I have them installed and see no difference in performance other than being more stable in BF4 ;)

If it's not broken, don't try to fix it!

I subscribe to a different mantra:
If you have the patience and know-how to realize and troubleshoot any new problems, then backup your data, and go for broke!

That was already fixed in the version prior to 326, as I had these 35.47 hours or something like that they explained.

They say at the top of the page: "R331 Game Ready Beta Driver", and we are not gaming here. So I would say the same as skgiven, if it works fine now, leave it alone. In a few days we can read all about the new bugs it generates...

Have been running on them since the hour it came out. No issues that I can see except the fact that my overclock can't go past 1035Mhz mark.. could be an issue.

It does indeed!

I have installed it on my GTX650ti system and my GTX590 system as well as my Titan system.

Although the GTX590 system has had one TDR since then I think that was related to a power problem.

The GTX650Ti system and my Titan system are both running strong and steady (been up for 3 days at least).

So for me at least there has been no downside to installing the 331.40 beta drivers.

And I think Firehawk and Jacob Klein would also agree since I installed after their recommendations.

It would appear this video driver has resolved "access violation" issue that I was having for my TITAN. Thank you

I concur. GTX Titan on Win 7 64bit running smoothly now w/o those pesky access violations. See stderr.txt content posted here. That's a giant leap forward. Thx to anyone involved and reporting this.
