Got this monitor for more than 1 yr and never got such problems. I always try to be on latest driver&win 10 version. Tested many games limited below 240 fps ingame or with RTSS with nvidia VSYNC ON. I noticed that with Nvidia VSYNC and GSYNC everything is much more fluid than without VSYNC.

Worth to mention is that i use only 1 monitor setup (no other monitor connected to my gfx card).

i tried with only one monitor connected and it still didnt work you think i should go to the store and tell them about it and they can maybe give me a new one?

i also tried using a different cable

If u can try it on different computer and then go to shop. There should be no black flickering at all.

Fast google'ing indeed showing that ppl have kind of flickering problems not only with this particular monitor. One says that is driver problem - if U have time reinstall windows and install latest drivers. Other says its DP cable problem. Bf1, Bf5, Apex, R6S, ROE have no problems on 240Hz in fullscreen mode.
