I hope Nvidia hurry up and get their ass in gear and release a new driver to fix this *major* bug.
If you want silence, just set the speed to 30% or 40% with nvclock. I wouldn't suggest it, though, this chip is hot. If you're really after silence, grab an after market cooler.
The beta driver was keeping the fan way to slow the core was heating up quite a lot.
