    That's your problem. Get a display port cable.

    It doesn't on my Pixio 275H, I had to use display port to get the full advantages of it.

    Just get the Display Port then everything settle.

    HDMI had limitation if you buy wrong HDMI cable version.

    Only Look for HDMI cable’s if your gpu don’t have Display Port. If this is the case, then look for at least HDMI 2.0 cable.

    It depends on the GPU and Monitor combo, some monitors work better with DP than HDMI, others work better with DVI, also many GPUs don't support all combinations. So an older video card might easily limit you to 120 Hz over DVI connection and only support higher frequencies and resolutions with DP. OP would be best advised to check GPU and display specs before buying new cable.
