GPU not Downclocking

I'm back. I'm sure you've already read and (chances are) responded to a thread like this before. I have an MSI 1080 Ti Gaming X, not overclocked. So let me get this out of the way: I've read pretty much everything I could find about it on google. I tried the NVIDIA 3D preference "optimal" and "adaptive" in "power management mode", I tried turning the refresh rate of my monitors down (i have a 1440p 60Hz, 1440p 144Hz set to 60Hz 24/7, and a 1440p UW 100Hz), I turned off shadowplay, I do not have EVGA Precision OC installed, so I do not have K-mode turned on... I think that's it. I probably tried more stuff but I'm just not remembering. Interestingly enough, the voltage drops like normal, but the core clock stays at 1418 MHz. It downclocks to 1018 if i force it in MSI afterburner.

 

For added information, I recently upgrade to the 1080 Ti, and had a 1080 FE before that and it downclocked at idle like normal. I'm pretty sure the 1080 Ti has never downclocked since installing it. I did not use DDU before putting the 1080 Ti in, but I haven't noticed any other problems, beside the 1080 Ti being complete garbage at OCing (like +120 MHz max). I've done multiple driver installs since putting the 1080 Ti in and have done clean installs on all of them. Kind of at a loss. The specific card I have has a zero % fan speed at idle, and it turns on at 62C, so the card slowly climbs from about 58C to 62C, fans turn on it drops again, fans turn off, repeat. I'm assuming the card would be idling around 35C if the clock speed dropped like normal. My 1080 idled under 40C iirc. Or at least around there.

 

Thanks

for good measure, could just do a clean install of nvidia drivers (not really necessary to DDU, i'd say)

 

beyond that, some software may keep your card at max clock, even if they dont require more than a few % gpu load.

Did a clean install of the lastest driver about 45 minutes ago, and software has not changed since obtaining the 1080 Ti
