I'm not sure this is the case, but it's what I gather from a majority of the posts. hehe
... Rumor has it (as posted in the forceware forum) that all new driver builds after some recent date will not have this bug. I could have been on mushrooms when I read that though
Has nothing to do with the fan. I have a 6800GT with a zalman vf700 and the fan is connected to the mobo NOT the fan header on the graphcs card.
An apart from all the other ailments commented above, it is also about 10 degrees C higher than normal.

Changed back to 6629 since 7167 does not offer any feature that I was missing.
