    @joluke Im looking to give modded drivers a try, but can you recommend the latest one over say a previous version? Im concerned about performance gimping on nvidias part, though maybe thats not justified? What can I do with the modded drivers to get more performance out of a 1070 mobile?

    To be honest I don't have issues with this latest release but I'd go for 431.15 if i were u and stay on it. There issues with this driver with Gears 5 but apart from that, it works good for all games i play (dont play gears 5). Give it a go and if you have problems or any other issue, simply run DDU and revert to a previous version. Personally I'm in the latest without any issues. As for performance in a 1070, just install the drivers and set its performance to maximum performance in nvidia control panel and that's it, enjoy it

    Okay, do you have any other recommendations by chance? Is doing DDU first necessary before installing the modified drivers along with any necessary steps/instructions? You can modify MSI afterburner for instance if one does not have it by afterburners default programming, but that didn't make much of a difference for me. Some people have said they have noticed far less stutter and better overclocking Headroom with modded drivers. Do you know anything about this? Had to edit this because speech to text sucks.

    Never heard of the benchmark issue and I don't run it, sorry I can't help with it. Apart from that, reboot into recovery mode on windows and run DDU. Reboot back to normal windows and press Automatic on installer and it should install the drivers without any issues just with 2 reboots in between to disable drivers signature check but apart from that you should be good to go

    Okay, so when I did the second reboot after an automatic installation, it installed, but literally nothing happened. Afterburner doesnt show anything, and DDU says its there, but there doesnt appear to be any way to read whats going on with it. I cant even access my 3D manager settings. So what did I miss?

    Disable driver signature and run installer again and this time press DIRECT and enable driver signature and reboot. Happened to me too. But do that you should be good to go

    Is there a special way to install this? I tried to do it over the top of a regular installation and my card reported having no driver installed after boot.

    You need to disable driver signature enforcement before attempting to install any non-WHQL driver.

    I used the "automatic" mode that allegedly did this for me - does that not work in Windows 10?
