Icon1 nVidia ForceWare Vista Driver Blunder – Thermal Management?

This week has been a horrid week for us. We’ve had so much hardware die or fail – first of all, our RAID 0 array failed, then our water cooling pump decided to fail, then one of our Vista installs corrupted itself and finally managed to avoid a fire hazard but killed an nVidia GeForce 7900GS graphics card in the process. They say bad things happen in groups of three – we’re at number four and hope for no more problems.

Today we’ll tell you about the death of an nVidia GeForce 7900GS graphics card and how we think it could have been avoided by better and more thoroughly-tested Windows Vista ForceWare drivers. It seems to be a major blunder by nVidia and we feel as if it is important enough to alert our readers about the issue. http://www.tweaktown.com/articles/990/

Default

his custom water cooling broke the card, not the software
