RX 6600 Random black screen/driver timeout when using different refresh rate monitors

I recently bought a 144hz monitor I've been using my old 60hz monitor as a secondary display. Since that I've been getting random black screens when playing a borderless screen game or playing a video in my second screen (either browser playback or VLC) I can still hear sound and after like 10 seconds I get a pop up saying the driver timed out. I disabled hardware acceleration in pretty much everything and this helped a bit but it didn't solved the problem.

I'm pretty sure is not the video card this didn't happened when I had two 60hz displays and it also doesn't happen when having just my main 144hz connected.

I think this was a "know issue" in driver version 22.11.0 was supposedly solved in version 22.11.2 (last driver version and the one I'm currently using) but it didn't do anything for me.

I already tried to do a clean install of the drivers (using DDU).
