You haven't given me the information I asked for, and you haven't been clear about what you've done and what happens.

Can you describe what you mean by that? Where does that happen?
With strobelight-setup.exe, what are the monitors listed as with and without Surround? If it's listed as one monitor with Surround, disable Surround first and install the refresh rates on the "(3 active)" monitors. Do not install refresh rates on the NV Surround monitor. Do not add custom resolutions to the NVIDIA control panel at the same time. What happens if you enable Surround with this configuration? What do you mean when you say it's buggy and resets? Are the installed refresh rates available in the Windows screen resolution settings when it resets? Does it still reset if you remove GeForce Experience? If NVIDIA fixed EDID overrides like they said, then this configuration should work. I prefer this method because EDID overrides can control what refresh rates are available in games, and this method is needed to add refresh rates with AMD/ATI cards.

Is this with the NVIDIA control panel method? If it works consistently on the desktop, then LightBoost should work in games at 120 Hz. Are the games using the correct refresh rate? Check the NVIDIA control panel under "Manage 3D settings" and make sure "Preferred refresh rate" is set to "Application controlled" and not "Highest available" so it doesn't try to force 121/144 Hz.

I don't know. Flashing the EDID is risky, and DDC is already unreliable, so it could corrupt the EDID if there are communication problems. Modifying the monitor is also risky. This should be doable with just EDID overrides or custom resolutions.

Good idea with the refresh rate setting. I'll test that when I get home.
