People are seeing some decent FPS increases and PhysX score increases (Fluidmark) with these drivers. Gonna go ahead and download them. Not used to using modified .inf files, but it looks like it's just drag and drop into the extracted driver folder.

I'll report back once I get them installed.

I just wish the damn driver would be released by Nvidia already.

Well, I got a 0.1 bump in my graphics scores in WEI. Also about a 4 FPS average increase in GTA IV and my temps are about the same. Not bad, I guess.

Awesome! I'll install them in a bit when I get chance. Please say the clock speeds are fixed with dual monitors

Still not seeing this magical dual monitor idle clock speed fix that was supposed to come with these 256's. Think it was just some myth.

My folding @Home increased notably, probably due to:
Adds support for CUDA Toolkit 3.1 which includes significant performance increases for double precision math operations.

Here is the full release notes pdf:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/Window...ease_Notes.pdf

Copied from PDF:
"
GPU Runs at a High Performance Level (full clock speeds) in
Multi-display Modes
This is a hardware limitation and not a software bug. Even when no 3D programs are
running, the driver will operate the GPU at a high performance level in order to efficiently drive multiple displays. In the case of SLI or multi GPU PCs, the second GPU will always operate with full clock speeds; again, in order to efficiently drive multiple displays. Today, all hardware from all GPU vendors have this limitation."
