Default Re: 470 or 480 SLi + Realtek Networking

I'm did not say everyone has encountered this problem or that they would, just if you have, try the older realtek drivers. Some people couldn't even enable SLi with that driver present, never mind freezing.

My system runs fine with the latest realtek driver and SLi disabled. With SLi enabled I'll get random freezing at times. If it's going to happen it's usually when windows loads. With the drivers provided by EVGA I can run SLi and any nVidia driver out.

So again, the post is for people who have encountered the noted problem and are frustrated or don't know what to do. It's definitely worth a shot for folks having issues.
