New Title "Nvidia does not trust previously released drivers"
,,,,,the greater issue here is that these drivers are specially designed to not work for anyone using an Amd video card....this.....this is the final straw Nvidia. The way you unfairly make your video cards awesome and profitable....... and all those satisfied customers who support you...:shadedshu: you disgust me. Nvidia.....I think Im gonna puke.......

So far so good.

Installed it a few hours ago (I rolled BACK to 340.52 nearly 3 weeks ago from experiencing the same problems everyone has been reporting on, which was the last driver prior to official GTX 970 and GTX 980 launches). Tested it with full screen on YouTube and browsing a few websites that display some mathematical renders along with testing with a couple games (FFXIV ARR/Heavensward and TW3: Wild Hunt) and running 10 loops of Unigine Valley 1.0 and Unigine Heaven 4.0. No crashes.

Funny thing is, page 16 (of the Adobe file release notes, actual official page is page 12), says:

"Changes and Fixed Issues in Version 353.30

The following sections list the important changes and the most common issues resolved
in this version. This list is only a subset of the total number of changes made in this driver version. The NVIDIA bug number is provided for reference.

Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/Windows 8.1 Fixed Issues

There were no fixed issues to report for this release."

source - http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/353.30/353.30-win8-win7-winvista-desktop-release-notes.pdf

Funny how that worked out. Otherwise, my EVGA GTX 780 Ti cards are back up to 1306 MHz @ 1.1875 to 1.2125V and under 39°C (312 K) after taking a good hit (1267 MHz @ same voltage range) from using the rolled back driver (version 340.52).

Drivers should be designed and coded in such a way as to not affect overclocking ability much...but then again, we all know the WHY behind this way of thinking by Nvidia. However, I digress.

Anyone tried these?
Yes, I did. Like 353.06 and 353.30, that driver caused TDR and locked my system when Chrome is running with hardware acceleration on. It gets rarer, but eventually Chrome will freeze the whole system. Hard reset is required to restore the system back to normal.
