Please PM me your detailed system specs.

Try DVI on your video card and see if the issue is still there.

msiALEX..on the z77 mpower board..why is that 6 pin there for the gpus when its a sli board? will it help overclock my lightnings further? im about to upgrade to a 1250 watt psu so i can get the extra pci to use it? i currently have an 850 watt.and my cards will oc to 1430mhz in sli but any more than that i get a powerdown cause my psu is too small to cover that power they need. i like to bench alot and every little thing helps. so im asking if its a waste of money for me to upgrade to use the 6 pin or just get a 1000 watt for the extra headroom? any help would be great.there are alot of mixed opinions on the forums and i would like to clear it up..thanks

*Not to speak on Alex behalf.. but the 'Aux' power was implemented after folks started welding the 24pin connections on the mobo's running 3/4way setups [on previous platforms]

 

 Aux power provides secondary supply to mobo plane which feeds PCI-E voltage and other components. It wont necessarily boost your OC.. what it will do is allow you to run high OC safely with multiple GPUs wink.gif

yes i understand but its on a sli board..that can only run 2 cards..and it was designed around the gtx 680 lightning searies cards.so its really killing me inside to really find out..im getting my 1250 watt psu tommorow..(had to smooth it over with the wife). but if msialex tells me otherwise il just go with a 1000 watt and save 50 bucks..but my 850 isnt enough for sli oc to 1430+ in sli with an i7 3770 at 4.8 with 9 high performance 140 mm fans and some other things. just need more head room..im sure a 1250 would be best that way in not running it at max with gameing.leaving some room and less stress.

 There are 3x PCI-E slots.. the mobo is perfectly capable of running three cards..

 

**and although I havent heard any horror stories of welded 24pin's since the 680's have been out... that doesnt mean it isnt still possible. I know I wouldnt want to find out the hard way and loose a mobo and PSU redface.gif

I see no reason why you could not.. the board features 3x PCI-E 3.0 slots [when coupled with proper CPU.. which you have].

PCI-E on Z77 with Ivy bridge = 16x PCI-E lanes total ... that is it

 

3x way = 8x8x4x in PCI-E 3.0...  so keep in mind this is still as much if not more bandwidth than 16x16x8x in PCI-E 2.0 thumb.gif

**on another note.. Im working on pushing my 2133mhz kit to 2700mhz biggrin.gif ..getting close now.
