[MC] Nvidia 320.18 WHQL Display Driver is Damaging GPUs - Page 38  

post #371 of 1424
so after a day there still is not credible source but the same circular postings?
(and yes i do use google but unlike most i read the results instead of looking at the topic only)

wow, the internet is one big facebook.

Oh noes! Random internet guy says driver is damaging GPU's. No offense but this echo machine of repeating the same one or two rumored instances of damage all over the interwebs is getting silly.

Oh you look so ..... You even deny the problems from users that post here. Because you dont have problems it doesnt mean that the problems doesnt exist.

I tried this driver for a few days, it did not cooperate with BF3 and a GTX 460.

first of all you claimed guru3d mods admitted to the problem and that is simply not true - i'll let pass your earlier and even more ludicrous statement that there are 100s of brick cards posted in the nvidia thread - i read the whole 850+ posts, there are but a handful of those claims.

and out of those most state something like: "OMG my card is fried! thanks nVidia!" "my friend's card is fried!" nothing about what/when/how.

there are two users here with better sense and after losing signal, waited and were able to reboot and rollback the driver w/o any further complications (so far). one users seems to have suffered some damage but what and how much is not known yet and will kindly keep us posted. did any other the nvidia forum posters try any trouble shooting? it appears not. losing a signal does not mean the card is brick as the linked article and some folks would lead one to believe.

see the difference between what is more credible? methinks you are confusing skepticism with denial.

those posting on the nvidia forum is rather suspicious - quite a few of the member there were also skeptical themselves.

Yes, because picking one post out of thousands is reasonable enough to form a conclusion...To that point, you summed it up, best:

For the 780, there isn't one.

The issue with modifying the previous INF is that nothing exists to address an error so, if you have a "bump" in the road on a previous driver that's been modified, you just go down.

I built 4 PC's today with 780's. All 4 are the exact same hardware with the exception of the # of cards in each build.

3 are having issues, 1 is running what I'd describe as being okay.

Fresh windows, fresh HD's, fresh ram, fresh cards...Fresh drivers...

1 of them can't even make it through 3D Mark, the other makes it through 3D Mark but, takes a dump the moment I load something real like BF3 or Metro...The 3rd is stuttering like Russia's power grid AND freezes constantly, then attempts to recover...The 4th, has puttered through everything, is an SLI build...No idea why it's working.

Other vendors are reporting issues with the drivers...I talk to these guys daily...I have to believe them especially when I'm generating the same results.

My personal rig in sig w/3 780's is a complete mess...I can't even open a game with fresh installs of everything -- checked every hardware component...100% a driver issue.

I'm waiting to see what Nvidia says TBH...Especially considering this was largely a fail in terms of a launch driver.

i used a post as a sample of what guru3D thinks, if your claim is true that the mods find it credible than so would many/most members

i have lurked on that forum for over a year now specifically in the driver section. it is not full or "rampant" of fermis dying as you say.
