RX 480 8GB flickers on ASUS XG32VQ

Hello guys,

I've just recently bought an ASUS XG32VQ (1440p, 144hz, Freesync) for my RX 480 8 GB. I've noticed strange behaviour when in 144hz mode; it flickers heavily when I use it for general task (browsing, scrolling, idling in desktop), both with Freesync on and off. However, when I game, no flickers to be seen. When I set to 120hz mode, the flicker is completely gone.

Already DDU-ing,reinstalling graphic drivers to latest (18.3.4) and installing monitor's driver. So far I can't eliminate that non-gaming flickers.

Any suggestions?

Both graphics cards(r9 290-rx580) were tested on the same motherboard did not change anything.Hz (60-144) fluctuation continues.
z77 motherboard x16 input does not work, video cards pci exp x4 inserted into the slot, can this be the reason?
