Re: Running into major problems on my first attempt at SLI
No luck ):
Did a clean reinstall of drivers complete with driversweeper.
Reseated the cards (after the testing each card in the 2nd slot).
Found a spare SLI bridge connector so figured i'd try that one. Popped in both cards, enabled SLI. Everything looked fine.
Apparently, on initial enabling of SLI everything works, but problems arise the moment I turn off my computer and then turn it back on and try it again.
