Even changing the PSU doesn't do a damn thing
Next week on long holiday gonna remove all the hardwares & fans then install part by part
Really need to find the source of this flickering
Could it be the casing that's causing this? Afterall, the flickering starts 4 days after I switch casing
List of the things I've tried:
1. Change motherboard, processor & RAM - flickering
2. Change graphic card - flickering
3. Fresh format to Windows 7 - flickering
4. Use older radeon drivers - flickering
5. Change PSU - flickering
6. Change monitor - flickering
7. Use a SATA SSD - flickering
8. Transfer my R9 390X & RX550 to a different PC - No flickering
, so it's definitely my PC
well, good luck man; it's really frustrating. i don't really think it's the pc case but who knows?
in another computer, did you use the freesync display and turn freesync on?

Thanks , sorry for the late reply. I don't think there's an SSD bios.Hope you can help a hand here.
Dell inspiron year before 2010 , check it had ACHI.
What are the cheapest SSD year around yet reliable ? Samsung ? I remember last time intel 320 with 5 years warranty which really good.
Storage at lease 160GB.
from what you have highlighted, i think your laptop is ok for a ssd since the bios has ahci. it's most probable that you will reuse the ssd when you replace the laptop, so i think a 240gb range ssd should be good for you in future.
samsung 850 evo is still the better sata-based mainstream option imo. unless you have a tight budget, go with 850 evo 250gb at least.
edit: the sweet spot since last year is supposed to be 512gb in terms of capacity. (meaning same price of a 240gb range for last year but its capacity doubles; in fact in the US, the sweet spot is 1tb this year) here it sort of happened, but just not really what we want. (weak currency make us consumers buy expensive stuff for no reason)This post has been edited by horns: Aug 25 2017, 03:43 AM
