    Guys,

    I'm beginning to freak out a little. Just bought a GTX680 SLI setup for my rig but it's not working.

    Rig:

    - i7 3960X
    - 2x GTX680
    - Rampage 4 Extreme
    - XFX 1000w Platinium PSU


    What's the trouble? When I want to activate SLI I'm getting this error after 30 seconds and my drivers are screwed and needs reinstalling:

    Gebeurtenisnaam van probleem: APPCRASH
    Naam van de toepassing: nvcplui.exe
    Versie van toepassing: 4.4.730.0
    Tijdstempel van toepassing: 4f7c06da
    Naam van foutmodule: nvgames.dll
    Versie van foutmodule: 6.14.13.110
    Tijdstempel van foutmodule: 4f64ed1d
    Uitzonderingscode: c0000005
    Uitzonderingsmarge: 00000000000a9677
    Versie van besturingssysteem: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
    Landinstelling-id: 1043
    Aanvullende informatie 1: c1ae
    Aanvullende informatie 2: c1ae4f18096e23e1cda4b14ad816e8f6
    Aanvullende informatie 3: 1e82
    Aanvullende informatie 4: 1e8288df56a6872aadf8754f7ce56935



    List things I tried:

    - Tested the cards seperately, work fine!
    - Update bios REX4 to latest!
    - Tested 3 drivers, WHQL 301.10, Beta 301.24, Beta 301.25!
    - Before placing the cards I deinstalled the software, rebooted the system, placed 1 card, booted in safe mode, used driversweeper, rebooted again. Installed the driver, rebooted, installed the second card + SLI connector, bootup and put on SLI.
    - Used 2 way and 3 way SLI connectors, no difference!
    - Placed the cards in different slots, no difference!
    - Used CCleaner to clean errors, no difference!


    The only thing that made a difference was this:

    To explain further. NVCPlUI.exe used to be in Windows\System32 directory, it's now in C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Control Panel Client.
    If you really want to run the PhysX cp from within control panel then copy NVCPlUI.exe into System32 directory and it will run


    I did that, now my AppCrash turned into a AppHang. I can reboot the system without having to reinstall the drivers again. But, it's still not enabling SLI.

    Looks like a software problem. Anybody recognise this? I really want to put the SLI on these baby's! :(

    Thanks guys!

    Didn't you just install the 2 cards and then install the driver? I never heard of the method you are using and had many sli setups over the years.

    Indeed. You need both cards installed then install the drivers.

    You try all the 680 drivers? Both 2x 6 pins on both cards installed?

    Spend top money on a brilliant rig but run pirated Windows version, well done.

    Good luck with the problem and come back when you own the software.

    Sorry for going off topic but i was wondering if Pcie 3.0 was working on your x79 680GTX setup? or is it still broken? kind of annoyed that these cards and mobos are advertising 3.0 but it has not been working

    You need the whole Enchalada to be fully utilized.
    The CPU-IVY- Not out yet.

    And even then, Can't see making much of a difference,(Yet).

    Man, what a silly thing to do. How much is an OEM Win 7 copy going to cost you? Compare that to what you spent on your rig. Talk about saving at the wrong end...?

    Sorry but pci-e 3.0 does not need a ivy for it to work, just a compatible mobo and card, my ud7 x79 has 2x16pcie 3.0 slots , was wondering if it was working in 3.0 mode for those with 680,s

    My understanding is that 3.0 is not implemented and reverts back to
    2.0 if not.

    Show me some proof thats not the case.

    Isn't PCI-e 3.0 lanes handled by the CPU? The board and GPU also have to be compatible.
