If you are crunching with a GTX980 on Windows, please update your driver to 344.16

I am seeing a very high error rate for 980s with the initial driver release, 344.11

Upgraded to 344.16.

I'm assuming custom/clean install is the way to go but I would like feedback from windows users.

Looks like 344.16 is a special release for GTX 980/970 only. This will be a problem for people trying to mix new and older cards in the same system, until NVidia can re-unify their driver packages.
