660 ti 3-way SLI

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

I have just bought a third addition to my 2 Palit Best Value Ti's*, but the third one is an EVGA SC 3GB*

I was wondering if this is all okay. just thought I'd ask. I didn't notice is it was 3GB model but knew that you can match up card different cards from different manuf. but with it being EVGA and 3GB i thought I would just check with yourselves and get any forewarning/advice.

thanks

Dava

like is there any work around like coolbits?

*could* I coolbits 1 palit and 1 evga.. as a set up.. then add the second palit once things had settled down?

Just to note: I have CHV formula coming, so its not my present board.

UPDATE: I read on other forums of people getting this working, but they lose the extra vram. no biggy to me, didn't think i was getting 3GB anyway. IF it doesn't work the back up plan is to use HyperSLI, which can let you SLI mixed gups, if you're reading this thinking what on earth is he going on about? HyperSLI is NV driver replacement, NOT done by Nvidia, but done from a kind dev. it lets you mix gpu's of different types, so performance is very varied, also use at your own risk.

UPDATE 2 .. 11/06/13 : ok so this didn't work.. well it almost did.. Coolbits 2.0 kicked in but then when changing res the screen went black and did not recover. I am updating to help others see what happened here. also I do not advise trying this.. this has caused many days of heartache and mental and physical exhaustion.. my ROG board has also been a nightmare..it would not show drives and boot at the same time.. if drive showed up it would not boot then disappeared. on thursday the LAN disappeared.. I think the network chip is fried. really! been working on this since the 6th and today is the 11th. I gave up this morning and just did a fresh of win7 removed the EVGA, stuck in a LAN card. and now getting back to normal.

to my memory it 3way SLI'd once without coolbits on friday night/saturday early morning in a fresh of Vista, it seemed stable but AGHAGAH I hadn't hooked up my drives to make sure it was getting power.. which kinda worked btw.. 3 cards on 850w.. AND..then I hooked up all the drives and everything worked.. well ill not say fine.. coz of said problems.. but everything worked on 850w.

advice.. just match your cards and buy ASRock or Gigabyte.. im off to ebay.. to window shop how to end this nightmare!

I have no RMA, please don't suggest.kindly.
