    As with all nVidia graphics drivers, I wait a week or two before installing them. Anyone remember the driver that screwed with the cards fan?

    i think many would remember that :D . i never use it though since i was a bit lazy to upgrade my driver when it actually comes out. but even if i ended with the driver it will not going to harm my gpu back then since my gpu were using passive cooler from the start
