Not the most stable software, particularly as it doesn't register settings like 'start minimised'.
Anyway, it starts transparent now. Anyone else come across this?

I am having that same issue. I'd love to know how to get it to stop.
I often remote into that desktop. When I do it shows as light gray instead of transparent, but the font is also light gray so I can't read anything.
If I close and reopen, then it sometimes returns to normal.
I'm using a 1080ti on Windows 7 pro with the latest game ready drivers.

It sounds like GPU Tweak has some basic issues with doing basic stuff. Starting minimized and actually being able to be seen are pretty basic. Is this a recent happening? If so, have you tried a previous version?

My initial advice would be to get Afterburner or Precision. They work on nearly all AIB manufactured boards.

I've tried what few versions there are available with the same result. I'm not OCing my RX580 and for OSDs I use Afterburner anyway. But it would have been nice to have a widget for temps etc that actually worked from Asus.
For the time being I've ditched it until it's fixed.
