I'm getting BSOD

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Just to give you a brief summary of whats happening: I have two 7800GTs in SLI. Currently, whenever I have SLI enabled I get random BSODs. This ONLY happens when I have SLI enabled. On my old PC I had the following setup:
1) The two same video cards that I'm using now(two 7800GTs)
2) A8N-SLI Premium MB
3) Corsair memory 2GB
ETC...

I had my old PC overclocked for awhile, but then I started getting the dreadful BSOD. SO I decided to upgrade the Motherboard, CPU, and memory:
MY NEW RIG is as follows:
1) ASUS Striker Extreme
2) Corsair XMS memory
3) Intel Core 2 Duo...2Ghz
ETC...

I thought this new upgrade would get rid of the BSOD problem...WELL..it hasnt, so now what do I do?
Currently, I have only ONE video card in the MB.....maybe that will fix it.
Now I have some questions:
1) Why is it that I get a BSOD when SLI is enabled, but when it isnt enabled..the PC is stable?
2) When I had my old pc OCed...did I **** up one of the video cards..or BOTH of them?
3) Could my current SLI link be damaged?

Any feedback u provide will be appreciated!


P.S. All of my other computer components are TOP NOTCH..thats why I didnt list them....
