I just installed this (the app, not the iso) and it's causing my cpu temps to spike like crazy. Is this normal?
By the way: I was actually looking for Driverpacks, and trying to download the installer for them, so I shouldn't have to go the slipstreaming route, but for some reason, it wouldn't download from Mediafire. So, while looking for an alternate, I came upon Driverpack Solution.
Does anybody know of a way to download the Driverpacks standalone installer other than Mediafire?

The original Driverpacks.net is still being supported, they just changed the download method to torrent only for the drivers to save on bandwidth costs. I thought they closed down also until recently.

This app uses the Driverpacks.net files, http://driverpacks.net/docs/driverpack-solution. Works well from what i have seen. I think that it changes the oem support information to its detials.

I have been using DriverPaks for a while, sometimes I just use the network card and then download the updated drivers from the manufacturer's website. I only update them about once a year or so.

DriverPak Solution I installed on a test machine of mine and promptly uninstalled it. For some reason it installed in яussian and my яussian is kind of яusty. It also installed a browser hijack and toolbar. Just the idea that they would bundle it together made me question their integrity. So now I just use the native driver search function with my disks.

Yep, I just gave it a spin last week after seeing it mentioned in a thread on here. It changed the Manufacturer name and OEM logo in the System Properties screen. That was all that I needed to see. Will not use it again.

With version 12 that option was enabled by default, but it can be disabled with a few clicks.

I suggest using SAD2 with the lastest driver packs from driverpacks.net. Search their forums for more details.
