Monitor Flickering with STRIX 1070

I just replaced my two EVGA 970s with a Strix 1070 yesterday. I noticed my monitor started flickering every so often. Like it flashes brighter for a second and goes back to normal. This repeats while I'm browsing the web or gaming.

Monitor is a PG278Q

144hz monitors have been having flickering problems with the new cards. I have a dell s2716dg and I had bad flickering when web browsing and some games. There was a driver update that came out that helped but I find if it still happens that turning my refresh rate down to 120 and then back up to 144 seems to fix it. I haven't noticed any flickering for the past couple weeks since. There's a whole forum thread about it over on nvidias website.

I'll fidget with it some more when I get home.

Didn't have this issue with my 970s.

I did try unplugging the DP cable and plugging it back in last night.

I'll try plugging it into the other DP port and the integrated graphics as well.
