since you have this in the oc section, you're just asking about oc stability?

I updated it and didn't test on anything yet.

Overclocking, Case Mod, & Tweaking PC Performance forum, so it could fall into the first and last.

I may try them this weekend, but I will keep the others standing by due to stability issues.

I am running them and haven't noticed a darned bit of difference. Ran 3dmark06 as well and got pretty much the exact same sm2 and sm3 scores.

just wondering because I noticed a bit of "jitter" in WoW and some other stuff. From last drivers and these.

Jitter around the edges for some full screen 3d apps. None in windowed, or things like speedtree.

but could be my settings...gotta check settings this weekend

Ive just upgraded from 7.10, and 8.1 seems like a pretty good build. I doubt that ill see any performance improvment, but whatever.
