I managed to get 144hz after tweaking some settings in radeon driver settings.
I have another issue though, I get video_tdr_failure error every time I play games.
I have had a chat with Sapphire and they asked me to contact the reseller for a hardware check but I am unable to get a straight answer from Ebuyer.com
Is there anything I can do to fix this issue or could it be a faulty card. I tried different driver versions and always uninstalled previous ones using DDU in safe mode, also tried updating the bios and flashing it but nothing seems to help, I get the error regardless. I really like this card and don't want to change it as it meets all my requirements for gaming.

You need to test your RX card on another PC. It really can be faulty. Also for Intel 7XXX CPU you need Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. With all updates.
Just so you know.FreeSync works at 144Hz using the DVI-D port and the DPI Display port connection.So if you are trying to get 144Hz performance an you are using HDMI you may be able to get 120 but not 144.Just so you know.I`m not judging just saying.
Unfortunately I don't have a different pc setup to test it on at the moment, hence why Sapphire recommended a hardware check from the reseller. I am using Windows 10 Pro 64bit and I am using a DisplayPort connection and was using that same connection on the GTX 660Ti
Well you need one of these cables for it to work.I had this problem on Fallout 4.The problems where Freesync wouldnt work on some connections.You need DVI or you need a Display port connection.Find out what your monitor supports an what your graphics card supports.I am not gonna assume anything.I am gonna let you work it out in your head how this works.You may need a new cable to get this working right.Just letting you know.
