  1. Some games (such as Skyrim) don't have great SLI Profiles. The game will usually use all of one card's power but next to nothing on the second. You can try making sure your drivers and Geforce Experience are up to date.

    I know the SLI isn't the best. But i should still be able to get 60fps with my setup. And everything is up to date.
  3. Have you reinstalled the drivers?

    sorry for late response. and yes i have
  5. Did you enable SLI through the Nvidia Control Panel?

    yes, already did that - like i said, great benchmark results, bad game fps

  8. Do you have shadow play enabled? It kills my FPS when it is enabled. It doesn't play well with SLI.

    Are you running vanilla skyrim or is it modded? It should not really matter with your setup but I have seen with my rig where some texture and lighting mods have caused severe slowdowns. As for WoW see if it is running in fullscreen windowed mode as I have seen that cause slowdown to happen with my system. BTW SLi works in windowed mode but you do lose some performance. Also what are your system temps like in game?
  10. I realize this is an old thread, but I'm surprised no one answered this already and someone else may have the same question.

    You mentioned you're benching great, so it sounds like your SLI setup is probably working alright.
    The issue you're likely running into is your CPU.
    WoW and Skyrim are both very CPU intensive (particularly with mods), and your FX-6300 is likely bottlenecking.

    Try mildly OCing your CPU if you're adventurous and see if you get better results.
  11. I have the same problem here...I have sli asus gtx 760 direct cu II + 16gb ddr3 1866 + cpu 4930k (3,9ghz 6 cores 12 threads) + ssd sansung evo 840. I have all ultra settings .
    I disable sli on nvidia control panel for skyrim and game stopped fps drop . 60 fps solid...but its sad needed to disable sli ,because not only not improve quality but worsen.
