Instead of staying at 139mhz it randomly jumps to 605 and 1569 and stays there for a couple minutes before going back down to 139. Any idea what could be causing this?

    A process running in the background is the most likely cause.

    In task manager I am at 0% GPU with chrome closed. I only see client server run time process that jumps around from 0-4%. Even at 0% usage it still takes a while to go back down to 139mhz from 605

    Ok... 
     
    Download process explorer and suspend searchui.exe. See if that fixes the issue for you.

    If suspending searchui.exe doesn't fix the issue then I would recommend that you scan your system with mbam.

    Suspending searchui didnt help and I just scanned it with malwarebytes before making this topic. It only found local files with chrome which is apparently a known bug.

    Inside process explorer select view (top left), select columns, select process gpu, check mark gpu usage. That will create a column on the main screen called "GPU", you will be able to monitor what process is using your GPU the most when idle. See if you notice anything with that.

    The graph tells me that when I just scroll up a web page like this one, chrome.exe or the gpu itself shoots up the gpu usage to 30-35% for a second and my clock hits 1569.

    Why are you mentioning chrome? I thought this was happening just sitting on the desktop with nothing open but precision or afterburner.

    I thought I mentioned it on the first post but this only happens when browsing. Completely idle with nothing but afterburner it sits at 139 but browsing any website shoots it up to 1500

    Whoops, sorry for the mistake then. Thanks for all the help. Wow so then why is it normal for just browsing a page to bump up and keep the clocks at such a high rate?

    Inside process explorer select view (top left), select columns, select process gpu, check mark gpu usage. That will create a column on the main screen called "GPU", you will be able to monitor what process is using your GPU the most when idle. See if you notice anything with that.




    The graph tells me that when I just scroll up a web page like this one, chrome.exe or the gpu itself shoots up the gpu usage to 30-35% for a second and my clock hits 1569.
     


    Why are you mentioning chrome? I thought this was happening just sitting on the desktop with nothing open but precision or afterburner.


    I thought I mentioned it on the first post but this only happens when browsing. Completely idle with nothing but afterburner it sits at 139 but browsing any website shoots it up to 1500


    No you didn't mention it in the first post. Jumping clocks while browsing is normal.


    Whoops, sorry for the mistake then. Thanks for all the help. Wow so then why is it normal for just browsing a page to bump up and keep the clocks at such a high rate?


    Yes your title threw me off "1080ti ftw3 clock keeps boosting when just in desktop"
    It is completely normal as Sajin pointed out for clocks to bounce all over when browsing. If you'd had not specifically claimed it was while you were JUST on the Desktop, and not actually browsing, a post or two would have got you the right answer. Also the higher refresh and resolution you are running the higher your average GPU usage will be even while doing something as lightweight as browsing.
