Dear AMD community, i need help with something. I dont find this problem as a very serious problem but its kinda annoying. I have a AOC G2460PF monitor that can reach up to 144hz, but the displayport doesnt work so im using a high-speed HDMI cable to DVI-D Dual Link and i can reach to 120hz with that. Im happy with that, but its that one problem i cant really solve is...

When im entering the monitor settings to change my refreshrate back to 120hz, but i cant because the maximum is 60hz... But!

There is a solution to fix this by disconnect the HDMI cable from the graphics card and plug it in again, doesnt work all the time but after some attempts it works, but the problem comes back after booting the PC again. I dont want this to keep happening and i want to have an good experience without struggling with this...
