Monitor "Not optimum mode" cannot install os


Hi,

So I decided to build my first Linux desktop and unfortunately things have not been going well. I have tried installing mint 18 and also solus from usb, but after I load the usb and go to install, the screen goes black and a box saying "Not optimum mode recommended mode 1920 x 1080 60 Hz" starts bouncing around. For some reason, kubuntu and opensuse kde worked fine, but I don't like them so that's out of the question.

I've combed the Internet for answers, but they all involve adjusting some setting on the desktop or in some text file, and I can't get past this screen to even install my os.

It's all been very frustrating. Could someone please help me?

Relevant hardware specs:
Samsung S24D300 monitor (connected with hdmi)
Intel x99 chipset
GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card

it might be the hdmi connection.
tried dvi or vga instead?

nomodeset maybe? I assume it has nothing to do with the window manager but the way the driver is being used for video. Can force vesa on boot too. I tend to do that.
