Question Second screen disconnecting and twitching when using Intel HD graphics

I discovered that when I use HDMI my display can only do 120Hz + FreeSync, so I tried using DisplayPort and it gave me the ability to do 144Hz + FreeSync.

The problem with this is that for some reason FreeSync won't work when I have my second 60Hz display connected. (this problem only occurs when using DisplayPort)
So I connected my second display to my motherboard so it uses the Intel HD graphics. At first sight this seemed to work perfectly, but after a while I noticed that my second display disconnected and reconnected constantly (this occurs mainly when gaming). Sometimes the display twitches on the bottom and right side. To fix this I need to reconnect the cable but sometimes the display just keeps black so I need to alt+tab to get it back on.

Any idea what's going on here? Thanks
