EVGA GTX 580 Hydro Copper 2 3-way SLI + 1 EVGA GTX 480 Superclocked BSOD :(

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I've got a problem with my setup..

MB: EVGA classified 4 way SLI X58
CPU: i7 950 not oc'ed atm
RAM: 12 GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 @1600mhz
GPU: 3x GTX 580, 1x GTX 480
HDD: G.skill phoenix pro 120gb x2 in raid as main hdd

i had 2 x gtx 480 wanted a third since i prefer to play my games on 5760x1080, i put zalman coolers on em making them take up 3 pci-e slots so it was kinda full.
was thinking of buying the 3rd and make them all watercooled but my urge to buy got the best of me
so i went for 3 580's

put it all in, hooked up 1 screen to each card GPU 1,2,3 (580s) on screen 1,2,3 and the TV to the 480
installed everything no leaks etc. decided to start with a fresh install on the complete OS.
latest drivers etc.
went fine so far, so i went to the Nvidia control panel thats where it began.

put my 3 screens on surround that worked, then i went to manage multiple monitors
and i wanted to enable my tv as second screen(since the pc recognises the 3 as 1 big screen),
when i checked the box *FREEZE* reboot, BSOD, reboot, black screen freeze,reboot,
this time my 480 was just gone from the list in device manager but the system held up.
guessed my 480 was overheated and turned off its the only aircooled i have left.
nvdia control panel, tried to enable the tv, again a bsod.
reboot went fine till i went to the nvida panel again.. FREEZE.. after many tries i managed to turn the TV off again and it went fine as long as i didnt game or watch a vid or something.


so i asked my good friend google for help, came up with a few things..
*up the voltage to 1,2 so i did.. that helped, less bsod
*remove the nvidia 3d vision drivers and the HD audio drivers. didnt notice anything.
*used the drivers (fresh install) that i got with the card instead of the latest (according to one post i read).. but that made it worse.
Want to play BF3 beta and you need the beta drivers for that so i just tried it. from what i noticed just as good as the latest drivers.

now it was fine (without my tv so the 480 wasnt in play) started a game and i played for 40 mins before it froze again. i only read about one more option (update my ssd firmware) but i dont really see the point in that.

anyone got any idea about what i can try or if it's even possible to put 3 on surround + my tv hooked up at the same time.
i would be happy if it just works with the SLI 580 setup too, then ill remove my 480 put in my old pc and hook that up to the tv.

Thanks in advance.

honestly this sounds more of a pain then for what its worth. If you have a spare pc to throw the 480 in I'd just do that. Maybe set the 480 as dedicated physx? Welcome to ocn btw :-)

thanks for your reply.

i did try to make it physx dedicated, but didint help and opening the nvidia screen and altering any option kept causing freezes.

after 1 freeze yesterday my 480 was just gone from my hardware list and didnt see it since tho i didnt touch my hardware
so guess ill just have to remove it.. seems most of the bsod/freezes are caused by the 480 because now its gone and i can play for like 30 mins before i get a freeze while when the 480 was shown i didnt make it past 5 mins without a bsod of freeze
