    Yeah when you click on downloads on your site it says 185.63. but when you click the actual download link you get the 185.68.

    Hmmm.....I dropped back to Side's 182.08's they ROCK!!

    These drivers are the first Side drivers I couldn't run?? Boot was way slow, as was shutdown. It was taking more than a minute. IQ seemed OK. Speed was OK but everything was "sticky."

    I doubt that I did anything wrong as I change drivers like socks!

    Probably didn't fit my EVGA 8800GT 512 SC.

    I'll look to the next release. Meantime, you all might re-visit the 182.08's and have another look-see there. They are excellent!

    As always...thanks for your efforts Side :)

    Yes, I always, always do just that! I may try these again, just in case. Really odd?

    Thanks for the reply!

    Really you like the 182.08's they were so so for me. Of course they were the best at the time, Also on a side note. and i didn't mean for there to be a pun in that last sentence. Anyways on a side note. beta 165.68 non side mod, my computer was messing up the screen really bad, wouldn't go past 8 bit color and such. i was very hesitant to try sides driver, but now i don't think things could get better. Also i have Nhancer 2.5 beta 2.The only game i play is COD5 so maybe there would be other differences if i re installed crysis, BF2142..... ...... ......

    Question for SideBand:
    Can you tell me what you actually do for tweaking your drivers? As i find it a bit hard to believe you even tweak them yourself seeing your release schedule popping out drivers same day / 1 day after nVidia release.

    1. How do you encode/decode your nvidia reg settings (i'm sure you don't do it yourself? You use RivaTuner for your tweaks?)
    2. Do you even tweak on a driver by driver base or do you just copy & paste the same tweaked settings into each driver
    3. Do you aim on Speed or IQ

    No pun intended in all of this, but I'm asking for a colluage here at work as i build him a custom driver but don't want to keep building him custom drivers. I might recommend sideband drivers to him (as DNA-nVidia drivers aren't public yet) if you could enlighten me a bit in your process.

    185.68 official beta drivers only support 9, 100 and 200 series Nvidia cards.

    How comes they work with my 8800 gtx? Did you add compatibility for 8 series cards via nv_disp.inf or?

    Any reply would be greatly apreciated ^_^

    EDIT: they work fine as well. My 3DMark06 score improved by 200pts.

    Odd......KillerSneak, aren't you the guy that runs DNA drivers? If memory serves me correctly you have tended to attract a lot of attention over the years for less than completely honorable driver activities, correct?
    (I'm asking not condemning here)

    Side...good cooks keep their recipe ingredients very close to the vest....

    It seem he try's (keyword here) to make performance drivers, speed over IQ.

    Another aircool has reviewed them and found them not as good as other modded drivers so............

    It seems to be a copy and paste job to me

    Hi, this post was made from work, by my co-worker. I haven't done DNA-nVidia drivers for some months so i said he should take a look here. What i forgot to tell was that he shouldn't post under my account lol (from behind my working PC)

    i tested side´s drivers especially the 185.20 and if they would not give me more points i still prefer them for all other optimizations,like no nvdispdriverhelperservice,only 20mb small,no physx,......

    nobody said these are performance drivers-or?and 3dmark is more then testing different drivers.
    run 3dmark with same driver 3 times and tell me there is no difference in points?

    if its just copy and paste why don´t you test it yourself´s-i tried and no!

    thanks sideband for your work and effort.

    have a positive day to all.

    Pretty sure I recall sideband stating somewhere that the idea behind his drivers is pretty much to bias towards boosting performance over enhancing IQ (in general), along with streamlining them to make them more convenient and hassle free to utilize.
    Ive used plently of his builds from even before they were known on this board and have been pretty satisfied. Not to mention that hardly anyone is actively releasing drivers anymore. Its nice to see someone still puttin in the effort for the benefit of the community. :eyes:
