Hi everyone,

I got a new monitor a couple days ago (Pixio PX7 Prime), and I am loving it.

However, I'm having an issue with the idle clock of my GPU (Asus Strix GTX 1080) when HDR is enabled in windows. If HDR is disabled then the GPU will go back down to 135 MHz at idle and stay there, but when I enable HDR the GPU will drop to its idle clock until I move my mouse, which causes it to shoot all the way up to full clock speed and cause idle temps to be around 50C. I originally thought it was something to do with my monitors being 144hz and not allowing the GPU to idle, but I have lowered my main monitor to 120Hz and my second to 60Hz, but the problem persists. Does anyone know if this is expected behaviour or if something is wrong?

Thanks
