Don't know if you guys noticed this, but Nvidia finally made GSYNC available to everyone starting January 2019.
This means that if you're lucky to own a non-GSYNC monitor that is somehow compatible with GSYNC, you can still enable the feature in the Nvidia control panel.
Well, i tested today and seems our 27" 144Hz panel supports GSYNC just fine, even if it's not "certified" by Nvidia
So this amazing machine is now both Freesync and GSYNC compatible (with Nvidia drivers > 417.xx i think)
The recommended settings are: GSYNC ON + VSYNC ON in the Nvidia Control Panel, plus VSYNC OFF in the game menus.
Now all we need is modded / official BIOS for KabyLake...hello Lenovo?!

Yes we know that.
I posted it in January: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Desktops/G-SYNC-in-AIO-Y910-F0CJ000BUS/m-p/4344096#M2060
Unfortunately I discovered that the our lcd panel from the Y910-27ISH also has the GSYNC flickering problem that many other people with expensive GSYNC certified displays are reporting in several forums. Here you find an good example for this problem: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1030337/geforce-drivers/g-sync-flicker-fix-must-see-/
It seems that there is no general fix for this problem so I have decided for myself to turn GSYNC off because I don't like this light flickering.

Unfortunately Lenovo is not a gamer friendly company like e.g. Asus. So it's really annoying that they don't make this simple BIOS update for Kaby Lake. Really annoying... :-(

This is understandable but also no excuse for them either
They made this computer as a gaming one... as let's be honest what other aio systems can fit a full sized FE 1080gtx in and comes with a 144hz panel etc?
If I'm correct it's a h170 motherboard as well so they have no reason to not update the micro code for us lot since been trying out the 6700T cpu and seeing if much difference to the 6700 apart from TDP rating
At least update it for kabylake and then call it a day for this unit simple.. it isn't much to ask from them since these wernt cheap to purchase either and users obviously would like to put a kaby lake in
Must be someone who can maybe modify the bios for us with the updated code to allow the kabylake cpus?

Yes, you are right: The Y910-27ISH is a beast of a gaming machine. Best AIO ever!! I have the version with 32 GB RAM, Skylake 6700 and GTX1080. Really a great AIO...
Unfortunately the developers from Lenovo didn't manage the cooling problems so the sales figures were probably not as good as expected and finally they stopped supporting this AIO and probably the whole idea behind this AIO system... :-(
Without the undervolting trick for the cpu I would be unhappy too because of the very loud fan noise within games...
So I hope that the Lenovo developers will at least do the security fixes for this AIO in the future even if they told me in September 2018 that they think that this AIO is end of life...

Just checking in.... I also tested this out and get the flickering problem with GSYNC turned ON. I get it in game and out.
Anyone able to overcome this flickering issue?
