Default New GTX570 - Unstable machine error on 6806 wu's

Just got a new GTX570 installed yesterday. Been getting almost all 6806 wu's and over half of them get
"NAN's detected. Unstable machine error"

AFAIK this is usually an overclock issue = correct?
Well I haven't done any OC yet so... any ideas?
I used the standard GPU3 setup and have run without any flags on. (I turned on flag -Advmethods just now)

i7 920 at 3.6ghz
EVGA X58 SLI mobo
6 gig G-Skill RAM
Win7 64bit
I haven't been gaming yet but nothing else seems to have a problem.

A few questions you might want to answer:
No factory OC?
Temps are fine?

If it's none of those, delete fahcore15 and the WU files, then restart the client and try again.

-advmethods -local -forceasm is what you should look at and of course follow the above :)

Thanks for the replies :)

No factory OC = vanilla EVGA GTX570.
Temps are fine = never over 60 as I have fan set high.
I have already deleted the folder and did a reinstall - same problem.

I've been folding for 6 years and never had to use the -local or -forceasm flags before.

what drivers do you have? whenever i couldnt get a card going, given it was the only gpu in the system so i didnt have to screw around with desktop expansions and the like, i would try the nv specialized drivers.

I'm using driver 263.09.

Could very well be a driver issue as the card is still very new and nVidia might need to work on it.
I don't see a bunch of folders reporting issues with the 570 though or the 6806 wu (I looked on the Stanford forums and didn't see anything at least)
