New build, Having trouble with SLI. HELP!!!!! Plzz

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i have a new p.c ontop of my 4.2 Ghz 8 core FX8350 - Asus GTX760 - 12 Gig Ram.

My new build is as follows
Cpu - Intel i5 2500k with Hyper EVO 212
Mobo - MSI P67A-GD80 B3
Ram - 2x4 Kingston
Psu - 1000 watts
Gfx - 2x Gigabyte 670 with SLI cable.

The problem i'm having is my computer won't detect my second card in slot 2 on the Mobo.
Also the option for Crossfire/Sli in Nvidia is not there.
The card is sitting in properly and both cards work in slot 1.
I have re-installed the drivers and tried leaving out the physX of the install as suggested on a Forum for a fix but no good.
The fans are working on card 2 in slot 2 as well but still won't show up in device manager or Nvidia Control Panel.

I have search a'lot of Forums so far and found alot of people with the same issue but no Fix.
The Video cards are new as is the SLI cable.

Is there a setting in my bios to enable it my second GTX and if so how do i change it? This bios is way different than my Gigabyte Mobo. Or is there anything else i could be missing?

Any help or FIX would be sooooo mint.

Thanks

Saw this on the MSI FAQ for that board: http://www.msi.com/faq/mb-480.html



I am assuming you are already using the latest drivers direct from NVidia? So this may not be pertinent.


Also noted that the GTX670 are not listed on their "tested" list http://www.msi.com/file/test_report/TR1_2313.pdf

I checked out Newegg reviews on this board... doesn't look good... a lot of RMA's.... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130581
