Gtx 680 utilization issues...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello ocn been an avid reader of ocn for some years now. With only a post or two recently. Running a new rig and am looking for theories on my sittuation.
I've 2 zotac gtx 680 amp ed.'s and in sli mode the utilization is horrible. Playing games like crysis 3, black ops 2, bf3, sleeping dogs and a number of others only game I'm not worrying about is arma 3 given its development state. I've actually never seen above 53% on either cards. And fps rate is about the same when using a single card @ 99%. Except bo's2 I actually see 10-20fps less with sli. Am I missing something? Using latest drivers. Tried the beta but it gives me red and green flickering in arma 3.
Only thing I can think of is being short on power but I feel it should blue screen if that were the case. Anyhow here are my rig specs and a pic. Thank you all for reading!

Strange, at that resolution scaling is pretty great. Are you certain that you are running in SLI?
