    I'm actually serious (and curious), can you cook an egg with that? I mean, even if the GPU itself is 90C the heatsink should be about 80C... is that enough to cook?

    I thought it was just me. I have glitches on cities skylines, a white line that flashes on ROBLOX, and more frame stutters in City Car Driving. I play cities skylines only now, and it's bearable since its not fast paced.

    Nvidia needs to get its game (Ha. ha.) up with its GameReady drivers (sorry. I just had to.) They add an entire 2-3 seconds to the boot sequence, which is infuriating when my parents' desktop (Pentium G4560 with cheapo $40 SSD vs my 8250U + top of the line (almost) 960 Evo) gets to the desktop faster.

    DDU, Downgrade to 390 or 391 and wait. That works for me and should work for people looking over their shoulders to see if Ngreedia is going to stab them in the back (again).

    @j95 For some reason, 398.58 gave worse performance on Witcher 3 and wasn't playing nice with custom refresh rates. FPS was in 20-25 in Witcher 3 High settings at FHD whilst on older developer driver it was constantly above 60 and hovered between 65 and 75. Reverted back, deleted hidden/ghost monitors for the issue to be fixed.
    Went back to 397.96.
    I also tried Stock Nvidia developer driver w/ bloatware in secure and insecure boot modes. Maybe new W10 update wrecked.

    Is there a decent guide for installing these custom drivers? I'm having a slightly hard time translating the engrish and shorthand from his website.

    Please, could someone point to the best driver they used for all 2018th? Without 0.5s freezes on some actions in OS (Windows 7 x64) and without player crash playing HEVC etc as I had with 391.35. Is 391.48 worth it?
    1st Maxwell Gen here 850M/860M. Would stay at 337.88 if newer games weren't so slow on it. Would be very grateful for help!
