Ok well the best driver currently is 12.3, ill see if i can find you a link. in the meantime, Is it a reference card or the Dual-X card?
and can you take some pictures of it in your case?

Bad idea. Your card is running unreasonably hotter than it should be. Return it. If you cut the wires they won't take it back. Drivers have nothing to do with this issue.

thats a reference card. no dont cut the wire that would void your warranty. where do you live and what is your ambient temp?

i wouldn't have him return it just yet. it may be something else, hence why i asked for pictures of his case.

Ahah, I knew I wasn't alone. After trying 12.4 and that 12.5 beta (8.97) or whatever the version number is, I reverted back to 12.3. Working well.

How did you uninstall the nvidia drivers? Maybe you didn't uninstall drivers propeply? Have you tried to reinstall your Windows? Hows your case cooling?
