Dual GTX 480's in SLI Computer restarting Tags: Graphics Cards Gtx Computer SLI Graphics Last response: January 30, 2013 1:23 PM in Graphics & Displays Share zabusnorran January 28, 2013 1:41:04 AM I've got two GTX 480's in an SLI setup, and when I play games with higher end requirements they sometimes restart my computer. It just goes straight to a black screen, no warning or anything. Here's my system: i5-3570K @4.5Ghz with H80i Dual GTX 480's stock speeds, EVGA ASUS P8Z77-V PRO PC Power and Cooling 950w 80-PLUS silver 480's are hitting 96c which is normal, cpu stays at about 60c with the liquid cooling system. I'm using Nvidia drivers 310.90, I've tried a few previous versions with no results, I've also tried the SLI patcher to no avail. Any help or a point in the right direction would be appreciated More about : dual gtx 480 sli computer restarting lt_dan_zsu a b U Graphics card January 29, 2013 2:52:51 AM Try testing the cards individually, testing the slots individually. But if you are getting 96C always, that might be one of the problems. m 0 l lt_dan_zsu a b U Graphics card January 29, 2013 10:31:57 AM That is very reasonable advise and you know it. 96C is very hot for a card. If you want someone to continue hurting their card because you have a personal beef with me, you can go ahead m 0 l Related resources Tri SLI GTX 470's vs. Dual GTX 480s - Forum Dual 2gb ati radeon 5970's in crossfire or dual gtx 480's in sli - Forum quad sli gtx 480s vs single 780 - Forum Replacing my GTX 480's in SLI - Forum gtx 780 ti dual classified making computer restart - Forum Can't find your answer ?

One was faulty. FYI 90-100c is "normal" for gtx 480's. I ended up dumping the 480's getting a 660 ti and a 560 ti for physx, because.... half the heat etc m 0 l Mousemonkey a c 272 U Graphics card January 30, 2013 1:22:45 PM zabusnorran said:A little edgy there aren't you guy ?
