    Just installed. GPU-Z and MSI afterburner does not work with this.

    I am on a AMD board using the SLI hack.. perhaps that had something to do with it.

    Instead of going back to 267.26 beta I tried 267.60 WHQL, which works fine.

    I was at the Nvidia meeting yesterday, they sent me the PR for the driver after the meeting, I guess Jake forgot to post it.
