I have an RTX 2070 and 3x1080p monitors which have VGA and HDMI connectors. One monitor is plugged directly into the HDMI port of the card while the other 2 are using DP->HDMI converters for the connection.
I can set the frequency of the direct HDMI monitor to 75Hz while I can’t set it on the DP->HDMI ones.
When I was using Windows I was able to set the frequency on all of the monitors (physically the same connection) to 75Hz. Using nouveau drivers I can set the frequency, the only issue is the nvidia proprietary driver which doesn’t want to run like that.
I don’t have an option for 75Hz on the DP->HDMI ones and when I try to force it with xrandr I get an issue:

I also tried to get the edid from my main monitor, read the modeline and add it to the other monitors but I’m getting the same issue. Do I somehow have to load the edid from the HDMI monitor to the display port ones? And if yes, how as I didn’t manage to find a concrete answer. All monitors show as
AOC 27BC (all of them ARE the same model).
