Predator X34 P flickering

Just bought a Predator X34 P monitor and after installing the monitor have noticed that it flickers after about 2 min of use. I am using DiplayPort as HDMI cables could not achieve the resolution of 3440 x 1440 and when the screen flickers (the whole screen blacks out momentarily) the DP icon appears in the top right corner as if had lost connection. This reoccurs every 3-5 min, whether i'm in game or not. 

My Rig: 2 x GeForce GTX1080
Processor: Intel COre i7-6700k CPU @ 4.00GHz
Windows 10
Nvidia drivers: Version 391.01
 
I've tried to bringing the Refresh rate down ( and have synced with the Nvidia Control Panel) but despite this it persists. Switched DP cables, disabled GSync, reconfigured the SLI, and have already checked an tried a couple of the suggestions others made in the past (updated drivers, disabled Overclocking), but nothing has worked yet. Any suggestions of what to try here.

    So i have a small correction at the moment. It would seem the flickering only starts after i start a game, thereafter it happens on both the game and in the general programs. Again tried to disable G-Sync, but it has had no effect as of yet. Is anyone else getting this problem, and better yet has someone got a solution?

    OK. But what happens when you do HDMI out albeit at lower resolution? Jack E/NJ

    I just started having the same problem with this monitor I bought recently, is there a known fix for this?   I disabled the Extreme settings and disabled the Overclock and it stopped flickering.  I'm using DP for input.  Not sure why it starting doing this all of a sudden, is it defective?
