[SLI]Orange/Red/Pink Flickering during SLI 560 Ti (SLI HACK)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
(560 Ti by MSI... then just picked up a PNY 560 Ti due to my best buy gift cards etc or else would have picked up another MSI.. had to order the "asus" SLI Bridge on Amazon threw some ebay/amazon store.. Don't know where to find another around this area if it is the issue. read below)

Currently went back to just using my original card, but the secondary is still in the case... I have an asus bridge and I took screenshots to show you what any video game would look like (or 3d app, no 2D's) but the screenshots came out clean o.O.... if I unplugged the bridge and it was still set in SLI the screen would flush flash black back and forth pretty fast...

With it hooked up it would be colors and as I'd move the bridge around (as I found in a thread about Asus making crappy bridges.. and ofcourse I had to get mine on amazon due to my SLI hacking with the 890FXA GD70 Crossfire Board). so I am curious as if it is the asus SLI bridge???

Also let me add... Everytime windows starts up it asks me to choose the SLI hacked windows selection I hit yes. GPU-z shows SLI, and Nvidia Control Panel...

Ideas?


Very Aggrivated after me and my buddy F'd all the wiring into the new case and power supply I bought to get a better PSU and bigger case with more fans for the SLI... and got the card... spent 5-6 hours trying to figure out the newer modular style haha and how it worked on the mobo... I guess im oldschool got it to boot but HD's didnt work, so this dude at the lan center spent like 3 hours doing it for 20 bucks... straight with me...

But I am still VERY. Aggrivated.. I feel the other card is heating up much more than it should be? but I don't know how the PNY 560 Heats.

I have heard of bridges causing problems - you can try replacing it to be sure. Also, your temperature problem is expected, as one card gets more airflow than the other.

I've had a bad SLI bridge before, but it didn't cause weird color issues. It just lead to massive screen tearing in any 3D app, like the cards were completely out of sync.

Still, if your problem only happens with the bridge installed, that's a pretty good indicator.

You can get a new one fairly cheap directly from EVGA:

Or you can try the OCN market place. I bought one there a couple of weeks ago.

A 3way sli bridge won't fit on you're GPU's. The GTX560Ti only has 1 sli connector.

Found an MSI brand one from someone from full sail (my college) un opened and it works now. Although my 1000/2000 OC of the MSI won't stay with the PNY auto sets volts back to 1000, core to 950 (still an OC) games been running fine, I ran a heaven benchmark and I. Noticed small random black tearing issues on a few of the tests, but had a high of 176FPS with 44 low. Temp never got above. 52 on one card 55 on other. Once I find the safe way to remove the battery from mobo going to leave it out for 15 min as it should set them both at 16x adding antec adjustable cooler with an admissible stem that bends and is 3 speeds- still going to replace the new PNY 560 with my same MSI so I hopefully can get my stable OC back to 1000/2000 at 1.075 volts. Should I raise the volts on this OC??
