A touch of trouble with my SLI
My setup consists of an overclocked i5 2500k, 8 GB RAM, ASUS mobo, and 2 GTX 570s. When playing a game recently I noticed only one of my GTX 570s was running most of it (ie around 75%-100% with the other at 5%). The game stuttered at certain spots so clearly it wasn't a case of simply not requiring the 2nd card. So I opened my control panel and noted that SLI was off, and instead it was set so that the 2nd card was dedicated to PhysX. When I turn on SLI the computer appears to apply my changes. Yet quickly there after, half of the screen goes blank and the other half flickers vertical lines in such a manner as to render the screen unusable. I of course tried the classic tricks. Restarting, Re-seating the SLI bridge and power connectors, and changing up the monitor's connection. Yet nothing worked and instead just shifted the flickering lines about the screen. Eventually I was able to get my cards back into their previous setting and they work, yet not in SLI. I would quite like for them to work in SLI, so I ask: have you any suggestions for this annoyed gamer?
Thanking you kindly,
