Freesync not working in Overwatch w/ 16.10.1

I performed a clean installation of 16.10.1 and I am experiencing bad screen tearing in Overwatch.  I made sure to re-enable freesync in radeon settings (as this usually gets disabled on driver update) and verified my display adapter properties are set to 144hz in windows.  The monitor is connected using the same DisplayPort cable.

 

Most of the driver updates since early August have been causing a problem in at least one game I regularly play.  I decided to do a DDU clean and go back to either 16.8.1 or 16.7.X (the last driver that ran most of my games acceptable with crossfire and freesync), and windows became corrupted and stopped booting.  Reinstalled windows and tried again, same thing happened on a fresh installation.

 

Freesync seems fine in other titles.

 

Specs:

Two XFX 290X DD in crossfire

BenQ XL2730Z

8350

ASUS Crosshair-V Formula-Z

 

Anyone having the similar issues or have a suggestion?
