If it's listed as one display in strobelight-setup.exe, then reset (uninstall) that display and disable Surround first before installing the refresh rates.

What do you mean by reset? Are the refresh rates listed in the Windows screen resolution settings? Does it still reset if you uninstall GeForce Experience?

The NVIDIA control panel doesn't use EDID overrides. You need to add the custom resolutions individually for each monitor.

Does it work consistently on the desktop?

CRU uses EDID overrides like strobelight-setup.exe does, so that won't make a difference. If you're going to add the refresh rates manually using the NVIDIA control panel, reset (uninstall) the displays first with strobelight-setup.exe and reboot, or run the reset-all.exe that comes with CRU and reboot to remove all EDID overrides.

You're not supposed to add resolutions like that. There's no way to make that work with LightBoost. Each monitor needs to be set up individually. Disable Surround before adding the custom resolutions.
