I’m hoping I can get some help here as a last resort after all my efforts and searching. I cannot seem to perform any sort of OC’ing to my 1070 ti running with the 387.22 driver as any attempt I make to update xorg.conf gets overwritten at boot.
I’ve tried to set coolbits via:
$ sudo nvidia-xconfig -a --cool-bits=28 --allow-empty-initial-configuration
Reboot, and it seems my /etc/X11/xorg.conf always gets overwritten after reboot to the following:
Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "layout" Screen 0 "nvidia" Inactive "intel" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "intel" Driver "modesetting" BusID "PCI:0@0:2:0" Option "AccelMethod" "None" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "intel" Device "intel" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "nvidia" Driver "nvidia" BusID "PCI:1@0:0:0" Option "ConstrainCursor" "off" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "nvidia" Device "nvidia" Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration" "on" Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "CRT" EndSection
I’ve also tried fiddling with the gpu-manager as it seems that was overwriting the xorg.conf file.

Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!
