As my specs say, I am running a mediocre eVGA GTX260 with the software eVGA Precision Tool. This program works great in keeping an eye on my GPU temps. Before you recommend any of other programs that monitor this and many more components, that will not be necessary. The front of my case has a digital temp monitoring display BUT the videocard is the only thing that does not work on the display device temp monitoring thingy. :)

Toms Hardware has an article on the new nvidia drivers and how it dramatically improves performance on many mainstraim games (oct 5/09):

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-geforce-ion-game-tweaks,8790.html

Naturally, I downloaded it. Unfortunately, my temperature option is completely gone from the eVGA Precision tool. Windows 7, I downloaded the latest eVGA Precision 1.8 and power cycled my PC after I noticed the defect to attempt to correct it (just in case you ask). I am not some idiot doing this shit. It just disappeared. I've had this same instance of windows running since yesterday, 0 restarts. It was working fine this morning while I was blowing up Denmark in Empire Total War. I know, i'm a nerd. :)

Please help!

Well I'm about to install those drivers too, have to see what happens. GPU temp is responsible for fan speed, hope it still works or these drivers will be bad.

Odd, no issues on my end on W7. Running the newest drivers, 191.07, EVGA Precision 1.80, gtx260, and everything works like a charm.

Same, but on Vista.

Odd thing about these drivers were they didn't tell to restart (like every other driver so far), but did anyways.

go to register editor find:

RmThermalProviderNum
RmThermalProviderInfo

make backup just in case ...... delete them ..... restart..... and you'll have your correct temps readings back (I've tried it my self in v191.03 Beta and its working ...... I'm sure its the same here).

drivers worked fine for me, both with just installing over the old drivers, and doing a fresh install after uninstalling old, and running driver sweeper/ccleaner, temp still shows up

Just to be sure, there is multiple keys for each that I found in registry, make sure you remove them ALL. I did not uninstall drivers, just ALL keys and reboot.
