    My max game stable wth 350.05 is 1569/8000. Anyone else have issues with previous overclocking and these drivers. Just asking... Not complaining.

    I don't understand the logic here, since when "more efficient and better" means the same performance (around 1% difference ?) but demanding a higher quality GPU/better PSU/cooler room temperature and all that jazz ?? as I said I can push the 347.88's no problem with overclocking on top of the factory overclocking and get the same performance (at least during the time the 352.86 would not crash) so in no way these new 352.86 drivers are "more efficient", on the contrary, they are quite sensitive to things they shouldn't and crippling factory overclocked cards, how is this "efficient" ? why do 347.88's and other sets offer almost identical performance but without crashing even if they're giving room for even more stable overclocking ?

    I know it's lame, but have you tried ie11 instead of chrome?

    Tried these and get the same results as every driver after 347.71 (magic drivers for me) I don't overclock at all. Dying Light, GTA5, BF4 all run choppier (GTA 5 Especially) with the newer sets for my 970? Don't know why this is but the difference is drastic.

    Not a problem as I'm having no issues in any of these games with the older sets but I feel like I'm missing out on optimizations for the new games i.e Batman, Witcher 3

    Something is wrong with this set of drivers.

    Had my FIRST ever "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" with this videocard (970), while playing Bad Company 2 MP, in dx(auto) mode, meaning dx11, I assume. When game resumed, there was a black screen on and had to end task the app.

    Never had any problem with any driver since I got this card (november 2014).

    (no OC on GPU, DDU used, obviously)

    This driver is exactly the same as above but with support for The Witcher 3 no improvement in any of the latest titles released to date.

    You are not the only one with this issue.I had a stable overclock profile which was solid in all my games with my GTX 980 and since I installed these drivers I have had to reduce my overclock. Something is not right with these drivers

    Yup soo much THIS!! Everyone is soo quick to blame drivers.. when the real culprit it often faulty hardware. Or pushing an overclock CPU or GPU too high. Hell even factory overclocked cards are sometimes just pushed too high above the default clock speeds for reference cards.


    I was having some game crashing problems in games which started about a month ago. At first I thought it was drivers and I tried almost 8 different drivers versions going back to drivers which had previously been stable. Some crashed more than others. But it seemed very inconsistent, some drivers would even allow for slightly higher overclocks before crashing.

    But did some more testing and tested my cards individually. I very quickly found one of my 2 cards was causing all of my problems. Not sure what caused one of the cards to fail... maybe it borderline good to start with but 10-11 months of overclocking caused it to fail.

    I RMA'd my 2nd card and the replacement card arrived on Friday... back too 100% stable again with both cards boosting up to 1228Mhz without issue! Before I could only manage about 1124Mhz maximum before I was running into artifacts or crashing games.

    Sucks having to RMA faulty hardware but saved me a lot of headache having to deal with game crashes!!

    So given the fact that I've not had a single crash up until I installed these drivers, 4x in the space of a couple of hours versus ZERO before the drivers but it's some how still my fault for having a unstable PC?

    The drivers are dodgy, a lot of people are having issues. A guy on nvidias website said he had the same issue and it was caused by the drivers/afterburner making the GPU boost to over 1000core 1000 mem and instantly making the driver crash.

    I have no stability issue with this one so far using the same clocks as with previous sets on my 680s SLi. I didn't run any benchmark yet, but all the games I've tried were as smooth as they should be. No crash, no stuttering..

    Just got home from work and will give these a sturdy testing on my super clean, super cold PC, will tell if there's a real problem or not with this set.

    Installed fine, running test now...... brb when i have some real life data to share.
