    Had my first crash today with these? :( I started up Dead Space, and then the damn thing happened. Going back to 186.39.. :(

    One minor infrequent problem that's happened so far is the downclocking to 400/300 instead of the lowest 300/100. I just got out of playing CoD and now it's stuck like that idling, but it will go back to normal 3D clocks if I startup a game. Rebooting fixes this though.

    Actually tried Dead space with the 186.39 driver, the same crash happened. So this isnt propably the drivers at fault, could be something with my system again. Or the game?

    Installed them. IQ is perfect. Tried COD4, Portal and WIC so far. All run very smooth. Going to keep them.

    Ok...that got my GPU temp reading back, and it downclocks to 300/600 but once I wake the computer up and am on the Windows 7 desktop, the clocks jump to 3d levels...is it supposed to do that or is it supposed to stay at 300/600 until I enter a 3d game?

    After Hybernation they go to max here for some seconds and clock down to lowest 2Dclock. Win7RC1 german, GTX260²
    But all these behaviour in detail seems to vary a lot and seems to have many variables i am not aware of even on similar systems.
    So from reading thru the net everybody really has to try for himself.
    The only pretty certain thing i know is that Win7 german + 190.xx driver after 190.15 messes up the clocking, here it jumps like crazy when doing nothing, at others it never downclocks after 3D or simply downclocks to 2D even under full stress.
    From a customer point of view i feel pretty confused atm....
    One thing that makes me wonder is the regular reports about crashing in games or this "snapier desktop" things. I can´t remember having games crashes cause of driver swaps, maybe back a while i forgot but it never were the drivers but a to high overclock or alike.

    Make sure you are not forcing AA in the NV CP , this crashes Dead Space for me every time. set it to Application Controlled.

    If thats not it I have no idea what else it could be , I have no other problems with Dead Space.

    Ive never used nhancer before and i also heard it was broken in the 190's drivers. So im gonna try it out.Which is the best version to download?

    I get better performance from these drivers

    Are these better than 186.18? Those were the last best drivers for me.

    I think so! These and 186.39 are the best drivers for me.

    Best driver so far for 18x.xx. At least for me, no random BSOD. Tried with Stalker:SoC and Fallout 3.
