    Update: Uninstalled Drivers, since i got like 4 different blue screens on different games. All of them related to nv*.* files.

    Rolled back to 259.96.

    Exactly! It's the first time ever I get BSOD on this damn PC. Not good.

    Also it completely ****ed up with my aero.. my aero was completely gone from my PC!

    They can't be official betas from Nvidia. They're just awful.

    Just tried these drivers, and Crysis seems like it's gained some FPS, Metro 2033 lost a few FPS, and Mafia 2 seems smoother and with better utilization on my dedicated GTS 250 PhysX card..

    Definitely a step in the right direction, so can't wait for the official release next week :banana:

    Do these drivers fix the fan speed hardware polling problem?
    In which you would get stuttering proportional to hardware polling period if you had a program like Precision or Afterburner reading the speed of the card's fan?

    Like it is discussed here:
    http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=384534

    I just got to know about this problem, as I was still on 197 drivers because I was still looking for alternatives to nHancer.

    EDIT: Meh, I guess it doesn't matter as long as fan speed doesn't show in OSD.

    That's what I was thinking. Things can sometimes mess up during an install. Try again and see if it happens again.

    Seriously I wouldn't recommended these drivers. Waaaaaaay too many crashes, and I'm not the only one. We don't even know where the hell they come from. It has serious weird low level driver crashes. (aero not working anymore, youtube crash, Amnesia crashed with severe critical driver access error, BSOD)

    Remove the damn links from this thread. It's the very first time I'm totally against a driver.

    Get good GPU utilization in BFBC2: around 70%. Gets to the 90% only when FPS are very high. I take it the reason is when CPU isn't bottlenecking perhaps.

    L4D2 works fine. No more SLI stuttering in last stage of Parish.

    No, since the way profiles are handled has changed since 2xx drivers. Gotta wait for a new nHancer release. Meanwhile I'm using Nvidia Inspector and Geforce_SLI_Profile_Tool.exe
