PROBLEM!! 2x EVGA GTX 570 in SLI

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

currently i have a problem with my computer system that i just dont know how to solve. i will try to explain it as good as possible

First of all my setup:

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k @ 4.5ghz
Motherboard: P8P67 DELUXE
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16gb
GPU: 2x EVGA GTX 570 SC
Monitor 1: HP ZR30W
Monitor 2: Samsung T260HD


Oke this is where my problem comes

#1: like once, twice a day i get a black screen with the message that my nvidia drivers crashed

i had the feeling that this problem came from my second videocard sinds i had a few problems befor with this card

#2

Monitor 1: HP ZR30W is hooked up by a DVI-D cable
Monitor 2: Samsung T260 HD is hooked up by a HDMI cable

as above everything works perfect, except i keep getting problem #1 (explained above)

- As soon as i hook up my second monitor through DVI-D my PC doesn't see my second videocard anymore, hooking the second monitor up through
HDMI again doesn't help, sinds no matter what my PC won't see the second card.

the only solution to this that i have found is by removing my second card from the motherboard and place it on the motherboard again a few minutes later (i know this doesn't make sense but it helps). As soon as i have done my computer will see both cards again in Windows (through HDMI) and i keep getting the black screens again...



NOTE:
- I tried multiple drivers (includig fresh install), and nothing helps

Does anyone here have a clue what may cause this problem and or how too fix this?


Kind regards ice600

As you have tried several drivers and none of them fixed the issue, I would say it is a lack of volts on one of the cards (especially if they are factory overclocked cards).

I had this exact issue with my 560TI and when I added a tiny amount of volts, the problem vanished, never to return.

Just add a tiny amount and hopefully this will cure your problem as well. If you are unsure which card is giving the issue, add the volts to both. It won't do any harm.

i haven't tried what you just said so that might be an option

as we speak i have upped the voltage a bit and hopefully it will stay stable now.

either way i will post if it's stable now or not!

thanks for your anwser

Today i haven't had any issues with my computer system

- No black screens (driver isue)
- SLI works fine

so upping the voltage of my GPU seems to be the solution to my problems

so far so good, will pay attention to it the next couple of days before i start celebrating smile.gif

Good to know smile.gif

I was bugged for months with this issue and read thread after thread with so many people having the same issues but linking it to TDR's and blaming Microsoft. Not always the case but very often, the slighest increase in volts is enough to stabalise the cards core clocks and allow problem free gaming.
