Pretty hilarious when I was searching around for SC2 and came across SC2 sets Nvidia cards on fire, though seeing as how most fires burn at least at 500 degrees celcius, guess they didn't quite mean it literrally. At any rate it's useful information for those of you who don't keep informed and are still running these drivers.

191.07 also works with no problems (at least i have not encountered any since Jan).

side note: I had heat problems until I did the jan/feb dx9c update. Lopped off over 20 degrees from the GPU's.
