So two nights ago I updated to the 290 beta drivers from the 285.79 beta drivers. I wanted to see if I would get better SLI usage in BF3. I installed the drivers, and when I launched BF3, it was running between 20-30 FPS with 99% usage on card one and 24% usage on card two, but temps were low like they weren't being used. I tried a few other games, and the same problem. So I rolled back to 285.79, and everything went back to normal. Then last night it did the same thing, even though I was on the older drivers. So I re-installed them again (driver sweeper and such), and it was fixed again.

I just went to play BF3 now, and same thing; 99% usage on card one, 24% on the other, and chunky 20-30 FPS. Any clue what could be happening? I have tried multiple games and it happens in all of them. If I disable SLI, it works again. With SLI enabled though I am getting this problem. Thanks.
