2080 ti not working in sli

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I bought a second 2080 ti to pair with my current one(they are both founders edition), when I take one out, my system works properly, what’s going on, neither are faulty either, I tested them both, but when I put both in, no post. My motherboard supports sli as well and my psu is 1200w which should be more than enough so idk what’s going on

You forgot to mention whether or not you put in the SLI bridge.  It won't work without the bridge.

Ok sorry I was rude but the bridge is on and I’m not sure why it isn’t working

Is there anything in the BIOS that could affect the output of the dual cards?  Other than the SLI bridge, the only thing I can think of is something in the BIOS.

I’ve never changed anything in my bios (except enabling xmp) maybe asus’ website or my motherboards manual says something about sli

What's your motherboard, and have you tried both without the sli bridge?

 

Also, have you tried booting with only a single card in the second slot? Maybe the slot itself is faulty.

What PSU?  Stating the wattage doesn't tell us quality.   Also, did you check the bios to see if any lanes were disabled?   What motherboard?   Did you check them alone in each pcie slot or when you did the sole gpu test did you do it in both slots?

Motherboard is an asus zenith II extreme alpha, and the first slot can’t be faulty since my first 2080 ti was in it before I got the second one

I know both slots work because I tested the second Slot with one of my 2080 tis. Psu is an evga p2 1200w

Looks like it's a known problem. Is your bios updated? Also, a guy in that reddit thread linked this bios. Not sure if it's safe or if it's even going to work, but you can try that as a plan b.

Looks like known BIOS issue on that particular mobo.

Oops. Skipped over that part. Yeah. This has been an issue with both the Z1 and Z2.

I see some are using a beta BIOS to get around it.

Just curious, I don't care at all since it's your money to spend on whatever you want. But why SLi'ing 2080Ti?
