I'm having exactly the same problem - Intel HD 4600 on Dell U2713HM via HDMI doesn't offer resolutions higher than 1080p.
My mainboard is a Gigabyte H87N-WIFI, which clearly specifies 4K resolution via HDMI (but not DVI). The display features HDMI 1.4, which should enable higher resolutions.Yet I'm limited to 1080p.
Where is the custom resolution option in the Windows 8 driver panel? I saw it mentioned several times on other forums, but it doesn't seem to be there on the current driver version.
You can have mine. I have the problem too, but I can set the resolution to 2560x1440 in linux

Just to clear things up: Meanwhile I found the solution: The Intel HD4600 isn't the issue, for all I know it can output 4K just fine via HDMi (but not via DVI). However the Dell U2713HM will only accept resolutions of up to 1080p via HDMi, for larger resolutions like the native 2560 x 1440 you'll need to use DVI or DisplayPort. This is of course a problem with the output specifications of my mini ITX Board, which is why I went for a small dedicated Geforce GPU which gives me 2560 x 1440 via DVI just fine. It's kind of a sad state though - my Gigabyte board has 2 HDMI and 1 DVI out and all of them are useless - at least with this very Dell display. And don't bother with Pre-Haswell boards either, I was shocked to learn that larger than 1080p is quite a new thing for onboard GPUs.
THat said be sure to double check your display and mainboard specifications. Or if it's too late already, buy a cheap dedicated GPU.
For anyone who hasn't seen this other thread yet, it explains how to set custom resolutions on the latest Intel HD graphics hardware:
Some users in another thread on Dell forums -- U3014; problems getting full performance through HDMI - Monitors Forum - Peripherals - Dell Community reported success via HDMI using a Dell U3014 @ 2560x1600, 16 bit, 60Hz, 2560x1600, 32 bit, 24Hz, 2560x1600, 32 bit, 36Hz, 2560x1600 32bit 48Hz, and even 2560x1600, 32 bit, 60Hz with CVT Reduced Blank (CVT-RB) timing. See the thread for details.
It refuses to work on my machine as well - I have a Z87 mobo with i7-4770K and it is connected with a DVI-D cable to my Dell U2713HM, and when I try vacaloca's linked manual configuration using 2560x1440 @60Hz + 8bits/underscan 0%/timing GTF, the driver pops up a box saying:
Intel(R) HD Graphics Control Panel
The custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity.
I tried varying the color depth (there is no 24-bit listed?) and the timing dropdown with nothing working. If I reduce the refresh to 30Hz with 16-bit color it lets me add the custom resolution, but even that took... I don't know: waiting? twiddling lots of controls? Several minutes before it showed up as an option.
This is after installing the driver from Gigabyte's website (mb_driver_vga_intel_64_8series.msi) because before that Windows thought 1024x768 was the max resolution! I'd also installed Dell's drivers.
If I look at the Screen Resolution... > Advanced Settings, it says "Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600". Then I click [List All Modes] it says that 1920x1080@60Hz@TrueColor is the maximum it supports!? Also says:
1696MB total available graphics memory
64MB Dedicated Video Memory
What did you guys do??
If an Intel Graphics report would help, let me know how to do it.
I have the same problem with the resolution.
Only i have 2 screens on win8.
Screen 1 : on HDMI - 1920x1080
Screen 2 : on DVI-D - Dell 2711 - max res 1680x1050 / 1600x1200
I tried to override the resolution using CustomModeApp.exe (with 2560, height 1440, 60 Hrtz, 32 bits, GTF) but i get the following responce
'The entered resolution expaned the maximum bandwith' (it's a translation from dutch, wont bore you with the original).
Maybe, but I think it's a very little chance to work with a mix cable DVI-D(DL)-HDMI (1.4), DP cable will work 100%.
But even with DP cable I have a problem. My Dell U2713HM don't go on stand-by. The screen is black, but not off, the led from the display and audio (AX510) are on. I think this could be a driver problem.
Next week a will return my DP cable and I will buy another one ( to eliminate a cable problem) and in this time I will try/search few drivers vers.
Same issue here although I was able to get 2560 x 1440 @ 40Hz, 32 bit, CVT-RB to work using CustomModeApp.exe. It would be nice if it would just work without the hack though. I can't change the color depth at all even using the custom tool.

edit: no sound through HDMI though...
