How to overclock SLI cards using software
This is a question from
I recommend googling/reading around a little bit to see what other folks are achieving with your card to give you some idea where to start.
I've also taken the liberty of discounting a single unit of that card just for you. You can buy it here: NCIX US - Buy N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition - MSI GeForce GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition 832MHZ 3GB 4200MHZ GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI HDMI DP Video Card - MSI/MicroStar - Great price and fast delivery
Awesome! Thanks a ton! One quick question--do I have to do anything special in SLI mode? Do I need to disable it first and overclock each gpu?
Damn! I wish I had sent you a message earlier before I got both cards. =(
I got them from Newegg and it comes with 2 free games. Appreciate it very much! I'm bookmarking ncix.com for future hardware purchases. Thanks for all the info and links! I'll pass it along to anyone looking to upgrade their video card for sure.
I'm anticipating the 8gb Patriot single module ram. It is rather pricey right now, and I think I'm good with 12gb at the moment, but will definitely consider picking those modules up later on.
Thanks for all your help!
Another fair warning is that when you run dual cards you have a higher risk of the primary card to overheat as it is unable to get fresh air as easily as the secondary (card on the outside). To avoid your cards from overheating you'll more then likely need a more aggressive fan profile (instructions available, just follow my signature) and keeping the fan at a higher fan speed.
You can actually overclock them together, in sli, if you keep msi afterburner to mirror the settings for both the cards.
