I did for a while until I got used to it. Changing the refresh rate made two noticeable impacts that I had to get used to before returning to how I was before:
1) Mouse movement feels different, and any gamer knows how that can mess up aiming for a while.
2) Visual movement cues are different, so snap movements no longer feel the same.
#1 impacts fine aiming skills: the parts of aiming that aren't done at high speed. #2 impacts bulk aiming skills: the parts that are done quickly without necessarily looking at what you're aiming at (like turning 90 degrees to the side before finishing up with fine aiming).
