I plan on running two EVGA GeForce 9600 GT's in SLI, my question is this.
My original EVGA GeForce 9600 GT is a stock card running at 650MHz GPU Clock speed and 1.8GHz Memory Clock speed. The second 9600 GT will be the SSC version running at 740MHz GPU Clock speed and 1.95GHz Memory Clock speed. I realize that the SSC version will run at 650MHz GPU Clock speed and 1.8GHz Memory Clock speed with having them in SLI. I want to know is which PCIE 16x lane do I put which card into?
I could be wrong but I seem to recall reading that you can't SLI same model cards with different factory clocks, although maybe if you could OC the 650 up to the 740 maybe it would work. I don't have time right now but I would check with the evga forum guru's on this.
Yeah - you can SLI the cards - it will just auto revert to the lower of the two clocks for core, shaders and vram. Once you've SLI'd 'em though, you could always just Rivatuner her on up. Rivatuner will show both cards - but whatever adjustments you make to the card in slot 1 will also be made to the other card automatically. So make sure you only use clocks that the weaker of the two cards can handle (if one is, in fact, weaker than the other).
