Some people aso set one card to PhysX thinking it was SLI. so check the setting's in Controll pannel.
Yes SLI is turned on. Have been having these problems for about a month now, over many driver versions so I doubt that drivers are the problem.

In the Nvidia control panel, GTX570(1) is selected in the PhysX option but the box for dedicating that card to PhysX is not checked. Should I change that to auto-select?

What cooler do you have on your CPU? Will it hold an okay overclock?

Go here and put in your computer's information so we can help you a little easier.
Ok I will put all that information in right now. The PCIe lanes are 8x

The stock cooler for my CPU Can get a better one if needed.

Try auto select.

Depends on what motherboard you have. If the board will overclock that chip, a new cooler would definitely help keep things cool. It's also possible that the stock cooler might not be keeping your chip cool enough too, which would cause your CPU to throttle...which in turn would cause that low performance.

Use RealTemp to see how my CPU temp is going? What's a stable tempurature for my CPU to run at?

Put in as much info as I knew in the bottom section of my posts. Can text my friend that built it if you guys need more info.

Your CPU should NEVER pass 85*C. Use either CoreTemp or HWMonitor to check (both free, I prefer HWMonitor myself).

Use CPUz to verify voltage and what frequency your CPU runs at under load. You will need to give the CPU some sort of load (Prime95 works best for loading), to verify full load temperatures and that you're at the right speeds.

Weird... my single 570 i dont think drops bellow 38-42fps(ultra-msaa off-1080) and you have 2! I had a 560ti sli setup and minimum on ultra with msaa off was min of 40-50fps and over 100fps in some areas. I decided on just one 570 though for memory and a better sli experience in the future if needed.

Monitor your cpu use, I use coretemp and on their site they have a nice graphing tool, If your cpu is 100% and gpu much less you have a bottleneck at the cpu. My AMD at 4244 on average seems around 60% cpu use on all 6 cores. Wonder if intels 4 cores at stock is maxed on sli. You would need a better cooler though, but overclocking the cpu makes a difference in everything, not just gaming.

Didnt notice if the cards were overclocked, but maybe the overclock is unstable, but not bad enough to lock or crash, just cause poor performance. It happens with cpu overclocking so imagine same with gpu's (video cards)

Im with the other guy, make sure the 570's are in the correct slots for max bandwidth, also make sure the connection bridge is in all the way, although you would probably have other issues if it were the bridge. You already made sure sli is enabled, but i would leave physx on auto.

Decided to test it with RealTemp before getting your reply. RealTemp says that my all my cores were between 45-50*C after a 5min BF3 match.

Also, I think it should be noted that in MSI Afterburner GPU1 hit 83*C in game, and GPU2 was around 78*C. Is that bad? Should I turn down voltage?

Checking to see if CPU is bottlenecking me now.

Try a full Prime95 load on the CPU, and make sure it DOESN'T pass 85*C on the CPU. If it hits 86*C shut off Prime.

GPU temperatures are "fine" up to 95*C or higher. I don't like seeing mine past about 85*C at most. If your GPU's are getting that warm, just use MSI Afterburner and setup a custom fan profile. That should solve your GPU heat issues.

Did as you asked, here are the results. At the end of the full Prime95 test thing my core temps (measured via CoreTemp) were:

Core0: max 71*C
Core1: max 72*C
Core3: max 76*C
Core4: max 69*C

All 100% load. Also, in CPUz my core speed was listed as 3411.6 MHz - what it should be at the moment.
