GTX 480s refusing to go SLI...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody,

I've spent the last three days trying to get my two gtx480's running in SLI, and simply put, my computer won't have it.

Specs first: (of everything but the gpu's)

EVGA 780i SLI mobo (P10 bios, treatin me well since I got it)
Q9450 cpu at 3.2ghz (1.25v) (stable under a noctua nhu-12p at 56*C stress load for 6.5 hours prime95)
4x2x 3GB Mushkin Ascent XP2-8500 at 5-5-5-15, 1055mhz, (2.1V, stable memtest for 15 hours, cool to the touch)
Just a OCZ Vertex 2 60gb for now, since rebooting so many times takes forever on my 4x WD 1TB black edition raid 5 array.
Corsair HX1000W, (stable as hell, never had a problem, and runs 2x gtx280 and 1x gtx480 just fine, so power shouldn't be a problem).
Misc: antec1200, antec spot cools on NB of mobo, and on ram.

Here is a list of the stuff I have tried and rulled out before I go on:

- Power supply - can run 2xgtx280 and 1xgtx480 no problem full load furmark (gtx280 sli) + fluidmark (gtx480 as physx) no problem. Also tried putting the gpu's on sepperate rails (my psu has 2), in literally all the configs possible, with no avail...
- Ram - Prime 95'ed it for 15 straight hours, didn't even get warm to the touch, no errors/failures.
- CPU - Tired at stock freq, no difference, running at 3.2ghz for 3 years now, prime95'ed a lot of times, 6.5hours yesterday, not a problem
- OS - freshly installed windows 7 home prem 64bit on a Vertex 2 60GB, can't get less issues than that...
- Drivers - With the 280's, any driver that is suppourted works no problem. With the 480's, no driver works, and when I install any driver (anything from 285.38 to 296.10) doesn't work... BSOD (nvidia driver error, or just no reason listed), black screen & jittering sound, or straight up restart when it hits the windows 7 logon screen...
- Firmware - Flased both gtx480's to the .82 firmware, made me able to work windows in safe mode and without drivers
- Heat - Just cleaned all the nvidia gunk off, and put some MX-2 on the cards, cleaned out all the dust from heatsinks, fans in good condition. Also running near a windows, which is putting 8*C air into the case.
- Mobo Bios - Tried everything from P06 to P10, with no changes... (properly installed (default, flash, default method).
- Bad cards - Both 480's run perfectly fine by themselves, furmark for ~3 hours each is no problem, bf3 for ~6 hours = no problem.

btw, these are OEM Nvidia cards, if that helps.

At this point i'm stumped, since I'm currenty running 2x gtx280 and 1xgtx480 at 99% load on all the cards no problem... With sli on for the 280's, and a 480 dediacted to physx... Any ideas?

400

Thanks ahead of time for any help.

I was thinking that too, but both of them work just fine individualy. I'm able to run anything, stress them, overclock and such no problem. It's wierd.
I'm tweaking my Northbridge and such voltages now, I think they might be dropping too much when the cards kick in...

Is there a proper way to install drivers onto two cards when in sli? Or is it just plug em in, and install?

It might be the bridge if you tried everything else. Try a different bridge if you can find one or simply move the bridge over one to try the other two SLI connectors on the 480s. All you do is install the drivers normally.

After putting the bridge on, you should get a notification when you boot up that your cards are SLI capable. Then all you should have to do is hit this button:

And your screen should flash and that's it.

Just tested both card individually (just to double check), one is working perfectly, the other one black screens.... Looks like we found my problem.
The second one works after a hard reboot, but the dies after about 2-3 min of furmark, the first one seems to be in good working order...

Thanks for the help, seems that my problem was me not double checking the functionality of the second card (I kid you not, it worked yesterday and stress tested successfuly).

I got these for free, and since they're OEM nvidia, I have no warrenty... Any fun way to try to fix it? (I'm quite good with a soldering iron and hot air tonguesmiley.gif) (also have a good oscilloscope if there is any way to test like that tongue.gif).

I shook the card around, to see if anything was loose, and behold what fell out of the damed thing...
640

It's a capacitor, with a value of ~2.9 or 3.0uF it's 2.46mm x 2.46mm x 3.44mm. Time to rip open the card, find where this bugger goes, and then whip out the soldering iron!
