Relevant Specs:

I've noticed in League of Legends and GW2 that, with Freesync enabled, the game stutters super badly. It feels like it's running at 30-45FPS. When I disable Freesync, the games run as smoothly as I would expect. Fullscreen League has the issue, but freesync seems to work fine with fullscreen GW2. This started to happen after reinstalling my drivers (and eventually upgrading them) the other day.


On a side note, I can't OC my GPU at all. This happens both in Wattman and MSI Afterburner when I try to increase the clockspeed:

Has anyone run into this issue?:
