hv43082 Posted October 11, 2010 Share Posted October 11, 2010 I had this PSU since late 2008. I recently upgrade my my GPU to two 480 GTX. The PSU was working fine prior to this upgrade. Now it is having problem handling two 480 GTX in SLI. Each card is working perfectly by itself (Furmark stable) but whenever they are used in SLI mode (Furmark multi GPU, games) the system would crash to black screen right away and requires hard reset to get back to window. Both official and beta drivers provide the same result. My PSU is Corsair 1000W. One card is connected to 12V1 and the other to 12V2. I have tried to connect both card to 12V2 but the system would freeze as soon as SLI is selected in NVIDIA control panel. When I manually lower the stock voltage of the GPU from 1.025V to say 1.000V, the system would run Furmark for 10-15 minutes before the same problem happened. My system is listed in my signature/system spec. Is my PSU not enough? I have successfully use 460 GTX SLI without any problem. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
