Sierra 16B2657 Conundrum
So we are getting more than a couple emails regarding the mismatch between 10.12.1 update from Apple showing build "16B2657" and Nvidia providing a driver that matches to "16B2555".
I can confirm that the mod listed below will work. Just change the "OS required" string to match to "16" and it works fine. (You will need to disable CSR)

I found info from someone on reddit that there may be a bug in that nvidia preference pane (not switching to nvidia driver from OS X default graphics driver). If you download/install OpenGL Extensions Viewer from the App store, it does show what driver is really loading.

I have the proper builds installed, but my problem is that my 5,1 won't properly sleep, and once it tries to sleep it won't awaken. I have to restart.

Did some looking around and found out that Compubench 2.0 is the problem. It will crash the driver.
