Issues running old 60fps capped games on a 144hz monitor

Hi all :wave: Just got a new 1440p monitor (msi optix mag321cqr) and overall I really like it but I encounter an odd issue of older (or newer ports from console) 60fps capped games not running correctly (think RE1 remake or crash nsane trilogy). The screen goes totally black intermittently. Any newer or uncapped titles play fine all the way up to 144hz but 60fps locked ones just don’t work. Also thinking it could be specific to this msi one as my old Acer predator z35 never had this issue. Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem or has a fix. Thanks :blush:

What happens when you set your OS to 60Hz? Do you get the same issue?
