Care to enlighten the n00b?
I changed drivers to 22.214.171.124. which are digitally signed (came on the driver CD) and my 3DMark score improved to just 7161. Futuremark still does not approve the drivers, and will not let me publish. The test itself nearly crashed, so something may, indeed, be very very wrong, or there may be problems with the drivers themselves, at this point, which some of the reviews are also claiming.
BTW... These cards are very quiet... I can't tell a noticable difference in case fan noise since I installed them...
honestly i've never had a problem with drivers as long as i uninstalled the old drivers, rebooted, installed new drivers, rebooted. some people swear by driver cleaners though.
sweet, that's what i wanted to hear. a quieter version from the previous generation. i'm curious though, do you consider the noise from your fans loud? when i have my panaflow fans down at half i could barely hear them, and i think my loudest fan is coming from my 7800GT with my power supply not far behind it.
