My System Specs

Default Interesting 680 situation

Got a couple of 680's in SLI and I decided to slap on the 3 way SLI bridge since the orange, floppy, 2 way bridge Asus includes just sticks out like a sore thumb but when I started up the machine again with the 2 way bridge the Nvidia control panel said "Connect the 2 SLI ready Graphics Cards with an SLI connector", OK?

So I try a different 2 way bridge same result. Put the 3 way back on, disabled SLI, shut the machine back down and put the 2 way back on, same result.

Even tried disabling SLI, removing bridge, totally removing the graphics driver, rebooting the machine after uninstall, then redownloading and reinstalling the latest driver and still these 680's seem hell bent in only doing SLI with the 3 way bridge.

This doesn't effect my frame rate or use of the cards in any way but I find it interesting that these 2 cards are being picky about which SLI bridge is connecting them together
