I hereby declare a petetion that demands compensation for ALL of the damage units or legal action will be taken into the court of law. PLEASE sign this petition to get the ball rolling.

Can you show us some proof that it is caused by the driver?

[HARD] has had several cases...Tom's has had several...A customer of mine has had a failure...Not to mention major vendors are reporting about a 5% total failure thus far...

I'm not speaking FOR that individual...What I am saying is that there is legitimacy surrounding the driver destroying cards...

Those of you still on 320.18 with custom factory OCed cards, try this:

If you don't have Maximum Quality enabled, enable that and all the quality settings to its highest and report back after doing a test on 2 or 3 troublesome pieces of software(games, benches, etc.).

I don't understand how that is possible though.
I monitored temps/volts while heavy gaming/benching and no change whatsoever has happened or spiked to a value that is different to the settings defined in AB.

You kill a card if its old, over-volting it, overheating it...etc and this driver is not doing any of those things on my 580s.
It might cause crashes, but the rest is ......just doesn't make sense.

i have to underclock and turn down settings or BF3 will crash. BF3 is the only game giving me issues. I can play Crysis3 MP @ 1.212V 1137 / 3500 allday/errday

below is repost from the Titan thread, i have been getting the same error with 320.14 and 320.18

for me BF3 will crash under any overclock, and even at default clocks unless i turn ingame MSAA off

What kind of crash? Black screen? Driver recover? Direct x error? I have been getting direct x errors in bf3 myself.
DirectX error, DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG to be exact

the crash happens sometimes when GPU usage reaches max. then usage sticks to max for 1-2 seconds, then the game freezes

i can alt-tab to desktop to find this


closing the error message window closes the BF3 window. if you try to launch the game again without rebooting it crashes immediately in the same way

it happens way less often if i downclock AND overvolt, just lowering clocks helps but it still crashes a lot.

something VERY STRANGE i found while googlng for a solution: make sure your default browser is Chrome. when i was using firefox for battlelog it crashed way more often. with chrome i can even run higher clocks (still a negative offset, but -50 instead of -100)

since i set it up like this:
  • set Chrome as default brower so Battlelog opens in Chrome
  • with a downclock so it boost under 1GHz
  • overvolt @1212 mV
  • with ingame MSAA, Post AA, and motion blur off, everything else @ Ultra
  • with NVCP settings maxed (8xAA, clamp, high quality filtering)

i have been nearly crash free for the last few days

Like has been mentioned about drivers in other threads, no two systems are just alike even if they contain the same exact hardware. Different systems react to drivers differently.

As a business owner, I'll be the FIRST person to tell you that no 2 chips are ever the same...Ever.

Regardless of what you've monitored or done or proven to yourself, there's always someone out there with the same exact hardware that will prove you incorrect.

I used to write mobile drivers and within the driver, itself, are about 15 different ways to fry a card...It doesn't have to be a spike, overheating, voltage lock...It can be a failure to release flash data that wipes the card, it can be impulse data that overloads the slot...I could literally do this all day.

The sheer fact that other vendors are having issues with this driver and I mean issues well beyond a BSOD, gives it legitimacy in my eyes.

Just browse the Nvidia forums for 10 minutes, go back a few pages...100s of cards are gone...Some of these guys aren't trolling, either -- One or two Nvidia mods have experienced dead cards not but hours after installing the WHQL.

Replacing my customer's card -- No big deal.
My 780's crashing 20 seconds into 3D mark -- No big deal.
5% of all vendor cards frying/crashing/wiping after a WHQL -- That's a big deal.

I had odd voltage readings in Precision X with 320.18 drivers. Now I know Precision X is bugged but my top 670 was showing 1150 Mv and the bottom card showed 1175 Mv. This is with max voltage set to 1150. Also, my bottom 670 is normally 4-5C cooler than the top card but while running 320.18 it was averaging 7-8C HIGHER than the top card. Now I am a total noob about these things but something is amiss here. Rolling back to 314.22 has solved all my issues (restarts, BSOD's, artifacting, etc.). Also, having gone back to Afterburner both cards are now showing a max voltage of 1175Mv and running cool(ish) again.

My 780's haven't yet bit the dust but, they aren't performing like they should be -- I can't even barebone it and get through a full run of 3D mark without a BSOD...

Unfortunately, those with 780's cannot roll back because there's nothing really to roll back too -- While the previous beta apparently supports the 780, they actually crash more then the current WHQL...

Just sayin.

Proof?

I've seen reports of people in 320.18/320.14 Beta having to downclock or push quality setting for their GPUs to cool a bit...must be because with quality setting their cards aren't outputting as many FPS as they can and as such, doesn't get as hot or drink as much voltage. Play it safe, people. Better roll back to 314.22 until this mess is cleared.
