Finally got back into Windows by doing a System Refresh (restore points wouldn't even work). Then I start installing apps and drivers and get to 326.41 again, install them, and after the reboot...same ****. Now I have to waste time doing a Refresh again
and use an older driver
How are you installing? By selecting custom -> clean install -> only select graphics and physx? Mainly want to avoid GeForce experience at all costs as it is the root of most evil and problems that people have been having lately.
Yes. I always select custom/clean install. And don't select the Geforce Experience.

You need to actually turn the computer off and then turn it back on. This will actually restart the card itself.
So do you mean that the software tool will lose control at some point unless completely powering down? Like what if after a benching session at 1.3v you just select 1.15v in the tool and click Apply? It won't work, and stays at the first applied voltage regardless of subsequent applied voltages until powered down?
