Hi guys,

Intro
As the title says I started getting screen flickering whenever my GTX 760 hits level 0 power mode. The problem only exist in the Nvidia driver 384. I was unable to reproduce the issue when downgrading to driver version 381. I tried lowering the refresh rate to 60 Hz but with no effect. Tested this on the LTS kernel for arch but no difference there. As you can see in the attached video, whenever the power profile gets to level 0 the screen starts to flicker.
This bug looks very similar to the one discussed here: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1016162/linux/occasional-solid-color-flashing-flickering-with-gtx970-on-384-47/1. only the problem is said to be fixed on the latest driver.

System Info
I am running Arch Linux 64 Bit with the Gnome DE but also tried KDE where the problem is also present. As mentioned above I am currently on Nvidia driver version 384.59 with kernel 4.12.4. I have my system hooked up to a Asus 144 Hz 1080P monitor via Display Port cable.

How to reproduce
You can reproduce the bug by running driver 384 with GTX 760 card and setting the PowerMizer to Auto or Adaptive. When the system stabilizes and the Power profile gets to level 0 the flickering then begins.
