    Since I saw that 320.18 was killing cards haven't touched both my desktops (which is normal as I mostly use my laptop for work, some gaming). Anyway I have 320.18 on my laptop aswell and haven't had any problems. Even gaming, I have played through a couple hours of Metro LL and haven't seen any problems.

    So who is using 320.18 and who reverted to 314.22

    And if you are having any problems with 320.18, state what.

    Been using 320.18 since they came out, and 320.14 before that. No problems at all. The only way I can see these killing cards is if the fan profiles are getting screwed up, but I always have a custom fan profile setup in Afterburner anyway, so that wouldn't really affect me.

    I use the 320.00 beta drivers. I just finished the download for the 320.18 then I saw users complaining about it.

    320.00 beta drivers seem to keep my system pretty stable (running 64bit btw)

    They're ok for me too, I never really had any issues like TDR etc with browsers and what not..

    From what i saw its only lower end or main stream chips (GF104/114, some GK106/104) that suffer from it.


    The only bug for me is occasional streaming stutter in Bf3 and AVP2010 spider web flicker - I uploaded a video

    -Serious Sam3 shadow flicker bug, but im not 100% sure on this one, i had it with 314.,22 too until i reset ingame cfg. But now it didnt help, i will see when I valide it in steam.

    People have been saying that their cards have been artifacting or even frying on Nvidia forums after installing 320.18.
    Mostly happening with the 4 and 5 series.


    Anywho, it's nice to see how everyone goes about such a thing, just out of curiosity.

    I had 320.18 on my 660Ti, only some artifacts on BF3. On an italian forum where I am a couple of friends have problems: 570 dead, 480 dead and 670 running hotter respect beta.
    Now, I'm using beta.

    I have read on other site that could be a voltage issue, on kepler you can't pump a lot of voltages for kill a card, but on 4xx/5xx imho yes.

    320.18 on my desktop with a GeForce 9800 GTX+ and no problems at all, except for a couple UI glitches when switching between Aero and Classic Theme (GTA IV runs better on classic theme, Aero uses more video memory and the GeForce is onlly 512 megs).

    I just think if you have your own fan profile set up, then this really wouldn't be too much of a problem.

    One interesting side note: I'm also running a Windows 8 testbed, and was having all kinds of freezes, etc with 314.22 (the same one so many people are going back to), and these problems disappeared as soon as I loaded up 320.18.

    Have a GTX780, only option is 320.18.

    Fan spins up on it's own, I don't have a profile set up for it...

    He doesn't have Nvidia cards if you look at his System Specs.

    No issues with Team Fortress, Bioshock Infinite and others, maybe the driver won't affect low endies like mine

    My GTX 590 uses the Fermi v2 GPUs, so I prefer to be safe than sorry and never upgraded. Everything works fine as it is, anyway.

    I ran 320 on my 670 before buying my 780 and still running 320. I also run 320 on my HTPC GTX 650 TI.

    no issue, not even while benching and really high clocks. ( 1228mhz on the 780 and 1250+ on the 670 ).
