    I'm using EVGA Precision with the 185.81, and can set my fan speed without any trouble. Try reinstalling Precision.

    It seems that this delay only happens on SLI systems with win7 RC.

    So the Windows7 drivers aren't WDM1.1? Just good old WDM1.0?

    What is the difference between the Vista and Windows7 drivers then?
    Have nVIDIA just re-named their Vista drivers into Windows7 just to make Windows7 people like me go haywire for nothing?

    after having massive problems with all the 185.XX series drivers, I would like to report the following:

    After a fresh format with Vista SP2 RTM X64 Integrated, I installed these drivers. They work great! No problems so far and I am getting noticeably better performance in Crysis and Company of heroes than I ever have.

    Even a regular upgrade to SP2 from SP1 in windows did not have this effect at all. Still mad problems. But now, after a fresh installation I don't have any of the issues that kept me from installing the 185.XX series.

    Really they are WDDM1.1. You can see it running dxdiag.exe.

    Does anyone notice any shadow bugs with this driver, and also older drivers with the new Riddick game, Assault on Dark Athena?

    XP 64 user here. These are by far the best drivers so far for me. The 185.20's were what I kept going back to up until now. The 185 series seem real hit and miss. But when you get one that works with your build, it's a beautiful thing.

    On Vista x64, FarCry 2 lost 1 FPS (DX10) for me running everything on Ultra using these beta over 182.50. Not a big deal.

    However, on Mirror's Edge (just started playing, what a luck) there is a definite increase in performance with AA set to 4X now in areas with lots of geometry (everything else set to Highest on 1280x1024). Cool drivers as far as I am concerned.

    epic drivers for me, installed them 30 minutes ago and tested HAWX, Farcry2, Crysis and a few more games on my older rig with a 8800gtx card.

    1) nvidia fixed the monitor misdetection which is what worried me and made me go back to 182.50 whql

    2) in HAWX i'm seeing more details, more fog in the distance, more chaffs being released during the timedemo and more stuff, performance is at least 10fps more than 182xx for me.

    3) FC2 performance is now same as 182.50 (it used to be lower with 185.xx for me)

    4) card seem to be throttling fine with the new beta drivers

    5) in Crysis Warhead i've gained 4-5fps with AA enabled as advertised by nvidia, so far so good.

    6) got a little problem in Fallout 3 where some object were flashing in the distance which never happened with the 182.50 drivers.

    7) Grid and a few others games were all fine.

    at this point, keepers.
