I went looking for new Nvidia beta drivers today (the latest is still 285.79) and used their "Find" utility to look. Filling in my info of Geforce 560 Ti and Windows 7 64 bit turns up results of the latest WHQL drivers released on October 24th but totally omits the previously listed beta drivers. I can still find the beta drivers if I use a different model of video card. These drivers are supposed to improve BF3 performance, among other things. I am currently using 285.79 with my 560 Ti but I'm a little concerned as to why that version was removed from the site when I search for 560 Ti drivers. Am I looking at a potential situation like the previous SC2 menu meltdown fiasco? Should I be rolling back my drivers? Why no word from Nvidia? Having already witnessed first hand artifacting in BF3 and temps to 85C in Skyrim with these latest beta drivers the whole situation is making me a little edgy.

GTX560 Ti listed as supported product for 500 series card. BF3 is quite buggy but the new patch might solved some of the problem. as for Skyrim my temperature never reach above 60c with my GTX460 (using the latest driver). did you let your gpu fan on auto or manual?
