Changes in display driver 280.19 and higher may result in the GPU voltages reported by a graphics card diagnostic utility to differ from previous older drivers.  This is expected behavior.  Older NVIDIA display drivers may have reported incorrect voltages which is now corrected in newer drivers.  The changes in the new 280.19 display driver does not change the actual voltages of the GPU; only what is reported by a graphics card diagnostic utility to a user.
