For the record, this driver also has fan control problems, and Nvidia
has withdrawn it: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/announcement.php?a=39.



It seems the driver works fine if you manually setup the fan control.

I have been using nvclock to-do this


#nvclock -f -F 70

I dont want to downgrade due to experiencing better performance with the newer driver.

note: GTX260 core BE, temps stable

$ nvclock -T
nvidia GeForce GTX 260
=> GPU temperature: 65C
=> Board temperature: 55C

And that's under load
