Nvidia 196.75 Drivers Overheat Nvidia GPU's

Specs: Windows 7
"Original post - March 5th, 5:20pm EST: I want to warn all of our visitors who are participating in the StarCraft II Beta to refrain from installing the latest NVIDIA WHQL 196.75 WHQL-certified drivers. If you already installed it, uninstall it and downgrade to the previous version. Yeah, it's that serious. Many players are reporting their PCs or graphic card have died. It also affects all Blizzard games, so heed the call and safe your hardware's life.

According to Blizzard's Tech Support the latest NVIDIA drivers are causing fan control to not work correctly and causes massive overheat. StarCraft II Beta might kill your PC or card literally. A fix is already in the works. Stay tuned for further updates."

What happens if your gpu gets burnt out from this driver? Get a lawyer and est a class action lawsuit against nVidia. You better believe a lawsuit is coming after this giant screw up from nVidia.
