    This driver did fix the idle voltage issue for me. At idle and optimal power I'm back down to 625MV.

    Hmm... the other day I had an issue with my pc, after a warm reboot; the Windows 10 logo with the spinning dot circle never went away.  It was only later that I discovered I could put in my PIN, and I could hear Windows play the normal sound when Windows was finished loading - the mouse pointer worked too, and it would even change to the hand and the text cursor moving over the area of the screen where the login/password prompt was. 
     
    Short version, rebooting to safe mode and uninstalling the nVidia driver (381.65) got it working again; is this the "black screen" issue this driver puports to fix?  I'll try it anyway; just curious.

    Nothing helped with my 1080 ti drivers and Creators update.  After installing the hotfix driver the nvidia dx11 driver errors got allot more frequent.  Rolled back to anniversary edition and all is well... not 1 error in 2 days of gaming.    It only took 3 minutes to roll back the update!  Even my games loading @ ssd speeds again (i turned off superfetch that Windows renabled on the update, but the games still loaded slow)    That update has a long way to go when it comes to PC gaming.  Shame because i liked the basic OS changes allot.

    I should Clarify: the OSD for Power % is missing
     

     
    Top left box is no longer an option.

    oh this reminds me, this driver is also causing artifacting on older games for me, world of warcraft, cs 1.6, etc anything newer seems to be fine
     
    no reason i should be able to slam both cards at 100% on bf1 then go to WoW with them at 10%~ and getting crazy artifacting haha
