Check your cable to see if its secure in the input of your card.
Can you get into bios at all?
If you cant, remove the second card and get into the bios, and select pcie as your primary display in the advanced section.
Then try again.

Download the latest drivers from Nvidia and do a clean install by choosing custom install and clicking the check box for clean install.

Dont forget to enable SLI in the Nvidia control panel too.

should i use the X4 mode or X1(currently on x1) for my 3.0

Don't use the third slot , use the first and second.
When using the first and second it will become 8x8
The third slot is x4, dont bother with that one.

Overclocking is difficult to explain and some reading and experience really helps.
Best to check out this guide on how to overclock
