    How the hell would it cool down the card? Is your fan louder or something?

    had a chance to play around with this set now, and all seems Very Good [for me ;)] any mini stuttering or slight lag i had before seems to be fixed, also games like Crysis, GTA IV , EFLC , and CoD4 play ALot smoother than previous sets,. also as someone else mentioned in this thread ; the IQ does [seem] to be improved [not sure if placebo or actual texture enhancements etc]

    all in all , im very impressed with this Quadro set :)


    ...off to test some more, and bench results for here, be back in a little bit :)


    ........Edit.... also gpu encoding [both vReveal, badaboom and power director apps] all seem to have had a boost, encoding time is less by 2-5 mins across the board :p [using same settings and same 2.6gb file to encode for all 3 apps]

    nono, no need to Thank me :)
    Thank you all for testing hehe....

    i´ll post these cause i love Guru and the PPL here....

    so i´ll go installing them now :) and run some benches...
    in my opinion, all the quadro drivers are a lil better then the normal ones...but, well see:)

    cya^^

    i added a POLL ;)

    i voted better, cause they are indeed better then 197.xx quadros...

    final fantasy bench is a lil better with these drivers...about 50 points more...after 3 runs...
    still cant set 60hz for my second monitor (hdtv), but no new driver did that......and i cant play games with the TV because of this, i tried everything, refresh fix tutorials, you name it...its just impossible to play on it, if i start GTA4 as example, 1680x1050 and start the game, my TV says, Attention, please set to 60 hz and 1680x1050 .....i try to, but as soonest i set 60hz in the nvidia panel and push apply, it reverts back to 59hz....but my TV doesnt like this..
    but appart from all taht, these drivers are a keeper for me...
    gonna test more in while....

    hiya m8, have you tried 'powerstrip' bud? usualy can unlock the refresh rate from locked 59hz to standard 60hz operation [or above] ;)
    if you have tried this then il lower my head in shame lol, just thought it was worth mentioning :)

    hope it helps bud :)
