Best to not use the recent 196.75 drivers from nVidia

I dont actually know of anyone whos had this problem, but then again I dont know anyone whos playing starcraft 2 beta. Apparantly the drivers do something special for some people which makes the video cards fan stop working. Best to roll back to a previous lot like 196.21 for example. nVidia website has all the older drivers in their archive section. I guess its always good to wait a week and see how everyone else does with new drivers. At least thats what I've always done in the past.

Basically just dont use these drivers for any nvidia card, just to be safe. Mine isnt listed as the affected ones but I'm not risking it.
