No, but AMD's driver doesn't normally interfere with refresh rates in games.

If you're using Windows 8.1, you might be running into this problem described in the CRU thread:

To work around the problem, restart the driver after rebooting using the driver restarter ( To automatically restart the driver after rebooting, rename restart64.exe (64-bit) or restart.exe (32-bit) to restart-only.exe and use the task scheduler to run it when you log on. Make sure "Run with highest privileges" is enabled in the task properties.
I'm using Windows 7 x64. :/

edit: Also to confirm that it DOES use 120Hz I fired up Space Engineers where the issue also occurs and put Vsync on when using Fraps. It capped at 120 FPS, monitor got set to Standard mode, if I change to windowed mode it changes to 3D mode, but what's the point in having crossfire if I am in windowed mode...

edit2: I got DX10/11 to work when using strobelight setup to ONLY apply strobed refresh rates. However I have TWO identical monitors, and upon doing this the second one won't work because it requires 60Hz over DVI because only one of the ports are DVI-D.

Seems like if a non-strobed refresh rate is available it will move to it thanks to the second screen, any possible workaround?
