My System Specs

Default Afterburner keeping cpu freq up and not letting dGPU "sleep"

I am not sure when this started happening, but I have been tweaking my Y530 with 1050Ti for the last while. I just noticed that the 1050Ti freq in afterburner is reporting completely as expected when gaming etc, however, when browsing the internet or doing nothing the 1050Ti freq is pulsing up and down, and my CPU freq stays a few hundred mhz higher than base idle. As soon as I exit afterburner cpu freq settles down to full idle.

Anyone have this happen before? Known fix?
