Finally got my ZE up to speed and working with the 2 x 2080 Ti's in SLI/NVLink. Turns out there were bent pins on the socket keeping the Quad Memory Controller from Running Quad RAM. To make it short and simple, fired up the first time with 4 DIMMS filled with 3200Mhz CL.14 RAM. Booted the very first time and everything works. Been tweaking and testing the last week and have got it running with my 2970WX @ 4.2. SLI/NVLink installed without one single hikkup or problem. Have even re-installed Afterburner and have the 2 cards clocked @ +48Mhz Core & +1000Mhz VRAM with temps not going over 79° during BFV or Port Royal DLSS Test, (with a very ambitious fan curve). Not sure what to say other than I tried SLI/NVLink with 2 x 2080 Ti's on 2 different systems, one the x399 ZEA and the other a X99 system with a Core i7 5960X and both had problems due to the 3-Slot design. The 4-Slot design with this ZE worked before and works now with no problems. The other 2 always led to some type of VBIOS corruption after a crash or BOD. BFV did cause 1 BOD in the beginning but has since not been a problem. I do have frame drops now and then and I am still investigating my background processes and trying to get my Project Lasso correctly configured but all in all I am satisfied atm.
And before anybody reminds me YES, I know that BFV doesn't support SLI/NVLink in DX12. But my card that does get utilized was getting real poor performance before with the ZEA when I had both cards installed. Now it runs like I only have one installed. Let just hope multi GPU will get support in the future in more DX12 games.
