[SOLVED] RSoD when SLI enabled 680 4GB - Page 4

post #31 of 80
Thread Starter 
I will try the 3dmark test tomorrow (different timezone here).

What I do know is that i've played all the games perfectly when the cards are either not in sli or just one card is in the mobo, no matter what slot it is in.
So i can conclude that the pci-e slots work fine and that the cards individually work fine too.

The problem is always in a fullscreen sli application such as benchmarking or gaming. I can run anything in sli in windowed mode but it goes straight
to the Red Screen of Death as soon as it goes full-screen, no matter how low the resolution.

After the above conclusions most think the bridge might be at fault but no, tried 4 of them (and not all can be faulty right?).
I'm thinking it can be two things. Either a driver issue that something corrupts with eachother or it might be my PSU not able to power it..(OCZ ZX 1000w)

@malmental, i have my cpu overclocked but turned it down to stock to make sure but no difference, and yes i have updated the bios for the mobo and my powersupply is gold80 rated or something but i don't know about the railings?(OCZ ZX 1000w)

and this is with a single monitor.?

also you might want to think about RMA process with your motherboard as the next troubleshooting step.
I know you stated that both 680's work and work in both PCI x16 slots (and individually in slots as well.?) but something still is not right.
jot down all the troubleshooting steps you have done thus far and it seems the only common denominator is the motherboard.
it's a lot to think about going through a RMA motherboard process and you might not take the possible downtime
but it's something to think about if all else fails..

worse case scenario I know but think about it...

yes single 2560x1600 monitor...I really hope it's not my mobo haha, saved up for so long and then now all these problems with my new rig..
Below i've listed all the things i can think of right now i've tried to fix it (i'll be edditing this for sure if i remember more)

-Tried different drivers, beta and whql
-deleted drivers thoroughly by hand or with driversweeper
-did fresh installs with Win 7 64x and Vista 64x with all the service packs and updates installed
-Removed the HD Audio driver from Nvidia
-Un-installed all monitoring software such as GPU-Z, temperature readers, ASuite 2 (comes with mobo and is actually good)
-Disabled SLI then it runs fine on one card
-Tested all pci-e slots with GPU #1, no issues
-Tested all pci-e slots with GPU #2, no issues
-Changed the SLI bridge with 4 alternatives, no change
-Added a 6pin into motherboard for pci-e power (only needed with quad-sli according to manual but tried anyway)
-Restored stable CPU overclock from 4.5GHZ back to stock
-Removed all RAM sticks but one
-Disabled the HDD and kept only the SSD with the OS
-Changed out the powercables from PSU to GPU to see if they had a fracture
-Tested if SLI is actually working with the sli indicator and benchmarks (in windowed mode that is and it shows activity from both cards at 98/99%)
-Checked if both cards have same bios, they do
-At one point I could launch battlefield 3 with sli enabled but it would result in really fast flickering screen, after a while i couldn't start it anymore and went straight to red screen
-Tried games in windowed mode (work fine) and messed with V-sync settings etc then put them in fullscreen..fullscreen = RSod
-updated bios to latest version

a long list so far but i'm sure i've forgotten some..

I'm swapping out the psu for another 1000w and swapping the gpu's for my old 280gtx's tomorrow and see if that solves it..if not then it's the mobo right?

only other thing i can think of is to try swapping the PSU out for a different one and see what happens

in the past I have had a faulty 850W corsair PSU that couldn't even power a i3 and GT630 so it could be that

something that is far from this issue but had some same symptoms: bad dvi connector on one card. Ended up rma'ing. That's really the only time i have seen a red screen. Most crash tend to lock up the game/app, bsod, or lost of video signal.


What's your physx assigned to?



If your 280s do the same thing, its your mb frown.gif

i've changed the physx to all possible settings (cpu, auto assign, gpu 1, gpu 2). I've tried the other dvi connectors and switched top and bottom card. If it was a connector that should've solved it..i'm starting to lean more towards psu for the moment to keep my hopes up..

Furmark puts a tremendous amount of load on your system so I doubt its your psu. My guess: one card is bad or bad mb thinking.gif

Usually a faulty psu would shutdown your system.
