Just got done fighting to regain control of my machine. This display driver is cancerous. If you plan on testing it make sure you create a pre-install restore point in Windows. The driver install itself crashes the machine at best and at worst it bricks any graphics driver from loading at boot. Read this thread on Reddit for more issues.

 

My recommendation: DO NOT INSTALL!

Read this after I installed it but for me I guess I one of the few lucky ones. Good advice it to monitor your card after a new driver is installed.

Looks like your SLI setup did not like this new driver. My single 980 ti is working fine with it.
