    Does the monitor flicker only occasionally while playing games or continuously while using it normally?
    You can check by changing the refresh rate to match the capabilities of your monitor. 
    Also, update your graphics card drivers. 

    Turn on Vertical Sync if the flicker occurs when DirectX or OpenGL is in use, for example, while playing a PC game. Vertical Sync, or VSync, locks the refresh rate of the application to the refresh rate of the monitor. Horizontal flicker is reduced, which improves image quality. For Nvidia cards, VSync is found in "Manage 3D Settings." For Intel, look for "3D Settings" or "Asynchronous Flip." On ATI/AMD cards, turn on "Wait for Vertical Refresh.

    I just got off the phone to Acer Technical Support. I'm awaiting a shipping label, as I am going to RMA it. Not happy. The problem is unfortunately with most X34P models. It is fine with native 100 hz. As soon as I overclock it, it starts blinking/flickering. I was in 120hz rock solid heaven for about 2 weeks. Then it just started blinking. Tried everything, from re-setting the monitor to various software configurations. Nothing worked. Gotta pack this big assed thing back up to send. I will only do this once, as I'm pretty sure it's a consistent problem, addressed ONLY on a hardware level. I'm hoping that its just a matter of a "monitor lottery", so perhaps my replacement will not flicker..not very confident however. I will follow up and let you know. And no, changing the driver to "sync" does nothing, as it is a hardware problem.
