Trouble enabling AMD Freesync

I have recently setup two new freesync monitors. I have them in extended mode. Been trying to get AMD Freesync to work on the primary display. I have the displayport 1.2 and AMD Freesync activated in the monitors OSD but the AMD Crimson software still says that AMD Freesync is not supported. I have switched the displayport to the second monitor and activated displayport and freesync on it then restarted nothing. Tried just hooking one monitor up at a time via the displayport and restarting after I turned on displayport and freesync. Did that with both monitors. Installed the latest monitor drivers. Disabled crossfire then restarted still nothing. Below you will find my pc setup. Thanks in advance.
