GPU Drivers crash every time I complete a WU; clocks reset to idle

...and on OC settings that were stable before as well
EDIT: See later posts and posts on page 2. I seem to get driver crashes no matter what driver and on the same GPU clocks/settings I used for the Chimp Challenge that were completely stable.

67c is pretty low, i would think maybe the drivers, they are beta's arent they?

When it crashed I wasn't really monitoring the temps, though I honestly think they were surpassing 67C at the time.
Well, they have crashed at temps like this before; clocks reset to idle and the display driver restarts.

Ah well, folding on this GPU at 66C right now seems stable.

my beta drivers caused my fan to shut off multiple times, I put info here on the EVGA site:
http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=405769

I would suggest you go back to regular drivers for the time being...

I kinda figured it was drivers too (same thing happening to me, for every 1 completed WU I get like 7 failures)... time to flip back ;/

Should I downgrade my drivers before tomorrow's Foldathon begins?
EDIT: It might be a temperature problem, my GPU is hitting over 67C while folding right now. I'm increasing fan speed to compensate.
Am I nuts to think that 67C is no big deal for a card folding? My two 260s are right next to each other and stay at 85C. Top cards fan at 55 percent bottom card fan at 40 percent, and the 250 under them is usually around 75.

It failed again... just after a WU completed. Temps are stable, fan is spinning constantly without any choking. What could be happening here!? hmm...

Must be luck I guess... during this most recent switch to a new core, there were no crashes. My GPU overclock is the same as before when I was folding happily with my x4 for the Chimp Challenge and everything was stable.

I put my GTS 250 on GPU3 earlier on today. It was at stock and barely getting 4k PPD!

I switched back to GPU2 and getting a nice 6.6k now.

GPU3 at stock is terrible.
