Using Single-GPU in SLI rendering mode is working. I'll test older drivers
So far, I've deleted all the drivers with driverfusion, installed 306.23 directly from asus http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/NVIDIA_Series/GTX680DC24GD5/#download
Now ac3 is working great in SLI, buyt bf3 and skyrim shows a red screen now
In GPUTweak the liveupdate says my card has a bios update but it seems to be uninstable, the client crash when it's time to update or it says cannot connect to server.
However on the same download page the is the same bios version 80.04.5B.00.AS10 (I'm currently at 80.04.5B.00.AS05) that is suppose to : Improve stability in SLI condition
Anyway I downloaded that file and when I extract the .exe and double clicking on it, it seems to do nothing at all.
Is the game still playable, but the screen has a red tint or flicker to it? Or does the screen just turn a solid red when you start the game?
If the screen has a red tint or flicker it is likely a bad SLI bridge. I had that issue with my GTX470s, and it turned out the flexible bridge was bad, I replaced it and the problem went away.
Not playable at all : http://youtu.be/Rfs168WHmis
But the game seems to run fine.
With 310.70 WHQL there is no red screen but it's like if 1frame was correct, one black, one correct, one black, etc... so for people who have epilepsia it's not a good idea.
Using drivers 310.33 and 310.70(WHQL) http://youtu.be/9lcp3e_9i6w
didn't tried yet : 310.54 - 310.61 - 310.64 - 310.70(beta)
And the only way to enable SLI is with CoolBits set to 18
Finally I've installed all driver from 310.33 'til 310.70(WHQL) and they are doing the same thing.
I wish I could help you, but I'm out of ideas as well.
The only thing you can do now is take the cards to a friends system and try it out and see if it works.
can you return the 4gb and get a 2gb ?
they don't have any 2GB...
I've done the vbios update and got a little gain...
cant order one online ? return for a refund ?
wut gain ??
Flashed vbios to 80.04.5B.00.AS10 on the 4GB and now I can enter skyrim (60 fps stable, vsync is on as I see) and bf3 without problem (but i'm getting 10 FPS)
For skyrim, forcing vsync off in nvidia control panel get me 300+fps in the cave tutorial now...
At least one good news
ok.. don't know why... but nvidia cp did set alternate frame 1 in sli mode.. did a restore and it's working great right now...
