I tried switching cables around but that one always goes to 1 of 3 for some reason. I just messed around for another hour with different combinations and drivers going back to 344.75 and closing down nvidia control panel in between to no success. First time I've had a surround-breaking issue. I've been using surround since the first drivers that supported it aside from a 1 year break to eyefinity.

Maybe something is wrong with one of my cards or the SLI bridge. I'm going to see about returning/RMA'ing the new card. Surround works fine on each card till both cards are in the system.


This is easily the craziest thing ive encountered since ive been playing with surround. Im not sure what to suggest. With the 770s I used actual DVI to DVI cables until I got the ASUS monitors and they came with the HDMI to DVI cables I have used since on the 970s and now the 980s. If you have another SLI bridge you can swap that in though I seriously doubt that is the issue. Have you swapped the cards position out and tried again? I know im reaching here but this is a strange one. Ive used every driver released since the 770s came out except the very newest one to date and have never encountered this.

aren't the 9 series supposed to do surround all from one card? I mean, you're supposed to jack the monitors into just one GPU, even when you have 2+

and it was probably already suggested, but run display driver uninstaller from guru3d, then start over.

I've had driver corruption that prevents slI from functioning properly many times over the years.

Apparently EVGA GTX970 SC Gaming are not compatible with each other. The new card has the ACX 2.0 cooler and will not work my existing GTX970 SC Gaming.

http://www.evga.com/support/faq/afmmain.aspx?faqid=59534


So, now I have 2 EVGA GTX970 SC Gaming GPUs (new one has the updated ACX2.0 cooler), and they will not SLI or surround together... Tthe options are now grayed out, which happened a couple times while trying different drivers and a fresh OS to try to figure out why Surround couldn't be enabled, but I figured it was a driver bug. I purchased the new card from newegg and I did not realize how terrible their return policy has become. What a load of BS. mad.gif

Bait and switch. Nvidia and EVGA state that all same chip cards SLI, I even purchased 2 EVGA GTX970 SC Gaming cards to match the clocks/model/outputs on the back, then I come across this about different coolers not being compatible with each other because the boards are different. That goes against all the marketing and spec material I've found. Heck, I've even SLI'd 2 differnt resellers+coolers before with no issues (EVGA GTX275 SC + MSI GTX275 Twin Frozr).

I'm waiting to hear back from EVGA. I have a feeling this is going to cost me something even though the product does not work as advertised and the real reason it doesn't work is buried in some random FAQ. Really not happy with Newegg and EVGA right now.

So TL:DR: Different EVGA cards do not SLI even if they are the same series (i.e. SC Gaming). Apparently the PN has to be identical according to EVGA support.

that's insane... I SLId 670 and 670FTW, same for 580s... this must be some new arbitrary nonsense.

Luckily - EVGA SHOULD take pretty good care of you in helping you to resolve this issue.

I just heard back from EVGA, that was pretty quick. They are going to replace my older (non ACX2.0) card with a new ACX2.0 card.

this used to be the case... not sure when it changed.

i mean, his models were more identical than anything ive ever mixed together.

Yeah I have mixed and matched some really different versions of the same basic chip, thats why im wondering if EVGA themselves admitted that this was the problem.

If you ever do go with the plus 1 monitor on a 2 gpu SLI config, the plus 1 screen has to be plugged into the top GPU.

It was the same for the 770s, 970s and the 980s i run now.


Also, are you using any adapters? I have run into issues with passive adapters before.

Oh, this is great help. I didn't know if it was actually possible to do a 3+1 setup on just 2 cards. I have 2 EVGA 980 TI SCs SLI'd in Surround. I tried adding the 4th and couldn't get it to work. I ended up using the Intel HD4600 for the 4th. I'll have to try messing around with it when I get home. Currently I am using the DVI-D and DP on the first card, and the DVI-D on the second (I'll have to verify if its the DVI-D or -I).
