Hello, thanks for stopping by, I know this is a weird issue but it is very frustrating.
After adding these 3 parts to my rig :
Motherboard : ASUS Prime Z270-A
GPU : 2x Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming
PSU : Cougar CMX V3 850-Watt 80 PLUS Bronze
Everything worked fine, I wanna play games, it's all good, even 4k is decent at medium settings with these cards, but my issue is, after exiting a game, both cards stay at 8000 memory and 1600 clock unless I restart my computer... I tried underclock, overclock, everything, they just get stuck and stay at 60 degree Celsius each... Any help is appreciated, thank you! I'm using the SLI bridge that was included in the motherboard box.
Example of what I see : https://s1.postimg.org/6mzuvc8gxr/Cards.png
Update 1 : It's still at full memory and clock even after restarting... This is really frustrating :/
Update 2 : This is too funny, it appeared to be Discord... Who knew? I just found the solution to be as follows... Removing Discord from starting on boot and opening it myself solved all my issue, still not 100% confirmed about it after exiting games but will check.
Update 3 : Seems to be running at full clock/memory when I open the following applications : Discord, Logitech Gaming Software, Spotify, Steam... I think anything? Could this be a driver issue or what? I'm confused... Any help is appreciated.

Wow, yeah mine don't do that. I do notice the memory clock never changes on my G1 1070s. But core drops down to 1595 and up to 2100mhz in games. Idle temps are normally around 30C for me.

Only thing I can say to try to do is reset everything back to defaults on the Gigabyte software, and close it out, make sure its not running by the clock on the task bar, and download GPU-Z and see what the clock speeds do. Might be Gigabytes software.

Both my 1070's do it as well, but I never really thought it was a problem, in fact I noticed it after reading your post. I still overclock mine and I set my fans to a min of 20% I hate them shutting off and on all the time.

Yeah.. The only problem with this is that both my cards are 55-60 degree Celsius idle... Which is very annoying... :/
