What games are you experiencing this on or are trying to play, what is your load CPU and GPU temps (yes, load), and how long has it been since you've done a fresh format on your system?

Also, are you coming from an AMD or ATI GPU?

those drivers should be fine however Nvidia just came out with newer WHQL drivers today
GeForce 347.09 WHQL driver download
Geforce 347.09 WHQL Driver - Guru3D.com Forums
and make sure you use this to before you update
Display Driver Uninstaller Download version 13.5.4.2

And what fps are you getting?

DDU isn't necessary when moving between Nvidia drivers.

I've moved away from core temp, it's causes bsod on boot or crashes my whole system, I've heard others saying the same so if you have issues with core temp tey evga precision or MSI afterburner and enable your cpu temps

Does it monitor fps as well?
I really like MSI because its an all in one for me. Monitors all temps and percentage of usage. I guess there are many, so its preference.
I would steer away from my long time favorite CoreTemp though.

You don't use the install version of Coretemp, you use the standalone. Been saying this for a long time now. Never had a single issue with it.
