I have 2 gtx 275's in SLI. A message came on today saying that the SLI bridge is missing. Out of cuiousity I opened my case to see it actualy was missing. I doubt if I have removed it, because I would have remembered, but back to the point: it was no where to be found. At the moment I have a crossfire bridge and a 3way SLI bridge, my question is if I can use either of these to connect the 2 cards. As a guess the 3way should work fine, right?
another thing that is bugging me is that speedfan doesn't give any temperature readings on the graphics cards, this happened after I installed 190.56 beta drivers, I reverted back to 19.3x? something, but I still have no temperature readings. Anye ideas what is happening?
i've actualy un-installed everything related to nvidia and then installed them again, but hasn't hepled yet. what a silly thing to loose. also i get the invalid argument message in nvidia control panel. this happens only when i want to customise the fan speed - gpu temp chart.
Well the only way you will know if you have a dead sensor is to do a System Restore making sure its rolled back before any changes were made... Once that is done it should fix the issue, if not then you most likely have a bad sensor and will have to use a temp probe to monitor CPU temps......
worst case scenario is i can take them back for guarantee, right? xfx does that i think. not too much harm done, but silly of me to not know where i put my sli bridge! i dont even know how long it has been disconnected for! LOL
Just an update, I reverted back to the 186 series drivers, everything is working fine now, the temps are being read, 3way sli bridge is working, life is good
OvrClkr, I have a question I think you may have the answer to, say I have a core i7 920 running at stock 2.66, and also a 950 underclocked to 2.66, does this mean they have the same EXACT performance? or the other way round, if I overclock both to for example 3.5? from what my noob eyes can see they have the same specs on paper, so are they the same in the real world?
