Freesync 2 Causes flicker on screen

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey :)

I bought a 2560x1400 165 FPS, 31 inch HDR dell monitor. 

I'm generally super happy with the product, but when I activate Freesync 2 [one of the reasons I picked this screen] it starts flickering. Nothing huge but it's noticeable

What do i do? Is it a freesync issue? is it a settings issue? 

 

-thank you

When I google this it's sugguesting the software called GRU, is that the best way to change my fps? 
Or is there a simpler- or better way?

In the graphics setting for the game there should be an FPS setting.

If i enable freesync it causes general flickering. 
In Windows as well as in games. It seems like the screen can't really handle Freesync at 165hz, i'm just in doubt of how to fix it.
