My System Specs

Default Monitoring Multiple Video Cards

Well this is my first Multi GPU setup ever, so naturally I'm gonna have a question or two.

What does everyone use to monitor their Clocks/Temps when running/folding on a Multi-GPU setup?

Precision only shows the Main Card that I have plugged in, not the 9800GT.

I'd like to be able to make sure both are running optimally and, of course setting the fan speed on them would be a bonus.

Regards,
ST

For temp monitoring and such I use GPU-Z. There is a drop-down box in the lower left to choose which card you want info on.

You can use Rivatuner to change fan speeds, overclock, etc.

What Version Are you running?
I've got 1.4.0 and it only shows the stats for my GTS250.

I have no problem using the latest Precision on both the dual 260s, and the dual 275s.

I just went to EVGA's website....
Dammit, I am running 1.4.0 and they have 1.7.5 (or something) on site.
That could possibly be the reason

Damn PEBKAC issues..

Thanks Guys.

I have no problems either.

On a side note, how often do you guys monitor your temperatures/ppd?

Always, while I'm working on my rigs.

Then if I wish to monitor on a longer run, I open GPU-z.
