post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
As the title states, sorry for the noob question, it says its enabled in NTune but in 3DMark it says I do not have linked display adapters, why is this?

Make sure you have power in both of them, and that the SLI adapter is properly attached to both cards.

You could always disable SLI, then re-run 3DMark to make certain.

I would uninstall and reinstall 3dmark, I had an issue last night when it thought I was running at 3.6 Mhz, instead of 3.2. I am going to try the same as well and see if it fixes it.
