I have no experience of Nvidia Inspector. Does this utility have a higher priority than Afterburner's so that its settings always override AB's?

Have you actually tried it together with AB?
And, what result do you get regarding GPU1 and GPU2 temp of AB for your GTX560Ti?

I'm not sure about AB and nvidia together, I don't use either of them permanently, I was just suggesting it as a method of adjusting fan speed temporarily to see which card is which.

I'm in the same position as you I have no clue which card is which

I have devised a method to test:-
1) Disable SLI in NVCP
2) Designate the card in slot 1 as main and the card in slot 2 as Physx card
3) Run a Benchmark and observe the GPU1 and GPU2 temp of Afterburner
4) Whichever one of GPU1/GPU2 has higher temp, it should be the card in slot 1.

I will do a test soon and will report back.

Edit 1:-

The method above works.
For my particular setup, GPU2 of Afterburner refers to the card in the topmost slot (slot 1).

Primitive way of finding out, i know...
This is a fantastic way to find out.

In Afterburner, you just need to uncheck "Synchronize the settings for similar graphics processors", find out which GPU you are currently viewing from the drop down menu above (ie. GPU 1, GPU 2, etc.), and the manually set the fanspeed to 100% for that GPU. Put your hand behind each card and see which one has the most air coming out.

Just make sure that the other GPU is still at AUTO fan speeds, if it isn't already, and you can monitor the fanspeeds as well, which should correspond correctly to each respective card.
