I have a system that is not working for me!!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have spent two days trying to get sli to work on my msi 890fx board. I started with crossfired ATI 6950's I should of stopped their! But no one ever said i was a smart kid. After wiping out my pc(i just use one pc for gaming so if i wipe it out its not a big problem). All info is backed up on my main pc. So I wiped out my pc and installed sli patch from oc form and gtx580 drivers and when I apply sli settings everything goes blank. cpu 1090t amd x6, gpu x2 gtx580's' h70 cooler for cpu at 3.808mhz I think this is my first build. I am just a little mad now I think If I switch to the I7-980 and asus dom 3 my system will work. I know this basic pc knowledge but I need some help please. If this is a re post in any way I am Sorry.

1) When diagnosing problems, revert to stock clocks.
2) Any particular reason for jumping from 2x 6950's?
3) Driver?
4) Did you simply 'acquire' your copy of Windows?

so you are using the SLI Patch verson 1.0...

you have a SLI bridge (not using a crossfire one)

and you are running the latest drivers?

nvidia don't suck, the sli patch isn't guaranteed to work on every amd mobo, so you can't blame nvidia for not working in SLI when you are using SLI hack on crossfire mobo.

what resolution and game do you play that you need 2 gtx 580?

did you give it maybe 30 seconds for sli settings to be enabled? when i ran gtx 460 hawk x2 in sli with sli hack, when you enable SLI monitor goes blank for maybe 10 seconds and it turns back on with sli enabled.

regardless, use the nvidia driver supported by sli hack final 1.0

Since price is obviously not a factor just go buy an SR-2 with 2x Xeon 5680's and 3x geforce 580's?

It's kind of retarded to dump a bunch of cash into a PC if you really don't have a significant requirement.
Also, why not 3x 30" 2560x1600 displays?

its not nvidia causing the issues, its the board. that chipset wasnt designed to run SLI because its an AMD chipset.

if you wanted SLI OR Crossfire to work on one board like they were designed to, you should have gotten an intel board.

fill out your system info if you want help

anyone feel a bit sketchy with the genius with 6 posts who has an absolutely unlimited budget and the spelling/grammar of a 12 yr old?
