GPU Will not exit idle state (135-270mhz)

I recently bought a used EVGA GTX 960 which, to my knowledge, had never been overclocked. When I monitor the GPU using GPU-z or EVGA Precision XOC, I see the same story, the card will remain at 135 mhz even if the load on the GPU is at 100%. I can trick the card into clocking all the way up (1300mhz) by using the k-boost function in precision XOC, but as soon as I open any program that is graphics intensive, the gpu goes back down to 202 mhz. I have tried updating the drivers, updating the power plan in both windows and Invidia control panel, as well as using the second PCI-e slot on my motherboard, nothing seems to be helping and I'm getting slightly weary of playing Rocket League at 12 fps. Thanks for any help in advance.

Try reinstalling the Graphics drivers, perform a clean installation this time by wiping off the previously installed drivers and then try using the K-boost function/overclocking mode.
 
Temps?

For a clean install of your GPU drivers follow this,
First of all you need to TOTALLY remove all the old drivers. Use this link.

Note:
Select the respective company(i.e Nvidia or AMD) drivers to be uninstalled.
Use clean and restart option.
And then install the new drivers after rebooting.
