Hi,
As the title suggests, my monitor screen flickers very badly when I set the refresh rate in Display Settings of Windows 10 64bit to anything above 60hz. I'm using a Pixio Prime PX7 monitor. I am on the latest BIOS version.
I have tried downgrading the display driver, and then it works at higher refresh rate, but only until I restart the PC. Then it starts flickering again. The flickering is more apparent in games, than on the desktop, but its there. I have also tried changing the the display port, but to no avail.

Here is the video from my phone. Apologies for the shaky camera
However, when I tried to capture the flicker using windows screen capture, it didn't show. Please see the video for reference of what I'm talking about. How do I confirm if the problem is with the graphics card or the monitor? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Does the fact that the screen flicker doesnt show up on the screen capture points to a problem with the monitor? I'm at my wits end here. Is it better to just contact the monitor manufacturer and ask for a replacement and will they do it without knowing the root cause?
I have tried checking windows event viewer for errors, there aren't any. Also tried switch to a HDMI cable which didn't help and I don't have access to another high refresh rate monitor.
Specs:
Ryzen 3700
Asus TUF x570
Sapphire Nitro+ 5700XT
16gb T-Force Ram
Corsair RM750x

Internal screen capture not showing symptoms means it could be external, cable or monitor. Could also possibly be a program such as Msi Afterburner (if installed) affecting the card's clocks/power states causing output issues.

Check see if a setting in the monitor changes anything. Try turn off Freesync. Check refresh rate settings there and maybe possible eco/power saving modes.

Seems it's a common issue with these cards and high refresh rates.
