FreeSync working or not?

So I have FreeSync monitor (Dell SE2717H 27", 40 - 75Hz FreeSync) and AMD card (XFX AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB GDDR5).

FreeSync is enabled in settings and on my monitor by default (I dont have settings for FreeSync in monitor menu, but it says on web site it is enabled by default and I installed drivers), but I feel like there is still some screen problems, Idk how to explain it but bottom on monitor seems like is tearing or having some problems.

 

I tried to set max. fps in AMD setting to 73, but same thing. I have seen some people recommand using ingame v-sync with FreeSync, and some say to not use it but use AMD settings.

What should I do? How do I know if my FreeSync is working as intended? What is best "combination" to have maximum out of FreeSync monitor?

 

Also I tried to do FreeSync + cap fps on 73, and disable FreeSync + uncap fps (I'm getting some 100) -> In both cases I cant see any difference... How can I test is my FreeSync working as intended?
