  1. @ sorrento, not on my system bud, both gpu's under full load don't hit 30c, they idle @ approx 21-23c, only time I've seen them over 30c was before I fitted the DD water blocks!!!!. Cpu under full load don't break 30c (prime 12 hrs). Another fresh rebuild last night, various combo's of drivers, bios etc, same results. Using 84.21 driver and it bangs along in any benchmark ! 3dmark06 on 93.71 = 5628, with 84.21 = 7483. Going to let Nvidia know there beta 93.81 is no good for me either. Anyone had this sort of issue, are third party drivers and bios (gfx cards) worth a go next?:sad:
  2. Thx for your reply bud, I've tried every combo of chip set & gfx driver going modded ones, beta ones, even the latest beta 93.81, all DFI bios, etc, & I know how to remove the drivers correctly as after close to 1000 times you don't forget. @ lunchtime today, i'd thought i'd try latest beta driver 93.81, no result still poor fps in 3dmark06 opening screen. Anyway still totally pissed, I've gone back to 84.21, frame rates back up by avrage of 30-40%, makes a hell of a difference to the fps & overall score in 3dmark06 & games. Well to conclude, having spent 5 months working on this problem, using a total of 9 different SLI rigs 4 my own & 5 mate's, all nvidia drivers from when SLI was introduced, + chip set, etc, etc. it appears that some cards (different manufacturers) will work & some will not correctly in SLI on the expert mobo, note same with my second expert & two of my mate's expert mobo.:confused: If anyone has any comments on the subject, please feel free as I'm @ a total loss with nvidia 9 series driver in this current setup. I'm not blaming Nvidia, DFI, BFG or any other manufacturer in anyway as from my post, 9 series drivers work with some SLI configs, it's just so dame frustrating when it's your own SLI rig has issue's. Reckon I may build my system on the NF4-DR SLI instead of the expert, it's either that or another set of high end cards ????
  3. Hi all, wondered if you could help me out. Problem is SLI (Drivers) maybe, I'm using 93.71, on my two Gainward 7900gt's no problems whatsoever, good scores in 3dmark06 etc, etc. After a fresh install of xp with my 2x BFG7900gtx's fitted, latest drivers etc, etc, I get poor/low benchmark scores, I tested the cards in my nf4-dr mobo, no problems, only when these are in the expert the (slow issue occurres) wtf !!! is going on ?. These cards are new from BFG (re-cons) supplied as I RMA'd the originals due to banding problems as with most OC'd 7900GTX's. I can now rule the cards out from being defective as they work in my second rig & my mates asus mobo on the latest drivers. The Gainward 7900GT's on 93.71 work great in expert The BFG 7900GTX's on 93.71 go slow in expert Both sets of cards run fine in the DR mobo ? Any help you guys could give would be greatly appreciated, been banging my head over this issue for too many months now !!!! Thanks, Stressed Tom.
  4. Update, tried last known config - no go!, tried safe mode - no go!, cleared cmos & reinstalled windows @ lunchtime inc SP2, so when I get home to night here we go again!!!, going to let windows update itself before I apply my OC settings & save the stock bios !!! Thanks to all who gave suggestions, I'll have to wait & see now whether it was updates that screwed it ?, you think after 6+ hrs of prime & various benchmarks things are pretty good & stable, fingers crossed:)
  5. Thanks guys for the couple of suggestions, it was a complete freeze, no mouse or keyboard, I'll try last know good config first, as I'm sure it was due to windows update ?. I rebooted whilst they were downloading a few times. My Raptors are in raid 0 stripped, & all check out ok on my second pc, the windows installation was fresh last night @12am ish, I'll try and save it before I reinstall again !! Benchmarks were good & pc was very stable before going to bed and running prime over 6.5 hrs. Just wondered about my bios version, is it worth updating or just cause more issues ?, i surpose I'll never know unless I try it. I heard that the later bios ain't that good for SLI, can anyone confirm this? Memory timings appear ok, no gfx problems in benchmarks caused by memory & the corsair checks out in memtest 12 hrs+ I'm back home at lunch so I'll try some things then if she lets me !!!!
  6. Hi All, first post so hope it's ok ?. Problem = having run prime for 6.5 hrs stable, I unfortunately received windows updates, stopped prime, left 5 mins then accepted windows updates, pc the hung (frozen). Reboot & and now blue screen (bad checksum) ???, anyone got any idea's, had to goto work so had no more time to investigate. Pc all on latest Nvidia drives as per last night @12am. Been reading forums looking for idea's, bios is early but from my reading is stable for SLI config, Is it worth me trying the later bios if I can get back into windows, or would anyone suggest me changing any of my memory / cpu settings? Thanks for any replies, always worth asking people in the know!!!
