    2 gtx 970's sli wont work?

    I had the same issue with my EVGA 970s, one was the SC blower model one was the ACX 1.0 model, resolved by doing the same by using the DifferentSLIAuto tool, and worked fine. Now I score about 15.5K o/cing my cpu to 4.5ghz and mildly overclocking the 970s

    SLI Disabled on EVGA GTX 970s

    Well, per a suggestion on the evga forums, i got the SLI to enable using DifferentSLIAuto tool. Though im still puzzled why this was needed to get it to work since the 2 cards are identical, and even have identical Device IDs and everything else (according to GPU-Z), the only difference is the...

    SLI Disabled on EVGA GTX 970s

    Well the new bridge didnt help, tried swapping the cards no luck, they both individually work fine. I tried clean installing with 1 card, than adding the 2nd card after reboot, an that didnt work either.

    SLI Disabled on EVGA GTX 970s

    No, im not running any other pci-E cards. l will try the one card at a time thing when i get home tonite. And yes i updated the BIOS as well, and that didnt make a difference, Ive heard some ppl had issues with Realtek drivers causing problems with SLI?

    SLI Disabled on EVGA GTX 970s

    I got my 2 EVGA GTX 970s last nite in the mail. I purchased a superclocked blower model and the ACX 1.0 model to use on the bottom. Anyway, both cards are being recognized by windows & GPU-Z, but ive tried to get the SLI option to show up in nvidia control panel, but i cant enable it. I have...

    I ordered the the EVGA Superclocked Blower Model and the superclocked ACX 970 model, what would be the recommended way to SLI these 2 cards, blower model card on top and ACX on bottom, or vice versa?

    Nvidia 980/970 Availability Thread

    I see it now, I think ill just stick with my EVGA purchase though. I went with the superclocked blower and ACX combo from EVGA. Same price with shipping if i go to newegg, I had a good experience with EVGA before.

    Nvidia 980/970 Availability Thread

    Depending on the state, no tax was applied to my purchase in WA state. I went ahead and with the EVGA superclocked blower and the superclocked ACX card instead from EVGA (Cancelled my amazon.com order earlier). Better running the blower card on top and the ACX card on bottom in that configuration

    Project Denver Maxwell

    Ya if it got delayed a full 18 months and no ARM CPU onboard as planned, that would be pretty lame if that ends up being the case where this unified architecture gets pushed into the next generation Pascal or Maxwell refresh.

    Project Denver Maxwell

    Well thats disappointing that it got pushed back into the next architecture most likely. I plan on getting a GTX 970 or 980 anyway to replace my aging GTX 280.

    Project Denver Maxwell

    I was curious, since i havent read anything about it in the recent leaks of the GTX 9xx series that are the GTX 970 and 980 going to have the ARM CPU on board, or is this delayed till the refresh?

    is this video card going to have the Denver ARM CPU on-board that was laid out in the design specs for this card? I havent seen this mentioned anywhere....

    Interesting Trend......

    exactly man, i can run my i7@3.6ghz all day, and its as fast or faster than the extreme edition i7, I can push it to 4 ghz, but i dont like the idea of running lots of voltage to the CPU longterm, since i have an older stepping i7 .

    Interesting Trend......

    the athlons though went thru several evolutionary changes, socket, changes, architerture changes, etc. Unless theres an i7 killer coming from either AMD or intel, id like to be enlightened to that.

    Purchased a new rig

    i tried tinkering with it at 4 ghz, but had to increase the VTT and Vcore to 1.30, i can probably tweak it further, but the gain from 3.8 -> 4 would probably be negigable anyway.

    well i got the unit instaleld, its not too loud at all. I overclocked it to 3.4ghz with the FSB at 170x20, i got 18300 in 3dmark 06, going to 3.6 only netted about 300 more points. at load it only gets up around 40C at 3.4ghz, im running at stock voltage right now.

    Purchased a new rig

    i notice coolermaster has a "v10" model which supposedly outperforms the v8 model, although its HUGE! it states its a direct fit for a lga 1366 socket. The zalman CNPS9900 LED looks cool, but whatever is clever.
