Question Msi g241: Flickering when using Displayport+144hz

Dec 22, 2021
Hello, i have being using my msi with hdmi for the last couple of months with no problems whatsoever, today i upgraded to a gtx 1660 ( from a 970 ) and so i wanted to use the gsync compatibility that comes with this monitor, i bought a display port cable and when i plugged it, the screen kept flickering/going black from time to time, When i turned down the Refresh rate from 144hz to 75Hz the flickering stopped completely ( i tried turning gsync off and it changed nothing)

thanks in advance
