My question is that it doesn't seem to save my underclocked settings when I reboot, and I have to manually change it every day. Is there any way to save these settings or to create a script that will do it for me(The main fix works perfectly and I never need to change it, just the underclocking part)?
Add the following command to your session startup:
nvidia-settings -a GPUOverclockingState=1 -a GPU2DClockFreqs=200,300 -a GPU3DClockFreqs=500,600
Adjust the 2D and 3D clock frequencies to your desired values.
