    Flawless install:
    Uninstalled all drivers
    Rebooted once
    Ran driver sweeper by guru3d (no installer)
    rebooted into safe mode
    Ran driver sweeper by guru3d (no installer)
    search inf directory for nvidia display within files
    rebooted
    installed 15.23
    rebooted
    installed 180.42
    rebooted
    Reinstalled DirectX Aug2008 Offline Package

    Adjust image settings with preview: Manage 3d settings (my config)
    Anisotropic Filtering - 16x
    Anti-Aliasing Gamma Correction - On
    Anti-Aliasing Mode - "Enhance the application setting" (Seen major performance drops in games when using "override any application setting").
    Anti-Aliasing - 4x
    Anti-Aliasing Transparency - Super-Sampling
    Multi Display/Mixed GPU Configuration - Single Display Performance Mode
    Threaded Optimization - Auto
    Triple Buffering - On
    V-Sync - Always Off (I always get horrible frames when I use v-sync so i force it off, on all of my games)

    All the rest of the global settings are the default 180.42 driver settings.

    Is there anythingelse I can do to get better image quality?

    I can also confirm 180.42 restores digital vibrance.

    yay! they are MUCH better then 180.10 on 9800gx2, all option in CP are avilable + they seems faster then 178.26 in vantage at least didnt try any games yet tho, also sli+multiple monitors still doesnt work because monitors are theoretacly connected on different cards...

    No, same thing here. I guess that NVIDIA changed the way for controlling fan (and monitoring fan speed).
