I've followed the guide to the letter, very nice performance now. But the clocks do NOT go down at all, ever. I tried changing Power management to Adaptive and Optimal, but it's still locked at the maximum clock.
I see in Task Manager that "Client Server Runtime Process" is constantly using 0.1% of GPU. Is this the cause? Does this BIOS mod mean that as soon as anything requests 3D rendering, it will just ramp up to max clock immediately, regardless of the GPU load? How can I solve this, or is it not really possible under Windows 10 since large parts of the OS itself is hardware accelerated?
I really don't like that my PC is consuming ~150w on idle now instead of the ~70w it was before, that's all. Well, the fact that voltage is constant and the GPU (970 GTX) never goes below 58 degrees C is pretty nasty, too.

You did actually open a bios ROM file, right? It can't edit the card as-is, you need to dump the BIOS first and open it. Until you do, it will just appear blank - like the screenshot you shared.
