Enable rpm fusion stable release (test release will mess up ur system):

Now try the kmod-nvidia driver, if its available for ur kernel. If not try the akmod-nvidia. Also install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.

Type this commands:
su -
sed -i '/root=/s|$| rdblacklist=nouveau|' /boot/grub/grub.conf
mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname  -r)-nouveau.img
dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

Now edit xorg.conf:

gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and add

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "IgnoreABI" "true"

If still failed, then sure, its a bug. Just wait 1 more week to release the final version.

I even enabled rawhide repo, n it fucked up my system twice. 

Hey, do I need to reinstall OS if it fails?

everything. I'm using KDE. How can I install drivers? The default
drivers doesn't support full 3D.
