Have you looked through monitor's settings to see if its set to 120Hz by default?

yea, its on 144hz (default)

Is the DP Cable you bought the correct generation that supports 144hz on your resolution? Also if the monitor came with a DP cable try that one and see if it let's you do 144hz. Then you'll know if it is the cable.

it is a 1.2DP cable, this shouldn't be the problem either. conntacting NVIDIA live assistance right now, maybe they know something

Well trying the cable that came with the monitor would be a troubleshooting step. It would help you rule out if it is the cable or not, the one you bought could be falsely advertised or even just a cheap cable. The one that came with the monitor should be the correct one for the monitors resolution and refresh rate I would try it just to be sure it's not a problem with the cable.
