Installed!!



It was really tight but managed to plug in the 6 pin power connectors. When I booted up nvidia control panel asked me to enable SLI. Enabled it, now is there anything else I need to do?

Windows experience index shows a perfect score Now time for the real test... play some BF3!!!

Thanks for the help all! Love OCN


Might need to get a full tower case when Dec comes....

OK guys I'm having some problems :\\ I did a clean install of drivers after I installed the card.

First hour or so I played BF3, everything was going great. Turned everything up to Ultra and the cards were handling it.

But now I can't play at all. After a couple minutes in the game, my entire computer just freezes, I can't alt+tab, go into task manager or anything. I've downclocked the cards back to factory settings and turned down all the graphics settings for the game but my comp still freezes.

Anybody have any ideas? Was playing perfectly fine on one 460, and was fine for the first hour of SLI

what are your temps looking like? especially for the top card?

also, try the new card by itself. maybe it is a bum card

My temps were roughly:

EVGA (top card)
Idle: 55
Load: 72-73

MSI (bottom card)
Idle: 27
Load: I think was something like mid 50's.

The difference in idle and load temperature earlier was about 20C. Now it's 28C :S Any cause for concern?

EDIT - I have auto fan control on
