Tried this yesterday. Works okay as long as I disable PowerMizer via the various registry hacks required. Otherwise it downclocks very quickly, independant of GPU temps.

How do you determine whether or not you are getting PhysX?

I just installed 177.39 and all I could figure out was that it is running way hotter than my last drivers...

This was a no go for me, crysis crashed twice, no changes in settings than all my previous settings with benching all my other drivers.... so no go for me, goin back to 177.35 most stable and just a few points of diff. Vantage were lower to than .39 , and only 5p more than .35.

I thought PhysX came with the driver install... at least with 177.39????

I am so confused.... can someone set me straight on how/where to get PhysX or at least try to get it????

if you downloads 177.39, you are downloading driver and physx installers.....if you download 177.41 physx installer is not included...just download a part

Can't get CP to work with 175.XX and higher drivers except 177.40 ?!.

Okay, sweet I finally downloaded PhysX, but it doesn't look like it has been enabled for the 8600M GT yet, as I cannot select anything under Hardware Device Selection.....

Even though PhysX is suppose to come wit 177.39 nothing showed up until after I installed the standalone but 177.41 didn't enable anything either....

So, I've heard tell that PhysX will be useless for people like me with one GPU and a mobile one at that. Basically that I'm just going to overload my little GPU and meltdown. Is that true or are people like me going to see some benefits?

I mean I guess we'll just have to wait and see, ya? but what is your guess.

In the meantime I'm downgrading my drivers to something cooler.... 177.41 is pushing me to like 95C while gaming and since PhysX isn't even working yet I might as well try to cut some of that down...

Didn't check the temperatures, but 177.41 did crash most spectacularly on my OC test - suppose it's one of the hottest running ones.

Even when installing "the right way", uninstall + sweeping in safe mode + new install, I couldn't get the CP to pop up, just like with every driver past 175.xx except 177.40 with original INF. So back to 177.40.

The best driver for 8600M GT !!!

SmartDimmer... OK

PowerMizer... OK (Just change PowerMizerLevel from 3 to 1)

Performance... OK (3DMark06: 3299 / 175.80: 3260) (3DMark Vantage 1.0.1: P834 -> Good) (Stock Setting 1280x1024) (NFS PS... OK)

Stability... OK

PhysX... FAIL (No AGEIA PhysX processor installed) :)

HDTV... OK (MPEG2/H.264)

I didn't test 177.40/177.39

Hey!

So as of right now I'm coming from a 175.80 while using RivaTuner. I'm so pissed that Vista asks about RivaTuner every time I log in (I don't want to disable UAC), that I'm coming to 177.41.

177.41 does support overclocking, right? And will overclocking the 177.41 driver work faster than a 175.80 with RivaTuner (I play Age of Conan, so the faster the better)?

Specs:

Dell XPS M1530

Windows Vista 32-Bit

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz

4GB Ram

256MB nVidia 8600M GT

Thanks for the help!
