Can't get more than 60hz

I have a pretty decent gaming computer, according to iammykl.


However, I can't seem to get more than 60hz refresh rate.


I have a gtx 1070 graphics card, going to a TCL 55S405 4k 120hz capable monitor, connected with a gold plated 4k HDMI 2.0 cable. I went into nVidia Control Panel and could not, with any resolution that I selected, get more than 60hz in the refresh rate drop down so I went back to 3840X2160 native resolution.


I am exploring the option of a new monitor. I am a gamer, I live stream. I play League of Legends, First and Third person shooters, World of Warcraft, Diablo 3, Fallout 76, GTA V.... those type of games. 


Any input or new monitor suggestions? Less than $400. I love my visuals so I really don't want to take away from that, hence the 4k monitor I currently have.

The problem is, HDMI is ultimately a consumer interface designed for TVs.


For gaming at higher refresh rates, use DisplayPort or Dual-Link DVI instead.
