    Same problem here.
    I have this problem also with Crysis 2 - which is a DX 11 game too.

    I agree, stuttering issues, bugs, heat issues, too much hassle. I gave it up and never looked back.

    When I turned my PC on tonight I entered the BIOS, dropped my CPU multiplier from 19X to 18X (3.8 GHz to 3.6 GHz), left the voltages as they were then booted into Windows and first updated MSI Afterburner and NVIDIA Inspector then, finally, ran Lost Planet 2 DX11 Test B. It passed successfully with an A-rating. 30 minutes later I ran it again to check it wasn't a fluke and it too passed. It's too easy to say for sure yet but it looks like my CPU wasn't stable at 3.8 GHz after despite having no issues for the last three months since I increased it from 3.6 GHz.

    I've now reverted back to a 19X multiplier but increased the CPU PLL Voltage from 1.84 V to 1.86 V and the QPI/DRAM Voltage from 1.300 V to 1.325 with the CPU Voltage left at 1.29375 V. I'm just waiting for some stuff to finish downloading and then I'll run Test B again.

    Great! I didn't expected GTX560 Ti improvements after 6xx series releases. Though it might be that GK104 has more to do with GF114 than anything perhaps...

    You seem like one of the heroes of this forum but allow me to comment on OCing for a sec (off topic sorry). I got my i7 930 stable at 4.29 but to go from 4.1 to 4.29 (I has just bought a nocutura and expected to be cool enough to hit 4.5 - ha!) I needed about 10 additional hours of trial and error. I had to bump the qpi voltage WAY up. 1.4v was fine at 4.1ghz but I needed something like 1.55v at 4.29ghz not to mention I needed way more core voltage. Also clock skew had a dramatic effect on both stability and GFlops score for IBT. You should be able to hit 3.8 with little problem even with C0 but you really have to keep a log on paper and IBT the hell out of it. (I had to kill HT by the way to hit those speeds - but I had 3.87ghz and HT with a super crappy closed loop water cooler so its very doable).

    QPI is most important believe it or not. If I'm not mistaken I was at 1.35 or 1.4 qpi volts when I was at 3.87ghz HT/on. My ram sets the qpi to 1.4 by default. And don't believe people that say you can run high qpi - just keep it under 1.5 (1.6 is really the cutoff).

    This is clearly faster driver. Everything seems to run better (thanks to v-sync fix) I also gained over 200 points in 3DMark11. I now get P10230.

    Test B ran fine at 3.8 GHz using a QPI/DRAM Voltage of 1.325 V and a CPU PLL of 1.86 V, i.e. it did NOT freeze my PC. I'll test it again later on just to make sure it wasn't a one-off though.

    And thanks for kind words. :D

    Are you the same guy that posted this freeze on Nvidias forum thread ?

    If yes you should make clear that this is no issue on Nvidias side but was your fault in analyzing the problems correctly.
    And hopefully you understand that you doesn't help with these overly fast interpretations and posts of your systems problems in the Driver threads.
    Its immense noise and helps no one and would be just a waste of time trying to reproduce, also other user like to refer such things and some seem to use such post as yours even to justify how bad they think the Driver is which is total nonsense and again helps no one and is just as bad as posting such issues without proper analyzing and testing to fast in the first place and the thread is not there to ask about general system stability issues but to find real driver issues.

    "overly fast interpretations" is what you are doing right now. He made it clear in a subsequent post that it was an CPU OC failure. Furthermore, Hodgson owns like every game under the sun and tirelessly tests them with each new driver release. Usually he is testing his games at someone else's request! You must have seen his army squirrel before (if you spend any time in these driver release forums on guru3d you would). He's been a pretty solid resource for info on new drivers. (that's all I'm gonna say - don't want to derail this post any more than we have already).

    hey everyone!

    I just bought my first Nvidia cards (Coming from ATI 4870). Two GTX 670's I plan on putting in SLI to power 4 monitors.


    I've been reading the thread, but have seen mixed reviews. Are these set of drivers the ones you guys recommend to install for best performance? I read someone mentioned drivers 302.59 as being better. Would any of you say that's true?

    I plan on playing BF3 and usually like multi tasking. I'm definitely overclocking my 3930K.

    Thanks again!!

    If you don't have the Civ V latest DLC (or if you can wait to play it until the certified drivers come out) and you don't play the latest DLC for Deus Ex (which still should be ok in game) you should be fine (and you'll benefit from the performance improvements) I haven't tested with witcher 2 but someone had said something about that game too - I just got an ssd and I haven't reinstalled it yet. Max payne 3 plays great, so does BF3. Don't worry about OCing your CPU - it won't be affected by your GPU driver. Just make sure you do it right and write down all the changes you've made along the way and use IBT or prime95 to test your OC with (IBT is more rigorous).

    I can confirm this happens. Civilization V crashes at the very start (when begins to play the intro videos, but also if SkipIntroVideos=1)

    The DirectX9 version loads normally (at least to the main menu, i didn't start a game)

    Had to revert to 301.42 and all is fine again.

    304.48 causes this: (Event Log entry follows)

    Faulting application name: CivilizationV_DX11.exe, version: 1.0.1.511, time stamp: 0x4ee9bec2
    Faulting module name: nvwgf2um.dll, version: 9.18.13.448, time stamp: 0x4fd62653
    Exception code: 0xc0000005
    Fault offset: 0x00545a70
    Faulting process id: 0x4b4
    Faulting application start time: 0x01cd4f376cf83325
    Faulting application path: H:\Games\Sid Meier's Civilization V\CivilizationV_DX11.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\nvwgf2um.dll
    Report Id: ace269d9-bb2a-11e1-b6ab-005056c00008


    Also, I first tried to reinstall the drivers doing a Clean Install (I also installed them this way) and I got a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD (that never happened before , and memory modules are new -just working over a month- and tested with no problems)

    That fix only works for a little while, every time you go to hack a computer, sell weapons, initiate conversation etc it goes back down to 1 frame and stays there. It only runs smooth when you're walking/running around and even then it sometimes drops to 1fps.

    I see, what happens if you play in windowed maximized mode? Does it still lag to 1fps if you do all that stuff?

    Does it flicker when you are not using it? Or does it just flat out disappear after a few seconds of not using it?
