Latest everything is installed. I am running a Modded Beta bios however, so reverting to an official release bios is on my to do list.

^^ Thats EXACTLY what Im thinking. The only time I touched my first card, was to slide the SLI bridge on it, and it was tested 100% fine before. Ive even ran 3dmark and Heaven with both cards like I said when it WAS working, no issues no overheats, nothing. Its only after I tried 285.38 Beta drivers that the S hit the fan. The main underlying issue that started this was even with two cards installed, and visible to all software and windows showing both, Nvidia Control Panel would not show SLI options, all I had was Physx, and I never got a popup saying Hey yo,u can do SLI. Ive read that Code 43 has been traced to hardware, drivers, OR Windows components such as updates, which my machine is fully updated. I will be Secure Erasing my SSD and Reinstalling Windows with barebones drivers, and see what I can come up with.
After that, ill be switching the cards slots, and testing the cards individually. My hunch is that I either have a funky 285 driver download, or I botched the initial setup and there are lingering issues even a Driver Sweeper wont fix.
Thanks for the input guys, please keep it coming!
