Guest OCNewb Posted February 8, 2006 Posted February 8, 2006 I have two 6600 GTs with the SLI bridge hooked up on my DFI Infinity SLI motherboard. The first thing I discovered is that when I have two cards installed at the initial bootup only the top card, (the one closest to the CPU) shows the Infinity splash screen and post information. Even worse since I dual boot operating systems the operating system menu shows on this first monitor. (I have each monitor hooked up to a different card). After it loads windows xp 64 the first monitor gets line noise for a screen and the second monitor, attached to the 2nd card (furthest from CPU) boots up 'normally'. It therefore seems that if I want to run SLI I will not be able to see the post information (including any BIOS screen and my operating system menu) unless I have a dummy monitor hooked up to the first card just for that purpose. Is there a way to change this behavior? On a secondary note, it seems my SLI is not working correctly. I have the load balancing option checked, but I never see it activated in any games or 3dmark etc. Also my 3dmark scores are atrocious at 3467 for 3dmark05. I know I should be in the 6000s or higher with my setup. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
