GTX 480 SLI + Dual monitors -
| posts: 7 | Location: Iceland
I just recently added a second GTX480 to my setup. Right now I have them both in and one monitor connected to each card.
In SLI mode the 1st GPU will downclock to normal 2D settings, the 2nd GPU will downclock to about half the stock clocks.
The thing is if I disable SLI then they both downclock to normal 2D settings. So to minimize heat I would always have to be disabling SLI and then re-enabling it when playing games.
I read online that the card that has the second monitor connected will always be clocked higher and that's true, if I connect the second monitor to GPU1 (so it has both monitors) then it clocks half way down but the 2nd GPU clocks all the way to normal 2D settings.
Is there any way to force them both down to 2D settings when in SLI mode?
