SLI 570's .. Help!! :(

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
It's not working

I've tried almost every possibility I could think of..

-Swapped over the SLI bridges (both cards came with one)
-Reinstalled drivers
-Google searched
-Tried 1 hooked up, then 2, then one on either side.
-Boot my PC up with just one in, uninstalled drivers, installed them, shut down and put the second one in.

Picture is of of my device manager up against my Nvidia control panel showing no SLI option under 'PhysX configurtion":

Clicky

My motherboard is a ASRock z68 Extrem4, 8gb ram, 2x570's (both running, but not in SLI :S)..

help!!

PS as a side note – what's PCI Simple Communcations Controller? Is that the reason why it's not working?

You don't have the option to enable SLI in Nvidia control panel?

which driver version are you using?

Edit: You need to put both in then install the driver again. Then reboot. Check "Clean Install" when installing the driver. Do a custom install. Uncheck Nvidia update, 3d vision, HD audio(unless you are using HDMI for audio). I only install Physx and the driver.

2 checks:-
1. Have you plugged in the 4-pin Molex on the motherboard for SLI/CF?

See the red arrow in the pic below.

2. Are the 2 GTX570s inserted in the 2 blue slots (see the green arrows)?
That is, do not use the bottom/last blue PCIex16 slot.

Check my 'cliky' link in my original post.

It has a screen shot of the PhysX Configuration tab, alongside my device manager.

I'm probably doing something really simple and stupid lol.

I'm going to try disabling the Intel onboard graphics and report back.

Cheers.

EDIT: Disabling the Onboard Graphics does nothing. I think you're onto something windfire; I don't have the 4pin Molex on the motherboard.

1. No, I haven't - what gets plugged in there?? Is it from the PSU??

2. No, 1st and 3rd slot. There's no way these two huge badboys are going to fit under one another.
