    To join me about these drivers and AC Odyssey game. I had a stable fps of 45+ before these drivers. Now I can not pass 27. These drivers has bad work with ACO.
    Need for fix.

    after long testing and gaming these drivers are behaving like they should

    Tbh, I had the grass flicker in farcry 5 with the 411.70 drivers. These latest cured that.
    As for higher or lower benches, that's just for comparison between drivers. Games wont notice much from that besides game fixes.
    But it's always nice to see higher scores with newer drivers, or more fps etc etc. I for one wouldn't want it the other way around.

    For everyone getting CTDs, BSODs, and other crazy issues with the 416 series drivers I was able to go from rock solid stable zero issues to everything is f***ed back to to everything is rock solid with zero issues by a simple single increment bump of voltage on my CPU. I have absolutely no idea why this would be the case but I had zero issues until the 416 driver series came out which started me crashing out of games and my event viewer started showing a lot of critical issues; all only after I upgraded to the 416 series drivers. I was fiddling around with my RAM trying to tighten the timings up when I noticed that my previous rock solid stable settings were no longer stable (this is the same time I discovered all the critical errors in the system reliability history) and bumping my CPU voltage up one notch stabilized my system and all my games. Like I said, zero issues before I installed the 416.xx series drivers while something in them changed how my system was fundamentally using my hardware and it all came down to my CPU needing just a little drop more voltage. I can't explain any of this but could some people try this out and see if it fixes their problems?

    Same thing happened to me. I was getting CTDs in BF V. Ran Intel Burn Test and i wasn't stable. I was able to pass 10 times the Very High setting and suddenly i wasn't.

    Well @-Tj- reported similar findings on previous page, worth a shot I suppose.

    Gonna raise CPUV and SOC by a bit to see how it goes.
    Plus I may have had the same RTSS OSD possible conflict with this particular driver as I use RTSS for fps limiting in Witcher 3 and also check the OSD every now and then.

    Hold on a second, are some of you saying 41x.xx are affecting stability even in CPU stress test and not just GPU heavy workloads?

    Do you use Raster or vector?


    I used default vector and it happened now again at 399.24, but after almost 2hrs.. I kept stealth mode on from before @ 416.81.. sound started to clip then 3-4sec later game freezed and ctd. lol I just don't have luck with this game.. xD




    @Mott
    How much are you talking about, 0.010v or more?

    Ok I went all out on testing this driver, I did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro each time swapped driver, here's what I came up with:

    To my surprise it's fine, but when switching back to my main everyday install the FPS tanked again, but once I quit the Corsair Link software (I have the RGB fan kit) all my problems went away with 416.81, where I can run 399.24 fine with the Corsair software installed.
    Strange, I have no idea why that would be causing a issue, but it's what I saw.
    I don't need Corsair link running all the time as the RGB profile is saved to the controller box (whatever corsair called it).

    I uninstalled iCUE yesterday due to system instability and rolled back my GPU drivers. I went back to Corsair Link, much better and faster! 50mb installer vs. 300mb installer! iCUE still doesn't even show the max temps, just the current. There's no quick right-click selection on the tray icon either. iCUE hogs around 4% CPU usage, 2% per process. System boots much quicker since going back to Link.

    The tests that I started to fail had NOTHING to do with the GPU whatsoever. I knew I had gaming instability as my games started to crash randomly, but not enough to really care too much since the 416.xx series of drivers; I was considering going back to 399.24 as those were the absolute best that I have used with my GTX 1080 but figured this out before I ended up doing that. I am in my masters and I was doing some hardcore procrastination one day where I thought I would try out the new Ryzen DRAM calculator to tighten up my timings and I couldn't get anywhere with it. After a while I just decided to run a memory test on my normal settings that I had proven beyond a shadow of a doubt were completely stable previously and it failed! I upped the voltage to the RAM slightly to no affect, so I put it back to what it was and using and upped the voltage on my CPU offset setting by one increment just to see if that would have any effect (I have an overclocked CPU which has been through several 24 hour tests to make sure it is rock solid stable after I stabilized my RAM settings) and what do you know I passed all the RAM tests I was failing. I then went and looked at the windows reliability history and notice that several programs (mostly RTSS and my soundcard) were constantly crashing with critical errors which coincided with when I loaded the first set of 416 drivers. After I bumped my CPU offset by a single notch I have not had a single crash/critical error report in my windows reliability settings and the main game which I was getting random CTDs that was I had previously never crashed in stopped crashing again and hasn't since. Everything is stable.

    TL;DR I was failing tests that had nothing to do with my GPU because of the 416 driver set and upping my cpu voltage by a single increment put me back into the rock solid category and sorted out all of my issues gaming and otherwise that were most assuredly not an issue before 416 came into my life.

    Let me restart and see what the exact increment is and I will update this post in a couple of minutes.

    EDIT: The increment was + 0.00625v so I went from + 0.03125 -> + 0.03750 and all is good. Remember this is very specific to the motherboard, cpu, ram, and CPU/RAM overclock settings that I have so I would think that that exact increment wouldn't work for everyone; it only took an itty bitty boop for me but we all have different systems. I suggest upping your voltage by the smallest increment you can on your CPU like I did and test things out. If it doesn't help try one more increment and really if that doesn't do it I wouldn't think another bump would do anything, but you could try.

    Thx man. I just had first CTD in BF5, so I guess have to bump my vcore a little...
    This driver is good, faster than previous but this is weird behaviour....

    Both hog my CPU even with Graphing Disabled everywhere.Keeping Link settings alone didn't save to the device the way iCUE did.
    My pump speed and other settings have finally been saved properly so no need to have any Corsair software installed.
    Completely cured my issues with this driver.
    They do push the system more and I've noticed also that setting Max Pre-rendered Frames 1 (I usually use 3) is best for my setup now.

    Not exactly.The enhancements in this driver are so that they're pushing the users' system more.Previously percieved stable CPU overclocks becoming unstable, with some needing to bump voltage up a notch.Not uncommon.

    I have a 6700k@4.5, so you also have a much beefier CPU. :)

    Let me know about your benchs, I'm curious!

    Default vector I think (haven't changed it), whichever gives that nicer font :)

    From release notes:

    "This is GeForce Hot Fix driver version 416.64 that addresses the following:

    Since installing the driver, my COD BO4 has super low FPS. Even changed to lowest settings and getting 20-30 FPS. Anyone else have this issue?
