    Soo i needed a second monitor. picked up an acer sa240y. its decent, ips, freesync, cheap and cheerful

    However i cant actually get it to do 75 hz out the box. Or freesync. I only get the option of 60hz.

    I have done a little googling. From what i can see its Hdmi 2.0 (which is the only input other than vga)

    tried it direct with hdmi , tried it with dp adapter to hdmi . Tried a manual overclock in the nvidia settings, black screened. Oddly enough my second monitor which is an ultra wide overclocked above its rated 60 to 75 which was a surprise and nice lol .

    According to the monitor settings freesync is enabled. There seem to be no gync options showing, and im not sure what else to try honestly.

    gpu = https://www.evga.com/products/specs/gpu.aspx?pn=81e0fb30-3f35-469c-b0c5-548cf1de28d7
    monitor = https://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/model/UM.QS0EE.A01

    Any ideas fellas. The extra 15hz isnt much, but id like both monitors running the same, and be nice to know adaptive framerate works

    This talks about an option in nvidia control panel, worth a look?
