Hello.
Does anybody also have this problem with Gigabyte 2070 super Gaming OC 3x 8GB? On the nvidia 471.68 drivers (or other new drivers before that) it doesn't boost above 1605 MHz and refuses to apply OC (even when in fact I don't change the clocks just hit apply in afterburner or revert to defaults), then screen goes black and returns to normal again. I have found a driver that works and it's 466.11 but some drivers before that also have this problem, and that's the only relatively new stable driver that I have found.
BTW, I have always cleaned with DDU before every driver reinstall so nothing is corrupted.

Anyways here is a topic on nvidia forums adressing this exact issue and it's a year old: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/385194/boost-clock-of-certain-rtx-2070-super-cards-will-b/?topicPage=6
(there is a temporary workaround listed there but it doesn't work)
