2-3 days. I played gta V for a few hours. played fallout 4 and battlefield 4 no black screens yet. I do have some issues on boot though it shows like double boot screens on initial boot. Also i had screen flickering issues at very start but now its fine. lol Really strange but so far pretty happy with this driver. I might try the latest one but i also might try the one directly after this one.
NIce. Good to hear that man! I just started the experiment with the drivers, First is 16.3. Craimson. After a lot of days without BS on catalyst, i think my card is not faulty.
I uninstalled 16.7.1 drivers, used DDU in safe mode and shut computer down. Remove PCI-E 6 pin cables from my GPU, remove MOBO bios battery and reset my bios. After that, I installed 16.7.1 drivers again. 2 days without crashes or black screen!
Games I've tried so far: NBA 2K16, MGS V, Dark Soul 3, ROTTR, Witcher 3, GTA V. It can be coincidence since I played these games for 30 to 90 minutes (not hours) but it is worth a shot. I read in nvidia forums that CMOS reset solve black screen issues for GTX 970 cards.
Mine have been completely solved by rolling back to forementioned driver, and honestly, as long as I don't miss out on any new fancy stuff by staying at the current driver, I don't give a damn.
