nvidia surround setup issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i recently purchased 2 gtx 465s that unlocked to 470s(10 chips and black pcb) i have 3 22" monitors and was trying to play BF3. i just purchased a new mobo: p8z68-v pro gen 3

i installed one card and everything is fine. i installed second card and everything is fine. after playing a bit(even in windowed mode) a couple errors popped up:

monitor stopped responding
and
graphics card not plugged into an optimal pcie port(or something along those lines)- iwill update if it happens again.

my monitors are 1680x1050 and i was running at 5040X1050
the computer froze and crashed a couple times.

when i disable surround but keep in sli, top gpu is at 70 while playing and bottom is at 46ish. not sure why.
dont have any crashing under reg sli. any ideas?

According to the NVIDIA website, 5040X1050 is not a supported resolution for 3D surround. It has these listed as supported -

5760x1080
(1920x1080 per display)

2160x1280
(720x1280 per display)

3840x720
(1280x720 per display)

not sure if that's the problem, but it's something I'd look into.

well im not using 3d surround, im using nvidia surround, no 3d. not sure if it makes a difference but i have like 20 options of rez to choose from. ill post up in a bit. i think my issue might be between BF3 and nvidia surround. i have heard of instabilities. im goin to try with BC2 and see if it works better with that.
