Oh THAT driver lol. Ok I'll disable it and report back.

Ok I disabled them, and then as soon as I tried to switch to SLI it crashed and froze.

After reading this whole thread, I will do these if I were you;

1. Just for the heck of it I'll consider using another SLI bridge cable.

2. Re-flash both GPU bios. Download it from techpowerup - they have huge collection of GPU bios. Given this, I will make a backup of their respective original bios/es before doing this(I'll consider this mandatory).

I'm now feeling your frustration.

Still think you should try a single stick of ram, even though memtest passed.

Agreed.

It's weird that SLI stability all of a sudden went downhill out of nowhere when each card tests fine.

Also, do you know anyone who may be able to test your cards in SLI with your bridge on their system?

1. Alright, I've got to order one though

2. Ok, that'll be the next step after trying a single RAM stick (since that's a bit easier)

Doing it now and I'll post back with results.

I know, right? You'd think something like this would mean it's some sort of software problem, but if it was then a reformat would have fixed it no matter what it was.

And nope, I don't know anyone with an SLI capable board off the top of my head.

OP, we have the same power supply and I also have 480 SLI so if your PSU isn't failing, you should have no problem. I was encountering random restarts as well last week but strangely it had NOTHING to do with my PSU failing or any driver issues.

In my case, my DVD drive was shorting out my motherboard. So my advice is try disconnecting all drives and extra items like cathode tubes. Leave 1 HDD connected and try stressing and see if it crashes. If it crashes, try plugging that HDD into another SATA connection on your mobo. Its a worth a try

Refer to post #25
Tests 2 and 3 basically confirm the known fact that ''when each card is stressed individually, no problem occurs''.
Test 1 does give new hint: even without SLI, both cards cannot be stressed simultaneously. So, SLI (software wise(driver) and hardware wise (the bridge)) should have little to do with this crashing.

Further to my post #26, I made a mistake as I thought yours are GTX470 SLI (vs GTX480s). I apologize.
Now, I suggest:-
1) Corsair states (in the Owner Manual) that they do not recommend mixing native and modular PCIe cables to the same graphic card. They recommend: the 2 native PCIe cables (ie 12V2 + 12V2) to GPU1 and then 2 modular PCIe cables (ie 12V1 + 12V1) to GPU2.
See pic 1 below for an example of connecting two GTX480s.
So, try this configuration for improved stability.

2) Now, do Mafia II test (GPU1 as graphic rendering and GPU2 as Physx)

3) Redo Mafia II test (GPU1 as Physx and GPU2 as graphic rendering)

4) Redo the 2 tests above after switching 12V2+12V2 to GPU2 and 12V1+12V1 to GPU1

Ok well the single RAM stick didn't do anything. Still froze.

Alright. I'll try putting my pumps and fans on a different PSU and we'll see what happens.

Ok they're rewired, and I'm running the tests now.
