Gigabyte gtx 970 sli question - Page 2

post #11 of 42
Thread Starter 
Just found out something interesting. I was looking at my bank account and it seems Micro Center mis charged me for my GTX 970. it was supposed to be $294 plus tax $314 or something and then I had a $50 gift card. the total when I checked out was around $264, at least that's what they told me. They only charged my card for $186.33 I looked at the receipt and it confirmed it. going back and trying to figure out what happened It looks like it got an additional 25% off the price of the card. either way I am not complaining just a little shocked. I did get it installed last night and setup, but no testing yet.

I am a little concerned I might have a bad card. I am hoping that it is just something with the setting. On my lunch break I thought I would try skyrim. it worked fine not issues, but definitely not stressing the system. Next I loaded up Aliens ISO. before I could get into the game the computer shut off and rebooted. Odd I though. when I restarted I check the gpu temps. they were both fine sli said it was on, all setting looked good to me at least. Started Aliens again. when to video options the screen went black and the computer locked up. I looked over and the leds on the new 970 were dark. the other card was still lit up. I shut the system off and rebooted. I then downloaded the tool from http://www.geeks3d.com/gputest/download/ to test the graphics. I set it to my screen resolution and started it. about 3 seconds in the screen went black and the new 970 shut off again. I powered down and by that time it was time to get back to work. any ideas what to check? this is my first sli so I might have something wrong. btw I am using the sli bridge that came with my board. it is the 3 way sli not the 2 way ribbon. I liked the look of the card better then the ribbon. I read that the 3 way will work for 2 way also. the new card is being powered from the same cables that my old 970 was being powered from.

Sound like PSU overload to me but its very easy to know what's wrong there.. Just replace the power cable between the card and test again if the new card LED switch off when the problem happen then you should try that card alone thumb.gif

which PSU you have there ?

Thx for the quick reply. I am using a Corsair hx1000 it should have more then enough power for this. I could use a different cable coming from the psu, but these are the braided stock ones that are not part of the modular system, and they are the same cables I used when I had a single 970 and I had no issues there. I ran two new modular cables for the old 970. I can try the ribbon bridge if you think the pcb bridge might be causing some of the issue. Tonight I could try it with just the new card. one thing about the soc force board it I can just turn off the pcie slot without removing the card.

Also is it worth trying this? On my board it says

"OC PEG adds auxiliary power to the PCIe slots of your motherboard, improving system stability in extreme configurations. This is especially useful in power-hungry 4-way graphics configurations."

I would not think a 2 way SLI would require this anyone else need to do this with the z97x-soc force board and sli?

It's worth a shot connect the OC PEG cable no one know how gigabyte design that board thumb.gif also the switch to turn off any PCI slot is very nice will help you test the new card without take the old one out

Ok thanks. I will try other test before the OC peg, it is really hard to get to the PSU to hook up new cables. It took about 15 mins to get the 2 new cables hooked up for the new card. I can barely get one hand in there and can not see it at all. I have to try to get my phone in and take a pic then go by feel from looking at the pic on the phone. then take a pic to make sure i got it correct smile.gif

should I take the pcie bridge off when i turn of one of the card slots, or does it matter?

Ok I shut off the pci slot my older g1 was in. I removed the sli bridge, then disconnected the 6 and 8 pin power from the old card. I hooked my monitors up to the new card and booted the system. it seems to run fine, until you put it under a load. I tried the benchmark tool from 3dmark.com I ran the skydiving one. it started showed someone skydiving then the screens went black about 5-10 seconds after it started. the computer was not locked up and I could hear the chime when I disconnected one of the monitors and tried reconnecting it. only way I could get the monitors on was to force a reboot of the system. the led on the 970 did stay on this time while the screens were black, but the card was not working. anything else I can try, or does this sound like a bad card? I was wondering if updating the bios would help it is not the latest version gigabyte shows on their site. I have not upgraded a gpu bios though so I will have to look up how to do it if it is recommended.
