Just got Sli gtx 670 need advice?

#1 Edited by awax187187 (203 posts) -

I just installed my first GTX 670 sli never done it before I just wanted some pointers or tips about it because I have never done it before, I tried a few games some have like flickering in the sky and smoke that just normal with some games, also what's a good game to try it out im guessing Metro Last Light?

One more thing the micro stuttering would be more noticeable in games that are less compatible or same all round?

Thanks.

Make sure the SLI connector is firmly on. I've never really noticed micro stutter, you wont get more in less compatible games just lower frame rates as they wont use the 2nd gpu so much.

Flickering could be a number of things...were they 2nd hand or new. Metro is a good one also BF4, Crysis 3 any major title really.

The second card I bought is 2nd hand I played few games with it before I used sli to make sure it works but soon as I sli couple of games the smoke and some other little things in the game I can notice a change of colour

@awax187187: Check both are clocking the same and check the temps on both when under load
