...didnt see an indication you ran it alone, but that aside if it works fine I would look at a driver issue, I know you tried current ones...but I would go into safe mode use driver sweeper to remove the reinstall...if that fails try an older version, I had some issues with drivers on a non sli system that this fixed

1. Are you using PCIe slot 1 and slot 2? (not slot 1 and slot 3)
2. Try each card, one at a time, on slot 2 and see if that card can function properly in that slot

one my board it accepts using pcie SLI 1-2 slots. but not 1-3 slots.

Hmmm... when you say it is not detected until you reseat the power connectors and/or card, do you mean it doesn't even show you have two cards, or it doesn't detect that is can be run in SLI? If it is the latter, try a different SLI bridge. If the former, it might be a bad PCIe slot, which you may be able to confirm by moving it to the other PCIe slot. If that doesn't work then it may be that you may have a bad board.

I would want to move my 2nd card to the bottom PCIe slot, with my case (HAF932), there is no open slot in the back to extract the airflow from the card.. It would be blocking the bottom part of the card, which is the airflow...

I've heard of similar issues from the bridge being aligned upside down. Sounds completely silly, right?

It's worth checking.

It could be your second PCI-e slot that is failing. It happened to my MSI board that I owned. Pfft, overly pissed.

Well I took out both cards tried them in the first PCIe slot standing alone, they both work fine I ran the free version of 3DMark11 on both cards

When I threw the 2nd one back in the 2nd PCIe slot after testing it alone, It showed up in my system, I ran the 3dMark11, but no FPS increase really. Should I see the FPS's doubled seeing theres 2 cards now running in SLi?

Here is my graphics card properties is this the only thing I need to change to get the most out of the 2 cards?
