    I never had this problem.

    I am on iCafe 340.72 now but keep crashing out in Heaven 4.0. Even OCCT GPU test gives me problems now. (It just stops and goes back to the menu).

    Those crashes in Heaven ALSO happen without overclock (MSI afterburner) which I had otherwise running stable for more than a year.

    It's a GTX 660 TI on Win8.1

    Anyone else experiencing those problems?

    PS: It's also no heat issue since I just yesterday cleaned the heatsink and applied a new layer of MX4, temps are good, sometimes Heaven craps out when the card is still in the mid 60s.

    Go back to WHQL and re-test with stock clocks. If the problem is gone, then it is the new driver causing problems.

    Unstable overclock. Heaven is very susceptible to that

    When Heven4 came out they changed to tessellation load and it much harder on OC . If you run Valley verse Heven 4 you find you can OC more in valley .

    I don't even test with tessellation at extreme anymore, leave that on normal .
    No game uses that kind of tessellation load .

    I was thinking faulty overclock too, but he said without overclock it happens also

    I really don't know what it was, I reinstalled heaven and then it worked.
