Problem is however, that I'm getting a lot of stuttering in-game every 30 seconds or so (The FPS in-game is stable 120). The problem only occurs when Strobelight is installed, regardless of whether Strobelight mode is enabled/disabled. The problem goes away if I uninstall and reboot.
Make sure the frame rate is not capped to the refresh rate. Periodic stuttering can happen if there's a frame rate cap that's close to the refresh rate.

If vsync is enabled, that already acts as a frame rate cap, so having a separate frame rate cap can interfere with that. If the frame rate is stable, there shouldn't be any stuttering.

If vsync is disabled, the frame rate should not be a stable 120. That would indicate a frame rate cap. The frame rate should not be capped to the refresh rate. Tearing and stuttering is worst when the frame rate is close to the refresh rate.

Strobelight by itself shouldn't cause stuttering. It's just there to initialize the monitors on startup and to handle the hotkeys and the menu. You can exit Strobelight and strobing should still work based on the refresh rate. If the stuttering still happens when Strobelight isn't running, then it's very likely an issue with a frame rate cap clashing with the refresh rate.

The UFO test works differently. If it reports stuttering, that means there's a frame rate issue. Make sure you meet the requirements: http://testufo.com/browser.html
