    Hm I assumed the de-bloated drivers would actually result in less overhead for the card and improve temps. I'll try it out, for some reason reva statistics server lately is unusable due to cycling crashes of the hook etc so kinda hard to monitor temps while playing now though.

    Looking to get back into this, has anyone done anysort of benchmarking to determine of performance advantage to regular drivers?

    XtremeG tweaks aren't used unless you click the button.

    I clicked it and I have confirmed that XG's tweaks do in fact increase temperatures by 3-4 on the GPU, which in turn increases also the CPU by 5-6 due to the shared heatsink on my Clevo. Reinstalled the driver without XG and temps immediately dropped.

    Ok, did you get better performance with XG enabled or did you loose performance?

    Minimum fps improved a bit in some games, but I'm currently playing Ni no Kuni Remastered, which didn't see any changes to its horrible engine stuttering. So the palleted textures/extra buffering and other tweaks don't seem to help with any of that. CPU was dipping into throttling in Guild Wars 2, which doesn't usually happen, but due to the higher GPU temperature and shared heatsink it seems it was enough to push it into reds. Was reaching 97C in spikes and maintaining around 95 most of the time which is not something I'm comfortable with on an undervolted stock clocks cpu. This is at 4k resolution though. So I imagine it will be much much lower at 1080p but I don't play at lower than native resolutions.

    Kinda off topic but is there just folders I can delete to debloat in the nvidia drivers package once I extract it? Win7 latest for my card are still 441.20 and was going to update for the jedi game, I'm on 441.12. I usually delete the nvtelemetry folder but I probably still have leftover stuff bc when I had a quadro card it was 425.xxx and in my c/nvidia folder it still has that folder, I can't delete it either. DDU doesn't see it bc I've since uninstalled with it but it only did the 436.xxx driver. I need optimus.

    Edit: Link seems to show all that I'll try it

    Keep these only:

    upload_2019-11-26_2-12-27.png

    And edit: Setup.cfg and in the bottom remove these lines:

    <file name="${{EulaHtmlFile}}"/>
    <file name="${{FunctionalConsentFile}}"/>
    <file name="${{PrivacyPolicyFile}}"/>

    Save the Setup.cfg (You can use notepad++ to edit it) and thats it... debloated drivers :)

    This method removes the crappy geforce experience so you'll need to search for updates manually... which is the main point after all

    I did the procedure in the link and it worked fine for 441.20 win7. Only thing I'd add is that I use optimus so I kept the optimus folder intact in the extracted driver package upon install. Can't say it helped the jedi game it still stutters here and there even on the low settings and 768p.
