My card (Asus RTX 3070) runs at constant max power, clock and memory settings. This makes it noisy and is wasting my money. I don't really know where to start figuring out why or how to stop it. Can anyone point me in the correct direction?

Weird. Upon further investigation, I discovered something called 'host' in task manager that was using 90% of my GPU. I terminated it and everything is back to normal.

I am slightly suspicious of what my son may have put on his account on this computer, but I know how to make it stop and can follow the trail if it starts again.
