I just recently purchased a core i7 965, msi x58 platinum sli/crossfire, 2 295 gtx setup from cyberpowerpc...
Each card works fine as a standalone, i have the newest drivers, i properly unistalled the old ones, etc etc etc...the bios is also updated
But when i try to run in sli, by hooking up the cords and attaching the sli bridge, my computer wont boot up...my monitor just stays black
The blue output led doesnt turn on for my primary card (it does for the bottom 295)...I also tried plugging my dvi cable into the bottom card and that didnt work
"A second GeForce GTX 295 requires you to add another 300 Watts. You need a 1000 Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system. That power supply needs to have (in total accumulated) at least 70 Amps available on the 12 volts rails. "
The 4870 X2s in quad consume alot more, and I've seen ppl having 1000 Watt systems. Though what brand is it? Exact Model.
Lol in the title it says that its SLI capable...but then further down in the description it says SLI Not Available
1. i wish i would've read this more thoroughly
2. Screw cyberpowerpc for not properly labeling their products
Im really disapointed in these cards.First i have 2 295's and a asus board w 750 chip.These cards wont even boot with this board n causes crashes and lock ups.evga says theres a prob with the chipset compatability.second i switch bak to old dfi board and dual core.both cards are listed there and installed but cant enable sli.I take 1 out then i can.I doint think they for 1 can run quad in x8 and 2 arent compatable with 750a.Second you do have to have vista to run quad .im using w 7 rc maybe therews sumthin up there.
