@ kibatz: Of course that's true for 14, I meant to say that on 13 you can use 173. But this topic is for helping 3pinner with his 6600, and please do not assume he has the same fan speed problems as you, since he has a very different card. IF a user reports fan speed problems, 173 could be worth a try, but since many people do not have such a problem with fan speed, it doesn't help to tell everybody beforehand that they will get problems. Instead of driving people away from 3xx drivers, I would rather have them try it first.
@ 3pinner: please ignore the lenghty discussion between kibatz and me, just try the drivers in the repository (nvidia-current, nvidia-current-updates, nvidia-experimental-304) and see if there is any of them which works for you without causing additional problems. Note that nvidia-experimental-310 does not support 6000 and 7000 series cards.
