I got a 165hz monitor before and I noticed the screen would flicker at random times, I went and replaced it and now 3 days later the monitor is flickering again. The monitor I got is a Acer Nitro 23.8" FHD 165Hz and I have an RX580. I have a feeling it must be the settings in my pc or something causing it to flicker because what are the chances both monitors have this problem? Does anyone know how I can fix this? My old 60hz monitor never had this issue, but now I have this problem with a 165hz one, I replace it with another, and the problem still persists.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

How are you paired with the discrete GPU and the display? Include the model for your Acer panel and perhaps a link to the RX580 you own. How old is the PSU in the build, alongside it's make and model? What version of Windows 10 are you working with?

I tried pairing using hdmi and the dp cable that came with it as well as my own spare I had, the acer panel I own is https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/acer-nitro-23-8-fhd-165hz-2ms-gtg-ips-led-freesync-gaming-monitor-xv240y-black/14472744 and the RX580 is https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0711QH8ZS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and I've had my PSU since december of 2019, the psu is https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01MRW2K79/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and I'm currently on the latest windows 10 software. My concern is I have no idea if it's the gpu or the monitor, my other 60hz monitors don't have this issue however only when I go to 165hz or 144hz I get this problem

Hi, I have the same issue with a Huawei Mateview GT 34" at 165Hz and 144Hz. The horizontal lines does not appear at 120Hz. Sorry if I'm reviving an old post.
