Is this a new trend on all drivers threads? Can we all stop with the "drivers destroyed this" thing? User issue is at fault 99% of the time. The only ways a driver could damage a card, is 1) Fan issues (not spinning etc) and 2) if it modified the clocks (but this could also be caused by user applied OC) Rule of thumb for me is, disable user OC before installation of new drivers. Literally takes 5 seconds to do, but I bet most don't.
