GPU-Z 2.40.0 shows only 2 Fans, but my RTX 3080 has 3 Fans.

Is it a bug or a feature ?

By the way, I'm having two different GPUs in this Computer; could this be a cause ?

If you need mor information or want to check something on my box, contact me via PM / Mail.

"almost" all GPU triple fan configs are wired like this:
Fan 1
Fan 2/3

that's normal.

Ah, yes, just checked the possible settings in ThunderMaster and yes, you are right, I can only setup 2 FANs instead of 3 different.

Thank you very much
