Hello, i got a 165hz HP Omen 27" screen with G-sync, it says from where i bought it that it's a 165hz display but in my settings i can only chose up to 144hz.
Does it use 165hz automatically but it's hidden or why can't i chose 165 specifically as i can chose 60, 85, 144 etc?

If i want to use G-sync, could i cap my FPS at 165 instead of 144 without changing any settings?

Here is a screenshot of my nvidia controllpanel, you'll see what i mean:

From my experience, there should be an option in the monitor settings for overclock (Or something similar) ... click through all the options and once you have found it you should be able to change it to 165hz from the nvidia control panel.
