    I'm kind of the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' type of guy. I'll stick with 320.49 for now I guess, unless 314.22 runs cooler.

    I've been running 320.49 since it came out, no issues here, never tried 320.18.

    Unfortunately, I cannot test any drivers or anything else for that matter. All boxed up! :( - still, if you've got one that works, great!

    Nothing has changed with the procedure, so I don't know why is it not working for you. There could be a typo in what you edited in the INF. This has happened to me a few times.

    [Quick Tips] GPU Driver INF Modding for 'Aftermarket Upgrades'

    You can download my INF mod for 337.50 from this post and it should work for your 680M SLI: http://forum.notebookreview.com/alienware-18-m18x/749573-nvidia-geforce-337-50-beta.html#post9617879

    Mr. Fox, in your nvdmi.inf file, I see you add the entire line:

    "%NVIDIA_DEV.11A0.048F.1028% = Section353, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_11A0&SUBSYS_048F1028 "

    instead of just changing 0550 to 048F. So there are an extra 11A0 line like this pic :

    Yes, I do that so the INF will work for more than one configuration. If I merely changed it to what I needed the INF would only work for people that are running the same GPU/mobo combination that I am. It's more work to make it useful for multiple configurations than it is to do the mod just for your own machine.

    Did it work for you, bro?

    Yes if I add that one extra code line, it works. But it does not work if I do the old way.
