I have my gpu overcloced through its bios and the only problem I have is my gpu is running 10c hotter in idle than it used to with this new driver.

I haven't had any problems. Mine has a huge overclock from the original factory settings. It's running fine too. But with 64bit drivers

I heard rumours that the very latest EVGA precision deely can still clock with these drivers... Also, nvflash and nibitor still work perfectly to flash clocks...tested on 7_64_ult_rtm and a gtx260...

EDIT: just read the original post again. indeed, EVGA are on the ball...

Yup the heading for the news article is a little bit misleading. It doesnt kill overclocking fully and the new Precision 1.9.1 works with the driver. (The heading should have been New driver kills software overclocking)

It's not too surprising BIOS overclocks are working fine. If it is as W1zzard says and just some IDs changed incorrectly, the software applications are simply having problems taking their readings properly. "Hardcoded" clocks in the BIOS wouldn't be affected.

Edit: Yes perhaps the heading is a bit misleading and I apologize for that. But isn't it the headline's job to hook you and get you to actually read the news? (yes poor excuse, but I had to say it )

Is this going to be a common trend for eVGA? Currently I have the Videotek Radeon 4870 X2, but my last card was an eVGA 8800 GTS 512...and seeing how nVidia has taken the lead again I might upgrade in a year or two...and eVGA is a brand I trust.
