    WHQL only means 'this driver will not kill windows or other drivers with WHQL certification'. There is no guarantee that it works.

    oh and:

Til then, go "Nvidia Binary Blob" thingy)
    yes, there are enough reports of dead cards because of this driver.

    So.. what do you choose? A driver that works good enough or a driver that will destroy your hardware?

    Glad I'm not a gamer and my Nvidia card is passively cooled (I did install those drivers..). No jet engine noise, no problems with ball bearings going to hell in those utterly crappy GPU fans, and no problems with the fans not running at all because someone fscked up some driver code.

    How come there isn't some built in protection in the hardware itself, when heat reaches hellish levels ?

    They do, which is why almost all of the reports are, "My game is slow!" and not, "My GPU burned up!"
