successful.
A general guide to higher framerates:
I recommend you take a look at HavokFix SKSE plugin, it's an easy all-in-one performance-optimized solution which does all the stuff for you.
