dmesg output when using DP

I recently built a new machine (specs below), but I'm having trouble using the
display port connector with my old monitor (BenQ XL2420G) - I get the following
EDID error:

[drm:dc_link_detect [amdgpu]] *ERROR* No EDID read.

Following instructions to manually use an EDID appears to do nothing
(https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/kernel_mode_setting). I generated an EDID
with the "read-edid" package after modprobe-ing i2c-dev and HDMI connected, as
well as my old machine's nvidia card via "acquire EDID" in nvidia-settings.

I'm not sure how quirky other G-Sync or high-refresh-rate monitors are, but
this one *only* allows a 144 Hz refresh rate with display port. However, using
HDMI, everything appears to be fine. My Windows partition in the same machine
appears quite happy to use DP at 144 Hz, so I'm particularly baffled as to why
linux is struggling. After scouring the internet, it appears no one else has
the same issue, so it is possible that this monitor is simply not playing

I have supplied my lspci output, as well as dmesg outputs with "drm.debug=0x1e
log_buf_len=4M" for both DP and HDMI connected. I am running up-to-date
archlinux, using linux-firmware from the testing repo (which should just be
neatly providing the navi firmware in a non-AUR package) and a bunch of
packages from the mesa-git repo. My pacman -Q is also attached.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks in advance.
