Bad Monitor Capacitor?
I recently got the Nixeus EDG 27 and it has a weird issue.
Every day when starting the PC for the first time, there is flickering that lasts for around 3 minutes and after that everything is normal. I don't have any problems while gaming.
Today when the flickering started I changed the refresh rate from 144 Hz to 120 Hz and it instantly stopped, then I waited around 15 seconds before I put it back to 144 Hz and the flickering didn't come back.
I tried looking online and the consensus is that it's due to a bad capacitor in the monitor or its power supply, but if that's the case then why does it stop when I switch to 120 Hz?
The monitor doesn't have other problems so I don't really want to return it.
