Gray bar flickering on PG279Q in games with G-Sync on

Recommended Posts

I have been using the PG279Q for well over 2 years and recently I noticed there is a dark (gray or black) bar at the top of the screen that I only really see when I'm gaming with G-Sync on in some games. It flickers when I move the mouse or move in the game. I've not managed to see this happen during other regular Windows use. I think I can still see the black bar in game when I disable G sync but that might be my eyes tricking me lol.

Has anyone ever seen this before and has any solutions?  I'm attaching a video of the issue from in game.


My specs:
R9 3900x

x370 C6H (x570 upgrade pending)

Asus Strix GTX 1080Ti

I should add that I was playing Stick of Truth (lots of colours making the bar easier to see) but it's capped at 30fps. Could that be causing this? Cause the games I mostly see this is before playing this has been the older Assassins Creed games which are often capped at around 60

This is disappointing to see. I changed my background to default Windows 10 and I can see the black bar....I hope my screen didn't get faulty the moment it fell out of warranty :(

Any ideas?


I might message Asus support soon about this and see what what they have to say.
