Anyone else having lockups or BSOD's with 700 series cards after 36 hours uptime? I have it with my GTX770 and have to reboot before that computer hits that time, the beta driver released today is supposed to fix it.

Here's a thread about it at gforce forums.

I'm at 42 hours now and still going, it looks like it fixed it. I've been beating my head on the wall trying to figure this thing out until I found threads in different forums about it. It only effects 700 series cards.

I´m sorry about your head :-)
Nice that is working at your rig, that give me confidence as well.
Thanks again.

My head is fine, I'm worried about packing up what can fit in the back of my pickup if I get evacuated. I'm going to drive my restored Jeep CJ5 out today and start getting stuff ready, I'm so sick of the smoke.

Just to provide more info, I believe this issue (700 series will TDR/lockup after ~36 hours) was introduced in the 320.xx+ drivers, and was just recently fixed in the newest beta drivers, 326.80.

I expect a 326.80 WHQL within a couple days, though I've had no major problems with 326.80 beta.

The fix is documented, with positive results, in this thread:

The latest beta driver is now running on my rig for about 20 hours without problems. Seems a bit faster as well as the rig did a Santi LR just under 8 hours on 770. But it could be that some WU´s are little smaller of course.
