    i these days after installing driver 301.42 WHQL i have experienced lockups on my pc and one BSOD that pointed to "nvlddmkm.sys" i am not overclocking my GTX 680 i even made a custom fan profile in MSI Afterburner so at 37c so the fan runs at least 50% and at 50c it runs 60%.

    i used 301.10 WHQL and 301.24 Beta before i installed 301.42 WHQL and set the installation to "perform clean scan" i do that everytime and i didn't have any crashing with the older drivers.

    So i should try re-install driver 301.42 or downgrade to version 301.24?

    oh and i forgot to tell that it goes up to 46c when i do 1080p playback, so fan runs up to 56%.

    I'd roll back to the previous driver. Sometimes a driver release doesn't offer much improvement anyway.

    i reinstalled driver 301.42 and played Aion with everything on high for around two and half hours so i guess it's fixed i hope.
