MSI Ventus OC RTX 2080 - flickering issue
« on: 26-December-18, 03:00:24 »




I'm getting this annoying flickering mostly on my 2nd display when playing video (any source, any player) it looks something like this (not my vid but similar):


I tried: DDU clean install of all RTX drivers, new cables, different ports, both displays are at 60Hz even different resolutions
I had a GTX1080 and never got these flickering.

Any solution for this? Other than RMA?

this issue happens with dual display setup only?
have you tried to reverse the display order, primary & secondary and retest?

can you tell S/N of the card and save and upload its current firmware to check for updates?

Sure thing: S/N: 602-V372-14SB1809006376

I attached the ROM as well (had to rar it because its 1MB size...)

Also, with just the primary display connected on DP the screen doesn't flicker (even tho I got rarely flickers no the DP display but never while playing 3D games, but I get HDMI secondary display flickering while running video content even while playing games so mem/gpu clocks aren't the issue, neither is the voltage I tried lowering all values and issue remains exactly the same so its not frequency/3D dependent, also issues are with all video content media player/youtube/twitch etc)

I also tried reinstalling all video drivers and codecs, running just a clean win10 install with just video content on Edge browser from youtube/twitch/amazon/netflix etc and issues are the same.

I'm srsly hoping for a BIOS update that solves the issues because I'm almost certain the hardware ain't faulty...

You are using vbios version NV372MH.114. There is an update as latest is NV372MH.116.

For flashing use nvflash: https://www.techpowerup.com/download/nvidia-nvflash/

note that you need to rename the unpacked file NV372MH.116 to .rom (e.g. 116.rom) for flashing.

If you saved the nvflash for windows .exe say under drive d: you can start it in a Windows prompt in administrator mode after you saved the .rom at the same place. First type d: (or wherever you saved nvflash and the .rom) and press enter. Now you changed to drive d: where you have nvflash in the root directory. Now start the flash with the following line: nvflash -6 116.rom (press enter)

Note that if using a 64bit OS you'll need to run the line nvflash64 -6 116.rom

Ok... firstly thanks a lot for the vBios update, couldn't find one anywhere.

So I'm going through testing it but first impression, trying to replicate the flickering, sadly its still happening but like 1-5% of what it was before, its glitching very very rarely, but its still does it.

It does still only affect 2nd screen? What exact screen is it?

I use an LG 34UC87C-B (on DP) + LG 55OLED B7V (on HDMI new HDR cable), mostly issues are on the second display when I watch videos on it.
I didn't rly get flickering on the main display and I didn't get to test out this new vBios much.

And again, I had the same settings, same setup on my GTX1080 - never had any issues like this.

Thnx a lot for the help, much appreciated!

Not really, but it couldn't be the display, it works just fine with the GTX1080 or with the iGPU, also, this last vBIOS made the issue almost gone, almost

It can be the display. compatibility with TVs can be an issue from one vga to the other.

I don't have another display lying around that I can test HDMI on sadly, I'm gonna have to find a way to test that, but either way its not a solution for me, and compatibility with another display is not something I've ever heared about and should be something people know about. I mean Steve from Gamers Nexus found out some issues with G-Sync and stuff like that, but still, its a faulty product.
Here, I found another recent video of the exact same problem I have with dual display, gonna try and record it myself and post a vid of it glitching.

if you leave the 2nd screen alone, does it still flickering?

can you get another different and high quality HDMI cable to try?
have you tried another HDMI input on the TV?
have you tried change the definition of the HDMI input on TV?

Hey there Svet and happy new year!
Thanks for the reply, so there's some interesting stuff here, I'll reply to all inquiries 

1. No, if just one display is connected at either DP or HDMI, there's no flicker
2. Yes, this is the 4th cable, 3 new and 1 old I used before with no issues.
3. Yes, tried them all, no difference
4. Oh this is a doozy, I tried all sort of combos on both displays and there's a trully odd combo: IF I set the HDMI TV on 4:2:0 / 8bpc / Limited and TV on Auto (RGB / 8bpc / full) the DP display starts to flicker!!! So this is the only setting the HDMI display DOESN'T flicker, but the color range is also... well crap. The DP display also doesn't flicker in video/games in this combo either...

So whats clear, or at least sort of, its that the issue is somewhat bandwith / color format related, somehow... 

Any ideas where to go to from here?

Here's a pic with the settings:

connect another TV and see if this flicker will persist there too
this will help to isolate the issue
if this particular TV is making the issue or its something else.

if its happens for this particular TV only,
then try a firmware update for this TV

you can bring the PC to a friend or a neighbour to try it on a different TV

or contact LG support and tell them about the issue
they may already know of this issue and to be aware of this

Just a little update on the matter:

The issues has solved itself out. Maybe due to some windows 10 updates but most probably because of the new Nvidia drivers.  The card is working without any issues now and can be pushed to 2100/8000Mhz on stock cooler too :)
