If you are using 196.75 NVIDIA drivers, better go back to a previous version

If you're like me and always updates to the latest video card drivers, there are ones that you might want to step off of for a bit. Version 196.75 of NVIDIA video drivers have been pulled from NVIDIA's website amidst reports that it can cause cards to overheat and possibly die. The reason being: the fan control portion of the driver doesn't seem to be working correctly.

It actually took a bunch of StarCraft II players to complain and therefore make Blizzard find out the root of the problem. I would hate to have a very expensive part of my machine go down because of a driver issue so again, if you are using NVIDIA 196.75, uninstall and go back to a previous version.
