Won't Run SLI

Hey there so here is whats going on im trying to get 2 GTX 480s to play on 3 screen but it wont show anything about SLI in the nvidia control panel (i have a SLI bridge)

here is the odd bit if i drag a game onto the 3 screens it plays aobut 60-90fps on NFSW or Minecraft and tekkit and others

But will not do it on its own or show sli at all just physX conf

so i tryed this i unpluged my 2 displays and tryed just one with sli useing 2 cards to play a game but it will only use 1 again no sli in the control panel

i have reinstalled the drivers a few times and im running 310 tryed 313 same problem

    It's a Crossfire only motherboard, that's why SLi can't be enabled.
