Thread: Question on SLI Nvidia

  1. #1
    Did some research must have two cards of the same to run SLI.

    New question would be why in the heck my card gets so hot that I cant touch it? BTW power supply is 750W dual rails

    Also my Nvidia 6800GT has a small round chip that reads 505 SVP 330 16 its round and my buddy snapped it clean off so I soldered it back on anyone know what it is and will it still work ok?

    Doh!...it's only been like that for the past 3 years or so...

    How hot is that in degrees and why do you want to touch it anyway?

    Irrelevant.

    No idea.

    What cooling is on your vid card?
    The card pictured in my Old Skewl thread is a 6800GT and it seems to run in the low 40's with the Arctic Cooler 5 on it.

    The two cards should have the same chipset but can be different clock speeds, it will just run both at the lower clocked speeds. For instance Nvidia makes 6 different geforce7900gs cards each clocked differently and different cooling to compensate for higher speeds but any two of them will sli together and run at the lower clocked bus and memory speeds.
