Any good? Does it have the GPU fan issue? Any word on the next official release from NV?

did a single gpu test, and got an avg of 39 fps in the gpu flyby at 1600x900 all high settings which imo is pretty damn impressive. at 1920x1200 sli got 45 fps which is up from the 41 i use to get.

As for the 174.12's, I uninstalled them bacause they gave me the same annoying bug twice today. The screen would go black, and all i could do was restart the computer. It happened after exiting Timeshift and once when i was setting up stuff in the CP. Back to 172.23 with their yummy crysis performance.

Like what games does nHancer give you problems with?

I had the black screen issue with the 171.16s but I have yet to see it with the 174.12s.

Thanks Pirate. Tried these out with everything from Return to Castle Wolfenstein to Bioshock and so far so good. At least they haven't broken anything so far. Although the setup appeared to crash with a black screen and blinking cursor, on reboot they worked fine however.

Vista 64 bit.
http://www.electronicpunk.com/forcew...ista64_PHK.zip
Fan control set at 60% default for my GTX's again. Game Profile settings work.
So far, so good.

It did prompt for a reboot to enable SLI when older versions never needed a reboot.

I think it's just the sheer amount of options included, and I set something I shouldn't. Messiah, Descent 3, SIN 1 are the games i couldn't get running until i uninstalled nhancer and reinstalled drivers. They worked fine before installing nhancer and tinkering with it .

Isn't RivaTuner better than nHancer (aside for the SLi functionality)?

Anyway, what are some of the new features/updates with these drivers? (I'm using a 7900 GS, so I don't know if these drivers, and onwards, are really gonna make such a difference for me )

Different tools for different jobs. nHancer just does game profiles (AA, AF, other settings) while RT deals with hardware control (Fan, OC, etc.).

I don't think you'll see any more performace from your 7900. Maybe game compatibility fixes.

Dunno if it is the same as yours, but with my 7800gt under XP the fan stays at 100% after resuming the computer from sleep. The last driver that did not had this issue was the 93.71
