Here i come with FANTASTIC NEWS!

nVidia has released new "QUADRO & GEFORCE MAC OS X DRIVER RELEASE 304.00.00" Link:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/macosx-304.00.00f20-driver.html

This fixes the
1 - Blue/white Screen issue.
2 - Changing Resolution
3 - Turning Monitor Off/On again while in Mountain Lion.

What still is not working is the "Deep Sleep", that means: CPU doesn't go to sleep.

Example:
If i go to System Preferences / Energy Saver, and set the "Display" to 1 min. everything works, screen comes back after waking up by mouse click and desktop works.
But if i set the "Computer" also to 1 min, so "both" are set to 1 min., then only the Monitor is going to sleep but not the Computer (CPU), and by waking up by Mouse both are frozen, Display & CPU, cant move mouse etc.. Restart is necessary.

Everything else is working fine so far.

cheers.

UPDATE: I just confirmed that these drivers fix the fullscreen apps and sleep/wake issues described here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/127-nvidi...-630-graphics-cards-issues-mountain-lion.html

OpenCL is working with this perl script: (thanks lisapower!)

Code:
sudo perl -pi -e '$c+=s/\x8b\x81\x1c\x0c\x00\x00\xeb\x06\x8b\x81\x20\x0c\x00\x00/\xb8\x02\x00\x00\x00\x90\xeb\x06\xb8\x00\x00\x00\x00\x90/; END { printf "%s: %d substitution%s made.\n",($c==1 ? "Success" : "Error"),$c,(!$c || $c>1 ? "s" : ""); $?=($c!=1); }' /System/Library/Extensions/GeForceGLDriver.bundle/Contents/MacOS/libclh.dylib

I applied this driver for my GT 430. Everything works, but OPENCL is broken.
How can I enable OPENCL again? Does any one have solution for this?
Please help.

1- Did you try monitor sleep 5 min and sleep 10 minutes instead of 1 minute?
2- Did you try force sleep (little apple menu >>> sleep)
3- Did you try any of above with pleasesleep.app
I think is too early to judge if it works or not, and that depends on board x58 z68 z77 etc
CPU 1156 or 1155 Ivy /Sandy bridge in all cases with NVIDIA FERMI cards, maybe one methos for sleep works and another don't...Because some people reported as succesful, just my two cents:beachball::beachball::beachball:

It doesn't mention the Quadro K5000 in the product compatibility list. So this is probably just a bug fix/update for what ever the drivers were previously.

Looks like we'll have to keep waiting for the K5000 to be released.

Hi guys! Do I need actually install this drivers if my GeForce GTX 560Ti supports natively? I mean working without installing any additional kexts?
Thank you.
