    hopefully this beta driver works properly.
    version 320.00 beta had fan control issues on the GTX 400 series cards. (caused high temperatures and throttling)

    Finding issues is the point of releasing BETA drivers. If you don't want issues then stick with the WHQL releases.

    Meh, Nvidia's Beta drivers have been a hit and miss. Like I understand as Schizo said its to find out issues, but some beta releases are a flat out joke.
    The last 3 months of WHQL releases from Nvidia haven't been perfect either... AMD is really stepping up their driver department.
