For some reason even when Im at the desktop no programs open, my card won't go into idle mode. I'm wondering how to fix this because it creates extra heat in my system which causes my cpu fans to to on slightly so there is this constant whurr sound.

My GPU temperatures are ~38 C when it does downclock correctly while idle. And 65C now that it doesn't so thats a big difference too

RS your system and see if that helps. you have something on that is causing it to run.

You can use nvidia inspector to force it to downclock.
check your GPU load. Is anything eating it up?

I actually found the root cause of it real quick after struggling with this for a while. Nvidia Shadowplay running in instant replay mode was forcing it to run in 3D clocks. Just installed the new Nvidia drivers and the issue is gone. It runs in idle even with Instant replay on.

Only thing that sucks is that it's been running at those clocks at idle for probably months now, but I'm glad its fixed now
