I am currently using the 7.52 with coolbits mod and have my memory clocked to 515mhz. I get 8729 3DMarks in 3DMark2000.

I just upgraded my drivers from 6.50 to 12.90 and my 3dmark2001 score went from 4110 to 4688. I always use all the default settings for 3dmark but have my windows display settings set to highest quality for Direct3D and OpenGL.

I haven't ran 3DMark fully in a long time... the 12.xx series are best at the moment. Get the 12.41 WHQL drivers, they should be stable & fast.

I'm using 12.90 now and get a stupid dialog every time I boot. It says something about some missing entry in Nvqtwk.dll or somesuch dll. 12.60 didn't complain about that.

Ok, I just duplicated it with NVmax by clicking the "Load at Windows startup" checkbox in overclocking section.
Window caption is RUNDLL.
Text inside dialog:
Error in nvqtwk.dll
Missing Entry: NvHWCtl

It's the overclocking bit!
