SLI Issues(GTX 460's)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright so I have 2 GTX460's using the SLI patch with my mobo. For some reason after bringing my PC home from college I had some issues with the monitor not detecting the connection with my GPU's. So I took 1 out and all worked fine...curious I swapped the cards and same result.

Both cards work fine solo getting 70+ fps in OCCT, yet when I activate SLI which worked fine previously, I get 9-10 FPS. This is just unacceptable since I didn't break the patch be installing beta drivers or anything.

Thinking a PCI-E port might be borked on my board I bought an Asus M4A89GTD-PRO/USB3 today. Same issue.

Any ideas?

Current Nvidia driver version is 270.61

EDIT: Passes OCCT GPU memtest no errors at all

I will attempt the change in power management now, if that doesn't work a roll back may be necessary.

Update: The change to power management did nothing, I will report back after a fresh install of 266.58

gotcha, did you read up on this by any chance, it could help http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/6708...rd-gtx5xx.html


I would first try the power management mode, then the driver roll back, then maybe the 1.00 final patch with the 266.58. My drivers review showed the 266.58 perform better than all the others in most scenarios (Link in my sig)

Yep I read up on it quite a bit, confident it should work after a roll back and if not then maybe I will go all out w/ bios reset, install 1.0 patch, and clean install of 266.58 again lol.
