I have 2 x 250 gts in SLi on a 680i mobo.
Sli has been enabled and is working but when i open GPU-Z it is still saying disabled at the bottom.
I have reinstalled it and my graphics cards, and the nvidia drivers but nothing has made any difference.
Any one know why GPU-Z is failing to recognise my SLi set up?

ive heard of issues with the 680i chipset when used with a quadcore CPU, dunno about SLI but Id say test games to see what performance u are getting at a certain resolution.

I am using a Q6600 with a very tiny overclock on it.

I am having no problems in any games and everything seems to be running as it should, i just cant work out why GPU-Z is telling me that SLi is disabled when it isnt,:shadedshu

When enabling SLI IIRC in the past you had to restart to get everything to detect properly. Have you done so?

If you can, throw out a GPU-z screen shot that way W1z can see what's going on via front panel.
