It seems obvious now in retrospect but this didn't ...

try to go to bios and increase the amount of ram the internal graphics can stole from your main ram. I had similar problem with getting 4k@60hz to work with intel internal graphics and only after I update kernel to 3.17 it started to work. It still does not work as default but I have to always change refresh rate to 60hz.
