Hello there. I'm using my I5 3450 graphic chip to browse my desktop, so that's the only thing connected to my monitor. On the primary PCI-E port there's a HD5770, and I have no problem at all using both at the same time (gpu is processing datas). The issue is that I cannot view or change any of its parameters (temp, fan speed, core and mem clocks), using the Catalyst Control Center or MSI Afterburner. I tried to reinstall the drivers from scratch, but if the GPU is not connected to the monitor, the Performance tab in CCC just doesn't show up. If I bring settings back to default the Performance tab shows up, but as soon as I accept ToS it disappears again. Motherboard is an Asrock Z77 Pro3.
Any suggestion?
Thanks in advance.

Suggstion? Turn off the IGP and use the 5770 only. Running the desktop won't use up much GPU time from your data processing, and you'll also spare a few headaches.
