Hi,
I just tried to overclock my new second card, which I've done sucessfully for my first card (3dMark11: P11465). I've read somewhere how to manage this in Control Panel and PrecisionX, but can't find the information again.
As I don't like to physically remove the second card, what do I have to do?

What I've tried:
Disabled first card in device manager: black screen.
Disabled SLI in CP.
Chosed 2 card in PrecisionX.
Problem: In PrecisionX the core clock keeps idling at base.

Or do I just plug the DVI-D in the second card?

Thanks for the advice. Yes, I want to get the most out of both cards. As my first card is a fine overclocker, I'd like the second card not to drop my scores.
So I just want to disable the first card while overclocking the second one to find out the highest possible clocks.

o ok cool. it seems like to me that you could right click on the desktop and go to nvidia control panel and there might have been a setting in there where you can turn off sli and move the control over to the second card. you will probably have to move the dvi cable to the second card as well.

not sure though have never actually done that.

They both have to have the same clock speed.

what he wants to do is see how high his new card can clock, separately from his first, with out taking the card out of the rig.

Yes, exactly that's want I want to do.

As far as I know, you need not to sync the cards. In PrecisionX you can opt out "sync" and let each card run at it's own (highest) clock.

Not in the 600 series, it'd be pretty difficult since each card boosts different even at stock clocks

Thanks, I'm looking into getting two 670's before the weekend. I want the EVGA 4GB with backplate, hopefully they will put some back up

Unfortunately if the second card is plugged in DVI-D 2, the screen remains black. I even removed the SLI-bridge. And in Nvidia CP disabled SLI. That's strange. I remember having GTX 570 SLI before and if plugged into DVI-D 2 the graphics worked.

well you know what I would personally do if taking the card out is not possible, just fire up afterburner and see how high you can clock the pair.

but keep in mind the clocks of the first card as well. You won't be disappointed

yup I was thinking you were water cooled or something to where you essentially couldn't pull the card out with out breaking down the loop
