fast forward .......lightining 770 ...BF3 glitch ALOT and memory glitches


EVGA 770 SC...SAME EXACT PROBLEM AS MY GIGABYTE




revert drivers on 460...not a issue!



i get my 4th 770 tuesday! ....i might keep it on the box or just underclock it until new drivers.....all my cards arrived working PERFECTLY !


im scared now redface.gif

I have an EVGA GTX 770 SC as well, and i have had absolutely no problems, it has been running great for me. Honestly 5 cards across 3 forums got fried? Im not convinced that the current driver is "BAD". Sure every driver has problems, but i think this is getting blown out of proportion. They prob OC'd their cards too much or something stupid.

I for one thank you and have rolled back to the previous WHQL driver.

Interesting...

I was running these drivers when a 590 popped.

With that said, not had an issue on Kepler based cards.
Just finished playing a round on a 670 and I saw no anomalies.

You say here it -might- damage your GPU. The title you gave the article was that it -IS- damaging GPUs.

You might want to change that to be more politically correct.

To be completely honest, I've never purchased an AMD GPU in my life, only Nvidia (7800, 7800GT, 9800GTX, GTX 285). The AMD GPUs I currently have/use were won from a giveaway a while back. CPU Wise, I've owned a Pent II, AMD 3800+, i7-920, i7-2600k, then again, with the PC i won, was given the FX-8320 i'm currently using. I honestly don't favor either company, it's all about the flavor of the month.

The information contained within the article were brought to my attention from the westcoastmods facebook group. After a few days of seeing it, I decided to investigate it. So I read the thread, yes all 46 pages, something I highly doubt anyone else has done. After reading 46 pages of issues, and finding multiple reports of both GPUs and laptops being rendered useless, I thought an informative article on the subject would be important for those currently using 320.18 WHQL drivers.

Now lets say the information gathered from hundreds of users and gamers was incorrect in terms of GPUs being killed off due to the drivers. The general consensus is the drivers are flat out horrible. The amount of the community witnessing artifacts, crashes, and many other strange anomalies is of higher importance. Even worse... they could be right, and you just might have a $700 brick to help build your house of sorrows. That's what this article is about, warning others that these drivers might damage your GPU, however it is likely 320.18 is extremely buggy.

props to you for documenting all that.

it does suck when others come and call you out when clearly you've owned hardware from a multitude of vendors. Generally OCN is a helpful community but fanboy bashing is all too common under the news forum...hope you dont take much offense to it.

Hopefully these threads will have enough hits for Nvidia to notice and make a fix ASAP.

With all due respect, if the drivers were so bad, don't you think Nvidia would have pulled them off their website?

EDIT: Running 580s SLI with no issue whatsoever. +rep btw for the article.

Have 320 drivers on both my GTX 690 and GTX 680. Kids constantly play games and having no issues on the GTX 680. I've none with my GTX 690 but still concerned as there is something obviously going on.

Might just revert....not sure yet. My over clocks are still maintained - GTX 680 @ 1222 Hz Core and GTX 690 1150 Hz Core.

While I agree, that's just something we have to do as a smaller site to gain attention. It's not incorrect, just not necessarily politically incorrect. If I had said "320.18 WHQL Display Drivers are causing Artifacts", it just wouldn't get as much attention. Just a part of writing that we as a smaller site have to do for now.

I've read rumors (nothing confirmed) that the drivers some how caused an increase in voltages. The 500 series were known to have questionable VRM's, and smaller amounts of overvolting can cause the caps to pop. Oddly enough, the only cards I can recall being damaged from the updates were 500 series.

Semantics. It might damage your GPU, and it is damaging GPUs. Why he should change the title? Better to scare people from installing these or at least make them closely monitor their GPUs than give them a lukewarm advice and then let them alone with their problems if things go south, that's what I think.

You've just admitted to sensationalism.
