    It's strange that this WQHL is listen under the beta section, and not under the main section :S

    This will be my first new driver in a while. The last one broke Alice so I skipped it.

    Works fine here with my 3 cards, even before restarting I was able to enable SLI again.

    You sure you installed via Custom/Clean installation method?

    cannot select SLi in the nvidia control panel (its not there), thus running in single gpu lol. I'm rolling back to 290.53 beta.

    edit - just re-installed the beta's, and 'set SLI and physX config' has now returned in the 3D settings menu. Odd that nvidia removed this from the control panel, of have they moved it?
