i just upgraded to a 6700k, asus maximus viii extreme, 16gb ddr4 , but i didnt reinstall windows , and i am running my computer at safe mode now, at normal mode my computer was so so so slow ,, is it because the old motherboards drivers are interfering with the new one ?

not sure but would def try a reinstall. prob driver related if it's working better in safe mode. I always do a fresh install when upgrading processor

You absolutely have to remove the previous drivers.

not your forte...well my follow up was going to be; Can I test single card OC without pulling the cards out...?
I already took a peak at their bios and both seemed identical.

Here's the bios if you wanted to check them out. I'm not sure what is different between the two other than different memory makes.

I think you can do that if you disable SLI. They will be recognized both as single graphics adapter.
post #13806 of 16227
if you want to bench each card w/o pulling/swapping *i think* disabling the other in windows device manager might be an option (after disabling SLI as goldii3 mentioned).

i'm sure the boost tables and whatnot are the same for all SC+ cards. however, pretty sure i have seen things get flonky for others (card has no video out until flashed back to "stock" bios) when flashing different vram.

side note:
this corsair strafe kb blows chunks - getting BLUES FTW!

Yes, you can run the single card in the top slot. Just disable SLI, and then disable the 2nd card in the dveice manager. I do it all the time.

So before I go ahead and screw things up and have to reboot/safe mode fix

I was able to turn off SLI and test (did not know disabling in DM was necessary too) Was actually surprised how well just one card held up in ROTR at 1440p max.

Now...I've kinda of trailed off on what it I was testing.

Is Hynix or Samsung memory better? is OC the only way to test this? if I wanted to test the second card would I need to swap or just move display cables over to it?

And for Firestirke testing, any tips? should I look for an average or 3 runs or just take the highest, turn off all other background apps? I usually always play games with chrome up on the other monitor (YT or NF)

Sorry for the flurry of questions, I'm still on the fence about keeping the SLI or selling the "lesser" card, just getting hit with the ol' "I paid a lot and it doesnt also make toast"--feel. I really want to keep them. but playing on a 1440p monitor at 96hz, doesnt feel like I'm pushing these beasts. but any further upgrade will just bore deeper holes in my already depleted pockets, in other words, I bit more than I could chew.

Both Hynix and Samsung are fine ram. What I have noticed from keeping track of others reports is that the Hynix ram has the potential to clock every so slightly higher however the Samsung ram takes advantage of using tighter timings so at the same clock the Samsung ram will yield slightly better results. With that said however outside of benchmarks this really doesn't change the game play experience so I wouldn't worry about it very much.

For testing each individual card without swapping cards I believe the only card you can easily test is the one closest to the CPU once you disable the second card and turn off sli. You can prob disable the top card and switch the video cable you are using to test the bottom card but I unless I am mistaken the bottom card will still remain at x8 instead of x16 link speed so there will be slight variations. They should be very small but I have seen a slight bump in scores when comparing x8 vs x16.

As far as keeping the sli I personally love my sli. Do I push the cards to the max in every game? No but you will be surprised even at 1440p at how many games will max the two cards out while trying to maintain the high refresh rate you are trying to achieve. Nearly all recently released graphic intensive games will require more than one TI. The downfall however is you are at the mercy of SLI support. Most games are quick to update however there are several like doom that seem they just don't care to implement proper sli scaling.

IMO keep the second card for a couple months and then decide. At this point it's already paid for and if you sell it later you can at least answer the nagging voice in your head that says maybe I should of kept the card.
