I'm on latest 417 drivers but if there is a better 1 I'm all ears!!
You'll probably have to do some digging to find the best Pascal driver for Timespy.


O&O Shutup10 is something everyone on W10 should be using anyway, I wouldn't have been able to tolerate the OS without it.
It disables the forced update scheme, the re-installing of bloatware and about a hundred other things. My idle CPU/RAM usage is drastically reduced compared to vanilla W10 but isn't as impressive as when I made custom .ISOs. The custom ISO route is one I'd only use for a special "benchmark OS" if you will. O&O can disable/stop a lot of things but the custom .ISO prevents them from ever being installed like Cortana for example...a bench OS doesn't need any of that crap. There's a learning curve to making your own ISO but I feel like it would be worth it to make one for benching.
