Title: Optix Mag27cq, flicker when playing games using displayport
Post by: Sen11148 on 15-May-19, 17:41:45
I recieved this monitor in October and haven't had any issues. After nvidia released drivers that allowed gsync to be used on some approved monitors, I switched that on and loved it. (Current driver is 417.71)

I've recently noticed that while gaming (Wow, path of exile) I get flickering on this monitor. Tried turning gsync off (in nvidia control panel), updating drivers (that did not go well and I have since rolled them back), replacing the DP cable all with no improvement.  Tried using HDMI and there is no flicker.

Any ideas? Thanks for reading and your help!

Please refer manual on page 5 for setting FreeSync to OFF then checking it again.

If still, please also modify some setting value as below:
Mode: Standard
DCR: OFF
