FreeSync not working in Borderless Window Mode with ReLive patch

I recently updated to the latest driver patch and I've been testing a variety of games (HotS, Overwatch, Dota 2, Battlerite, Witcher 3 and DOOM) and with the sole exception of DOOM, FreeSync won't work with any of my games in borderless windowed mode. FreeSync works properly when I switch my games to Exclusive Fullscreen

 

 

I know it's not working because when I check my monitor information it shows the current refresh rate and though this fluctuates properly in DOOM based on the fps it's a constant 144Hz on all my other games. I haven't found any similar problems in the support forums, nor do I see any on the AMD subreddit either so I honestly have no idea what's wrong with my system. Really hoping someone could shed some light  on this (I've also sent feedback via support option in Radeon Settings).

 

 

My current system:

Processor: AMD FX8320E @4.1Ghz

GPU: MSI R9 390

RAM: 2x Ripjaws 8GB DDR3 @1600Mhz

Mobo: Asus Sabertooth 990FX

PSU: CoolerMaster Silent Pro II 700W

Monitor: ViewSonic XG2401 (via DisplayPort)

GPU Driver: ReLive Update (16.12.1)

 

 

Really hope someone from AMD can help me out with this, as it's really frustrating me and I don't know how to fix it and I can't find anyone else who can
