GTX 660 Image coruption (green flickering) when in full screen

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, just got my SLI bridge yesterday & finally been able to SLI my 660s.


The thing is when I enabe SLI, with my older 660 connected to my monitor via DVI-D cable, all game I played got corrupted by some greenish flickering light when in full screen, although desktop & playing movie was just fine

took the corrupted image with phone camera 'coz when I captured it from Afterburner the image would turnout to be just fine with no corruption at all. But when I switched to windowed mode when gaming, all the corruption & flickering is just gone.

I tried reseating the bridge to no avail, I'm begining to wonder is it my monitor is the culprit (highly unlikely) or just bad driver (I have the 332.50 installed on my win 7 & 335.23 on my win 8.1) or the slight discrepancy in clock speed that did it (older card is 1163 max boost while the newer is 1150 max).

In the end I switch the position of my cards, the newer one (connected to monitor) hooked to 1st PCIe slot & the older down to the 2nd slot. Voila, all the flickering & corruption just vanished in full screen mode.

I was wondering if my older card is begining to show some age 'coz I often play with it with some off-set core ?

By the way when I tested them separately, both of them is working just fine. Any thoughts ?

If Windows captures things correctly the issue is most likely the cable.

that was I thought, but I tried reseating the bridge twice to no avail before finally I switched the cards position.

I tried using D-sub to dvi to but the results is just the same. What do you think about no flickering when in windowed mode ?

Yes, the DVI cable. Have you tried the GPU's HDMI or DisplayPort connections?

I think that if Windows doesn't see it that its something in the connection to the monitor, and if it doesn't happen in windowed mode that the monitor is fine.

My monitor is quite old, doesn't even have HDMI albeit DP frown.gif
But the thing is, after I switch the cards, with the newer 660 now connected to my monitor via the same DVI cable, all is working well again, in both my win 7 & my win 8. That's what make me wondering if there is something wrong with my older 660.
