Running Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, Core i5 at 4.4GHz, and two Geforce 670 GTX cards. I'd like to lend my spare cycles to BOINC (SETI@home and world community grid in particular), but kepler still isn't supported.

a) what the hell is an optimised Cuda application?
The options are Either, Or, Or, not Option, And, And.
So for a), the Lunatics offer optimized applications, for CPU and GPU. But not so much for Windows for the time being, as they have a copyright issue with using one of the Intel compilers. Which means that this is no option for you for the time being.
Which then moves on to option b), use a driver lower than the first one having the problem. In you case this can be the 301.42 driver at http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-64bit-301.42-whql-driver.html. But you claim you can't do that as it interferes with your gaming. Tried the older drivers yet?
Which leaves us with c), you wanting to use drivers 306 or higher, then you'll have to fill in the environment variable. Which in Windows 8 goes like this:
All you have to do is add the variable named "CUDA_GRID_SIZE_COMPAT" and give it the value "1".
Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that in many ways, you can be considered an alien conspiracy!

My case. I tried creating the environment variable but still had errors. That was 15 days or so and don't remember when did they occur. I only remember that without the environmetn variable, fermi tasks ended after 11 seconds of crunching. The new variable solved this issue but either there where errors at the final stages of crunching or the validations where always inconclusive (or something like that. Sorry but cant give more info on the subject because I no longer have acces to my failed tasks on my profile).
I have decided to stop work for SETI now because of this (currently crunching astropulse only, but my client only gets about 4 tasks per day, maybe 2 hours of activity each day) and give this resource to other projects. Will return for SETI work when this is fixed.
