SLI is working fine, the cards are also fine as far as I can tell since they are working in all games as they should. My P Vantage score is above 20000. Warhead does utilise SLI somewhat, my average FPS are higher with two cards vs one. Can you run a couple of benches for me?

Download the Warhead Benchmark tool and run the Frost (plain) level and the Airfield Flythrough at Enthusiast DX9 1680x1050, let me know what it scores.

I would say the min. FPS is caused from loading all the textures into memory as its in the first 100frames each time more along the lines as 28-30fps lows.

Guess i should add i normaly run my shadows on gamer as they are the system killers.
