Enabling SLI (2x 9600GT on a EVGA NF44 SLI) - Page 4

post #31 of 43
Thread Starter 
Blue dragon had it right. I think it is the power supply. I got the second card in there now after bringing it back and this one doesn't make that loud of a sound. Originally, the old one did, but this one doesn't. When I have the 3800+X2 at 2.4, she doesn't run, and I get a blue screen when loading windows. But, if I put everything back to stock, it works fine. Thanks for the help guys, now I'm thinking of just customly putting a second thing in here (or it may just be that the cord connected to the mobo is drawing to much power on the overclock and not feeding enough to the card)????

I'm not sure if it's this way with ATI cards, but with Nvidia cards, you usually get a whining sound when there is a power problem, unless it is under a heavy load. There is a different sound to it under load though, but I can't describe it other than it's much higher pitched. As far as I know, when there's a whining sound it indicates a power problem.

That is exactly what is happening. The old card did the same thing, but was higher pitched (and did it by itself too, when it was the only card in there). This card doesn't seem to have a problem now but ya, it is more likely a psu problem.

Anyone know any good, but inexpensive PSU that would power this system? Don't need a crazy amount of wattage, but 600 to be safe (for a just in case cenario).

Plus, the new card still makes a noise by it self in the system.

I have a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 SLI that was not all that expensive, works great, and has gotten great ratings. $99.99 after MIR
