nvidia drivers, my bad for poor explanation, also check under device manager and make sure its not listing your 660 ti anymore, if it is disable/delete it

The catch is you can't run three 690s xD

Yes, that's right, but I said better as in the scaling of two high powered gpus as opposed to four lower powered gpus. I mean a lot of games have no problem with two cards in sli or crossfire vs four and it should be smoother with two cards also, imo.

I would think with two GTX 690s in quad, the scaling after two gpus(first GTX 690) isn't so great. Maybe 50% for the third and 25% for the fourth(2nd GTX 690 added)? I could be exaggerating.

But with two Titans, you get 100% and then 90% for the second gpu.

And yeah, that vram of 6gb vs 2gb for the gpu muscle.

Running one GTX 690 with 2gb isn't an issue though, atleast for 1200p, when I had it. Faster than my GTX TITAN that's for sure. I just like trying new things, so I sold the 690 and bought the Titan.

i must agree, i got to try the titan as well as 2 690's before i settled on what i have now and for a single monitor setup even at 1440p the 690 is a beast and ill take it over the titan any time, though as soon as you sli the 690's they go down the tubes, you actually lose fps in alot of games because it just cant scale with 4 gpus.. maybe in future games it could be useful and properly coded and optimized both on devs side and nvidias guess we just gotta wait to see right now though for those that have the money, 2 titans no questions asked is the best setup you can run imo

So I finally have the 690 in my possession! biggrin.gif







Only one problem, and it's fairly significant. The holes on the mounting bracket don't seem to align with my case.





This is pretty baffling. The card itself fits fine and is roughly the same size as my 7970. My case and mobo (NZXT Phantom 410 and Z77 Extreme 4, respectively) are probably a bit cheaper than some other GTX 690 builds, but I don't see any good reason why it shouldn't fit properly. Am I SOL here unless I want to do something tacky like duct tape it together?

That is actually really weird ive never seen that happen before in my life, i honestly have no idea you might be sol in all honesty but maybe anther forum member has an idea up their sleeve

I think something is blocking it from seating correctly in the mobo. Maybe the bottom flange is bent a little or some cables on the right side.

I'll have to check again but games and benchmarks seem to be running mostly as expected (case is on it's side atm). Would that still happen if it wasn't seated perfectly?

So use one of your fingers, and push it up 1/4" to where it is supposed to be.

I have had this happen on tons of cases, I assure you the PCI slot will be just fine with a couple degrees of what appears to be misalignment. It should be fine.

Not sure what “mostly” means, but if everything is working perfectly that would tell you something. The spacing is fine from a vertical point of view, like Masta said you just have to push the card up a fraction. But it looks like it is not all the way to the left of the case. That is why I thought maybe the two metal flanges that slide down there were pushing it to the right or something like that.

Thanks for the tip.

I uninstalled and swept NVIDIA drivers and also reinstalled Steam from scratch. It worked fine for 30 minutes this time LOL. After that the same thing, Bioshock crashed and when I tried Tomb Rider, it just stopped loading the environments as previously behaved. I will return the 690 and wait for the release of the 780 tomorrow. I really wanted to love this card but for some reason it did not work in my rig.
