It seems as soon as Nvidia hit an all time high with their GPU’s, there is evidence that the 320.18 WHQL display drivers are killing off GPUs. Fortunately it hasn’t killed every card it’s touched

Seems some people's cards are getting damaged from the 320.18's

Mods:
could not find in search and don't know if this is the right section or not.

Given the problems/issues I had with the drivers, I'd say that's probably the case.

-After my computer's monitor turns off, it wouldn't come back on. (happened about 7-10 times)
-Random freezes for about 10 seconds long. (happened about 4-8 times.)
-Tomb Raider had all kinds of strange looking jittery and artifact effects. (The game was unplayable) This is only one game.
-After setting the fan to manual in After Burner, it would default to auto for no apparent reason.

All this within 24 hour period. wth.gif

Installed the 314.22 and absolutely NO problems at all.

I don't' see how this is possible, at most it's a reflow issue.

On a similar note, since installing these drivers I've had screen saver (blank, no animation tongue.gif) hard-freeze my system 4 times in the past week. It happened once with the 314.22 set, as well, but only once.

Interesting. I've only been getting the normal crashes in PS2 and nothing else is crashing. Even our daily builds at work haven't had issues on 320.18 and we don't have official support yet.

It may not affect all gpus but I thought the nvidia users of OCN might want to know of this before its to late for those having issues.
