cards that are affected have a default 2d core speed of 400MHz or less, my default 2D core speed is 400MHz and the drivers that raise the temps are 71.40. 71.50, 71.80, 71.81, 71.83, 71.84, 71.90 and 75.90.....70.41, 70.78, 70.90, 71.20, 71.21, 71.22, 71.25 don't raise the temps. Overclocking my 2D speed to 401MHz will cause the temps to drop from aroud 68*C to 57*C and this drop can be verified by measuring the air temp coming out of the cooling fan housing.

76.10 also has the temp bug. Drivers dated after march 8th should be fixed (so says EP). I havn't heard of any 6x.xx drivers raising the temps either, so you should be ok with those.
If your ultra's 2d core speed is higher than 400, you won't see a difference.

I think we need a new poll, which is the best driver 76.10 or 71.84

"A small part of me has died" lmao :D At least this thread is somewhat usefull as he does not want the bug and is not just asking "What is the best?" :)

It's implied though. The best certainly wouldn't have that bug, so while he didn't come out and specifically say he wanted to know what the best driver is, he still did/does.

Out of the 7x.xx drivers the 71.22, 71.24, 71.25, 71.40 and the 71.50 drivers have the 'yellow water' bug in HL2 so you'll probably want to avoid those unless you don't play HL2 at all, out of the 6x.xx series i'm pretty sure you'd be happy with any of the later versions like 67.02, 67.03, 67.66 or the 66.93's :)

ps, btw...nice card, not many of those around :)

The 71.20 drivers were the latest drivers I know of that did not have the temp bug or yellow water in HL2.

Some later drivers fixed yellow water but had the temp bug.

Wait, are you mad at me, them or both? Because, I think it's just wrong to be mad at someone who keeps dying on the inside every time one of these posts is made. :(

No, not mad at you, was just making you my partner-in-crime. I figured we both could release some stress and go postal on some fools.

BTW, I fixed your name in my original post. For some reason, I've always read it as SuperKyle, not SuperKlye. LOL
