    My Upgraded Build

    More changes! Color scheme changed back to blue, Ryzen more RAM and next year it's gonna be Threadripper and Volta (when it comes out haha). First post updated aswell.
  2. Even if Vega was better than any Geforce, I still wouldn't have recommended it after this pricing circus because I don't want these shitheads to get money from anyone.

    Weird screen issue

    No, But I fixed it shortly after writing this thread :P. I've been dealing with this for a few weeks and finally managed to find the solution today. For some reason one of the cards had a higher priority while loading the BIOS while the other one had a higher priority in the OS. I forgot to mention in the OP that if plug any of the 2 displays into the first GPU (I was using the second one), I won't get signal at all. So I found out that the first GPU only displays signal prior to the OS being loaded while the second one only displays signal after the OS is loaded. When I discovered that the other GPU doesn't display signal, the PC was on and the OS was loaded and I didn't bother to reboot it. So, as you can guess when I plugged the cable into the first card and rebooted, the BIOS screen showed up, but after that the screen went black and when I moved the cable back to the 2nd card it was displaying the OS. The fix to this was to disable SLI, move the cable to the top card and then enable it again. What I don't understand is why this started happening when I got the TV., since I didn't make any hardware changes to the system since before I got it.

    Weird screen issue

    Hey guys, I have a 1800X, A Gigabyte AX 370 Gaming 5 board and 2 GTX 1080s in SLI. I had an Acer 4k monitor that was hooked up with a Dispaly port cable. Then I won a Samsung 4K TV on a giveaway and decided to use it as a secondary monitor to play racing games on. I plugged it with a HDMI 2.0 cable. It worked but I noticed that after I plugged in the TV for the first time that I can't get into the BIOS anymore, even if I use the monitor with the DP port. Basically the PC boots, it detects the CPU and RAM, but the screen stays black instead of showing the BIOS splash screen(on both the monitor and the TV) and it only turns on when I'm at the Windows 10 lock screen (not the boot logo, but the lock screen) so by the time I get signal on the screen the OS is already loaded. I don't know what to say about this. I tired to reflash my BIOS and reset the CMOS and none of these things helped. I don't really want to take the GPUs out because they are custom watercooled with rigid tubing so it is a bit of a pain in the ass.

    Ryzen Threadripper Delidding

    Well the video and its description still showed up on Google, so I downloaded the pics from the link he had in the description, for our enjoyment
  6. Altex? That's a company in my country, Romania. They're ok.

    GTX 1080 Problem

    Well guys, I fixed it. It was a weird fix but who cares as long as it works? I updated my board to the latest beta BIOS and it works now. Now to see if I can OC my 1800x farther with this BIOS

    GTX 1080 Problem

    Not yet, because I have a custom loop so it's not that easy but I will drain it later and try it

    GTX 1080 Problem

    See the sig. Also, like I said, it works now but one of the GPUs only runs in PCIe x2, making SLI not possible,

    GTX 1080 Problem

    Update. I found out in GPU-z that one of the 1080s is running at PCIe x2 instead of x8, and nVidia only supports SLI with x8 slots. I don't know why though.

    GTX 1080 Problem

    Yeah I removed the driver with DDU and it works now, but I can't enable SLI now. The option to turn on SLI isn't in the CP anymore even though both cards are recognized. And no, it's not automatically turned on, I get the same performance I was getting before I upgraded to SLI.

    GTX 1080 Problem

    Did you read the first post? It says that I can't get into it anymore.

    GTX 1080 Problem

    Hey guys, I have 2 GTX 1080s in SLI right now, but I'm facing a problem with them. So I turned on my PC this morning and noticed that it was set to 1024x768 in Windows and that when I right click on my desktop the nVidia CP option is gone. I went into device manager and saw that my 1080s have the little yellow troubleshooting icon next to them. See this. Then I went to the nVidia site and downloaded the latest driver (I was running an older version), instelled it, restarted my PC but the problem still persists. I set the resolution back to 4K in Windows but it feels very laggy. I tried disabling and enabling them in Device Manager but it didn't do much. Any ideas on fixing this? Thanks.

    What can handle duel 1080 ti?

    BS. I run 2 1080s and all games I tried so far don't have any noticeable microstutter. The real downside of SLI/CF is that not all games can utilize it properly and some like Just Cause 3 can't use it at all. If let's say you are buying a computer for a specific game, you go SLI and the game doesn't support it, then you're screwed.

    New color scheme

    Decided to go with blue.
