Question Screen tearing with FreeSync on??

I have a FreeSync compatible monitor and GPU, both enabled in settings yet I still get horrible tearing.
I use Radeon Chill to cap my FPS to 70-73 and enabled Enhanced Sync, this method prevents most of the tearing but I still get horizontal tearing sometimes, I also tried using in-game FPS capping with the same effects.
However, when I play a game and dip down to 50 FPS or lower I get major tearing and I can't seem to find a method to prevent that other than VSync but I'm reluctant on using it because of its input lag penalties.
Can someone explain the proper way of using FreeSync and to prevent ALL tearing?
Specs:
GPU: Radeon RX 580 4GB
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
8GB RAM

Do you have motion blur off? According to the manual that must be off when using Freesync. Also are the FPS hitting 40? Freesync only down to 40 FPS/Hz.
Yes, motion blur is always off in monitor and game settings. I do know that the minimum range is 40 FPS but I get tearing even when I am in the range.

Sounds like it doesn't work.
I was thinking that's a possibility, before I thought it was my GPU so I exchanged it for a new one but surprisingly the issue persisted. Hopefully someone can help me find a solution, I'm extremely puzzled.
