You need 2 cards for it to show up in CP and a bridge for the option to be enabled.

try disabling SLI and then run vantage again

Because in all honesty... i have no idea how the 275 performs

Try using driver sweeper in safe more to remove all nvidia drivers then reinstall again. You probably have some old drivers floating around.

This works on my H55m-D2H with two 470s and the modded 285.27 drivers.
Second slot is an x4 so it cripples performance but it's better than a single card and I had two anyway.

I don't think 4x makes that much of a difference. I read an article somewhere where it says its much less of an impact then many think. We never fully utilize x16 or even x 8 slots from what i have heard....

You'll lose a few % points on a 4x PCIe slot. Only High End dual GPU cards really have a notable drop when used on x4 slots.
