Computer Random Reboot...suspect it could be SLI but not sure...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone...

My computer specs are in the sig...except I just got another gtx 670 4gb...exact same card as in my sig just i'm sli'n.

While I was just playing Guild Wars 2 my computer just randomly rebooted...which totally freaked me out considering how much money I have in this setup. No bsod just a straight soft reboot. I have the newest drivers and I installed it correctly (uninstall old one, reboot, run driver sweeper in safe mode, reboot, install new driver). I also have the 1000W PSU, Cooler Master...so I don't believe the PSU is the problem. I wasn't overheating....was running the fans on the cards at 75% and getting in the mid 50s for temps...when I had just one card I would get the same temps so that couldn't be the issue. Only thing I wasn't sure of was my cpu heat...but not sure how that would've spiked out of nowhere...

Anyone have suggestions? I'm a rookie at SLI and I have a feeling this was something to do with it...

From google searching I was noticing that GW2 and some of the newer nvidia drivers haven't played nice together with SLI. I don't know if this had anything to do with it, but I hope so. I also was running core temp and my cpu never gets much higher than 50C so I don't believe that was the issue either...

Simple problem to test -- disable SLI for GW2 and see if the problem goes away. Go into NVidia Control Panel, click on Manage 3D Settings, click the tab for Program Settings, and find GW2 in the drop down (or create a new profile for it). Then disable SLI in the specific settings.
