    Oh my god Infa! thank you so much! I think i'll stick with the 177.72; it hasn't crashed on me yet, (like the other 177.xx drivers have) and Crysis runs pretty well and looks really good.

    Exactly :) it doesnt even exist, so you cant even start the CP .. sometimes it gets like this with beta drivers... i think the .66 are good also, so stick to that if you want CP.. :)
    i never change anything there anyway, so i can last a few days.

    Thanks for the heads up for you who thanks me :) that you appreciate my work makes me keep it updated, will post same results list with updated drivers when they get here, and will use rivatuner to register temps during tests.

    cheers, and have a nice evening.

    There's something up with your setup :3eyes: I have the control panel and it's working fine.... it even finds more games when I click "show only those found on your computer". I had problems with that with other drivers.... but there's always the manual add button.

    Yeah, maybe its just my setup.

    these drivers vary so much from person to person how it works, some gets crashes some get more fps some get no CP.. etc .etc :)

    so far no crashes... working good.

    CP works just fine. No problems so far.

    Dunno man works just fine on mine, we have nearly identical computers. Only difference I can see between this and 177.66 is that digital vibrance can now be changed while in SLi mode (finally).
