I didnt know you could do that, thought the cards had to be identical in every aspect or you will get errors, maybe the GPU's are the same and model is the same, but is the memory the same? and when you run a speed on one card. The second card runs exactly at the same speed as the first card. Your not gunna get two different speeds, so you labeling your cards running at different speeds is wrong under SLI.
its perfectly fine... the cards are both 8800gt and even if one is a SC, OC, or KO it will just downclock itself to run the same as the other.
@Mmansueto... if im reading correctly even when you ran a single card setup you were getting BSOD's? if so, then prolly gona be he RAM...
As for Linus not giving you BSOD's, what happens when your hardware is OC'd too far and begins too fail? BSOD's are only bad when in situations like this and its so hard to find the problem...
If you read the whole post, you will see he has installed 2 diff OS, so its not a windoe=ws issue, its hardware... Linus wont help bad hardware.
Not that I have anything against Linus, just isnt good enough to fix hardware.
I only see BSOD's when my hardware fails. Windows is fine...
