From the article:
The open-source NVIDIA driver developed by the "Nouveau" project is done through clean-room reverse-engineering and as such they have large hurdles to jump...
I've long held the opinion that the nouveau driver is more bug-riddled than a sandwich left on an ant nest. Now I know why.

I use the closed source drivers. I have one of these three slot beasts
and have to put bricks on top of my case to stop the tower from levitating when the five fans kick in.
