I'm new to the community here guys and i just wanted to ask pros here about my problem. I have 2 Asus GTX 660 on SLI on my z77 Sabertooth but it seems that only one is in use....when i go to Nvidia Settings, it only seems to detect only the card on the 1st PCIe x16 slot....Even in the BIOS the 2nd PCIe x16 shows the status "not present"....I have connected the SLI bridge on the "Goldfingers"....any advice guys?

there are many things you can try out one after the other.

1st try updating the mainboard bios.

2nd remove the 2nd card from the pci-e slot and clean the pins of the card itself as well as the slot on the mainboard

3rd swap the position of the cards i.e. put the 2nd card in the 1st pci-e slot and the vice-versa. this will help you identify if it is the card that is causing the problem or the slot on the mainboard.

also check if you have forgotten to plug in the pci-e power connector to the 2nd card

Seems like I'm having the exact same problem, were you able to get the second 660 detected in the end?

Also update your motherboard drivers, not just the BIOS.
