Monitor randomly goes black for 2-3 secs on games

Hi, i'm wondering where the problem can be. Ryzen 2700x CPU,RX580 8GB GPU Optix MAG27CQ monitor I'm using DisplayPort 1.2 cable and 2560x1440p @144hz resolution. While gaming monitor randomly goes black for 1-3 seconds. Tried 3 cables (the one i got with PC, another VESA ceritified and 3rd from amazon). Same results. I found out it doesn't blink either i change refresh rate to 60hz (blinks on 120hz too) or change resolution to 1920x1080 @144hz. But this resolution doesn't look good on 27" monitor. All drivers up to date. Thanks.

What are the monitor's Recommended Settings?

2560x1440p is recommended settings. The only non recommended option i changed is increased the scaling from 100% to 150%.

What happens when you run it at the Recommended Settings?

Same. Scaling only makes the text and icons bigger. As i wrote earlier the only times i dont have blinking then i run either 60hz or lowered resolution.
