Well...good to know I'm not the only one but kind of disturbing that's it's happening with some 8 series cards. After reading Daenjo's post I assumed that this effects the 7 series and lower chips and maybe be easier to diagnose for Nvidia. Hope they fix it, I have faith... it worked in the 180.x drivers so they just need to back paddle a bit
I ran the nvidia-bug-report.sh script but all it logged was my kernel version...which I already stated here.
But here are if it makes things any easier I'll just post it here...
