Old driver blows up GeForce GTX 590 cards

A bug in a particular driver can cause Nvidia's latest GeForce GTX 590 graphics card to blow up.

Which version will be included on the driver CD that comes with the card - because that will be the version that many people use...?

It's that one that blows up. Many people I'm not so sure - who buys a £600 card that has only just come out and then doesn't update the drivers to the latest .... particularly if they plan to overvolt and overclock the card.

cramming two 300w GPU with power connectors only rated to deliver 450w is pretty much asking for sparks and smoke.

"The company also reminded us that any overclocking or overvolting can void a manufacturer's product warranty."

Commonsense seems to have gone missing then.

Gotta say, the 590 really isn't impressing me and stuff like this doesn't help.

Not at all Matt, I Lol'd when reading these two posts, it's the joke of the day AMD must be happy it's not their stuff blowing up for once after that infamous Athlon-on-fire vid.

Seriously. Is there any need to overclock it, the chips have already been hand picked. Looks like the Asus Motherboard was mullered as well. Suckers.

On the upside, don't ya love the smell of burning electronics when it's not yours.

Technically, you could do the same thing with any component and with the power of fanbois and youtube it ends up on tech forums.

Follow the guidelines and you don't end up with a paperweight.

Back to subject at hand - Well you know the card should be fast enough without overclocking out the box so most people with be uneffected - although it's a bit of a daft situation and I feel for anyone who found this out first hand prior to knowing the issue.

I stil don't get it and no one explained it - the computer restart before the blow up. So how can be driver responsible ? Look at GPU fan, look at CPU fan, look at CPU fan light... This computer turned off, then on. There is no driver durring the POST.
