Light screen flickering at all times with Radeon 5700

Question asked by mrdionysus on Jan 13, 2020

I just built a new system, and my monitor has a light flickering that's particularly noticeable on gray backgrounds such as Steam.  The only time I don't see flickering is when I restart in Safe mode.  The card is connected to the monitor using a DisplayPort cable.  Hardware and resolution attempts are noted below.  Please advise as to what else I can try!

 

Software:

Windows 10

 

Hardware:

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor

MSI B450 Gaming Plus MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard

MSI Radeon RX 5700 8 GB Evoke OC Video Card

AOPEN 27HC1R Pbidpx 27-inch 1800R Curved Full HD (1920 x 1080) Gaming AMD Radeon FreeSync and NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible Monitor 

 

Troubleshooting attempts:

Disabled FreeSync

Disabled all features in Radeon software

Stopped Radeon software (killed process in Task Manager)

Updated Radeon software to latest version

Tested on another identical monitor, exact same problem seen there.  This monitor does not have the problem when using a Geforce 970

Tested with different DisplayPort cable

Plugged DP cable into different DP ports on the card

Reinstalled Windows 10

All Windows 10 patches applied

In BIOS changed PCIE setting from [Auto] to [3]

Set refresh rate to 60hz
