    Default Do NOT upgrade to NVIDIA 196.75 drivers

    Article

    In short, it may overheat your card, with a possibility of a sad demise of your card. Wait for a fix from nVidia

    Just a heads up

    on 196.21 @ 50C (just played game for an hour).
    I bet 196.75 cant do anything to my card
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    NVIDIA'S statement:

    "We are still root causing the issue and reaching out to those customers who seem impacted by the driver.

    We want to make sure anybody who has not downloaded the driver does not do so from any other sites who still have the driver up, and for those that have downloaded it, we want to make sure they roll back to the previous driver located here:

    http://www.nvidia.com/object/driver_rollback.html

    If any of your readers reach out to you that are affected, please feel free to forward their contact info to me so our team can reach out to them directly."

    If you feel safe with the 196.75, thats your call. Im just letting the people who want to be on the safe side know about it, as many have faced overheated cards. The bug is with 196.75, not a previous driver (though i do remember a major bug in some 191.xx driver i think)
