Just a wild thought that passed my mind.

do you have a steel straight edge ruler, or straight razer blade.

check the flatness of both the cpu top surface and the mating surface on the cooler. is it possible the cpu surface is concave?

consider a thermal pad instead of paste. new pads are gaining popularity and work almost as well as the best pastes. plus much better at addressing surface imperfections. With the added bonus of reusable and no cleaning between test sessions. Linus just did a new Utube on the topic with new products to test.

I prefer a perfect surface and a tiny dab of paste. but dislike the cleanup.... good luck

Hello there. I started with the same issue, but now it seems to be solved. All I did was updating video and chipset drivers, and more importantly (in my opinion) was to change the way de laptop responds when closing it and pressing the suspend button. I switched from "suspend" to "hibernate" and from then on i hadn't have that problem, either with the AC power plugged or unplugged. 
Hope this can help others with this same issue!

Your vBIOS is latest for your card.
Are you able to try different cable?
How about different drivers?
What if you swap the cards and check that card then?

Thanks for the reply. I kind of don't see flickering anymore, I've used DDU and went back to the latest WHQL drivers, disabled Xbox DVR, and re-flashed the latest BIOS.
However, I have 2 problems remaining:

1) When I start a game, the core clock is firm at 1303MHz(stock) then keeps dropping to 1200's and 1100's (sometimes even lower) after a few seconds while still trying to get to 1303MHz again. There's noticeable micro-stutters.
2) A very old issue that started happening after about 6 months from buying the card. The fans no longer work around 1600 RPM like they used to. They jump to 2400+ RPM and sound like a jet engine.

Here's the odd thing... When I set the 1600 RPM setup through Global Wattman or MSI Afterburner, the temps are no different than when it works at 2400 RPM. I'm beginning to think the card's temperature is false and it's probably thermal throttling. Saw a post yesterday of one person fixing the same problem by re-applying the thermal paste. He has the exact same card and it was throttling. He said the temperature shown by the software is false. Mine shows in 60's, same for that dude too. GPU's utilization is 100% which is good.
So I have a question, will the warranty be voided if I open the card and re-apply the thermal paste?

So I bought this MSI monitor and have had it for maybe 2 months going on 3. Now I don't use my PC to often due to work but all of a sudden half of my monitor has a red over lay on it while the other half is normal. I can't seem to find any one having this problem nor can I figure out how to get in contact with MSI about replacing my monitor. Any help is greatly appreciated thank you guys. Here is the picture of what it looks like

First to answer your questions-

1) Eco mode is turned off on the PSU
And the CPU for the 4 pin.
3) I've used only the cables that came with the unit.
4) I have tried different wall outlets both with and without surge protector.
5) Yes
6)I've been looking but so far nothing.

Now I started having the same thought, that it might still be power related. I contacted EVGA and they confirmed that the original power supply I sent in for RMA was found to be faulty. They said it failed to complete benchmark tests. I'm currently speaking with them on the issue. I found it hard to believe that I could have received  a second faulty PSU from them, but unless I've really messed something up here, it may be a case of two faulty PSU.

Just noticed that my memory isn't listed in the compatibility list.

I own a MSI B350 Gaming Plus with the last bios 7A34vMA and my Gskill Tridentz 3200CL16 works with XMP at 3200.

You guys can add this to the compatibility list i have 2x8gb working at 3200 with 1.36v with XMP

Thanks! Good, so it is not a problem related to a too high system or CPU temperature. You can reset to default FAN speeds. :think:

Now, my main suspect is power because you said in your first post that (at the beginning) restarts were associated with an "Event ID 41 ‘Kernel-Power’". This event is usually a sign of a faulty PSU or power input (for example, Please, can you try that:
1/ Sorry to begin with a dummy question but is your PSU "EVGA Supernova 550 G2" (80+ Gold) in ECO Mode:
If it is, retry after to have switched off ECO mode.
2/ What PSU's outputs have you connected to mobo's JPWR1 (24 pins) and JPWR2 (4 pins):
(please, mark them in this picture).
3/ Are you using only cables furnished with the PSU? If not, retry after to have replaced all not furnished with it.
4/ Are you using a surge protection device? If yes, retry without it.
5/ Retry after to have connected your pc on another electrical outlet?
6/ Can you borrow another PSU (if possible at least 600 Gold) and try?
Good luck,
:hat tip:
