    Judging by the responses, it looks to me like the issues only affect pre Kepler graphics cards.

    I do have problems with LoL, which have been confirmed to be 320.18 related. Regarding a game crash in 3v3's.
    No other problems with anything else at all.

    Using 320.18, GPU fan speed always under a "close eye" (G510 showing status..).
    No problems.

    Did anyone actually claim this driver interfered with fan control?

    Apparently except for me and my 580. LOL. :rockout:

    And my fan profile in precision is working perfectly. Just ran Unigine Valley and it never got above 68 celcius.

    iv been using them none of my cards have died but a few days ago I forgot to turn on my custom fan profile and I thought the card got a little hot. I honestly havent done testing though, So I can make any real arguments. They seem a tad on the unstable side though.

    As for the poll I wouldnt say I dont care but I Honestly think it warrants further testing. I mean we are working on rumors right? not an Nvidia announcement I'm sure a few of us could get together and look to see whats going on.

    Fixed. Mine isn't Kepler and isn't affected. Even if low end, is still Fermi.

    I am using the 320.18 drivers and I came to that decision because it seems that the cards that are being killed by these drivers are GTX 500 series and below and it's really not a large amount. I am using a GTX Titan plus I am water cooled so any worries of overheating are basically null and void for me by these. But 320.18 feel like they run warmer then the 314 drivers... however I have no proof of that and it might just be my imagination.

    I've been running 320.18 since I got my 660 OC Windforce a few weeks ago. No problems at all. Temps are fine (exceptional, actually, but that credit goes to Gigabyte's fantastic cooler) and no issues with the automatic fan profile either. Smooth sailing. :toast:

    With my 560Ti I get a few second freezes on the desktop/while browsing. It happens quite often and some times it takes a couple of seconds to a freeze happen after another. Driver sweep, registery sweep and reinstalling didn't help. Going back to 310.xx that gets installed with the card after the first startup seems to have fixed the issue. Haven't used any higher version yet but im betting they would work aswell. Never had an issue with nvidia drivers before so im abit sad they aren't so flawless as I once knew them to be.
