    I believe SLI is VERY picky about which 2 cards you use together, as in, they need to have the same manufacturer in some cases, could be seeing that.

    Is SLI reported correctly in NVIDIA Control Panel?

    Wouldn't pay too much attention to Device Manager if it is.

    GTX+ should be in the primary PCI-E port or it will not work as far as I know. According to EVGA those two should work in SLI. What motherboard you have exactly?
