Default Re: Odd thing with EVGA Precision and Afterburner

I noticed it when I was trying to get F-22 Lightning 3 to work where I bought it on steam. I disabled SLI then opened up EVGA Precision to bring my fan speed back up to full throttle and that's when I noticed the GPU 3 Temp was missing, and the fan speed read 0%. Just now that I started the computer I have an "Important Update" from Windows for the GTX 260 driver which it didn't do before. So, I don't know what's going on.
According to the control panel my GTX 260 is there, and is the dedicated PhysX card, and I checked the 260 and the fan is still spinning. No idea what caused this. Though I haven't tried uninstalling the drivers, running driver sweeper, and reinstalling yet. I was trying to avoid that since it's a pain in the rear.

UPDATE: Just installed the 258.69 drivers, and still the same problem. Couldn't be a weird bug where I am not using the 3-way SLI bridge for some reason could it?

"Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat."
