Problem Enabling SLI

  1. Built my own pc and have had a number of problems getting the drivers and hardware to work. After a month of problems ended up having to turn up the voltage manually for my ram to get it working. Works fine with ONE card in.

    I can use my computer with one card (or two cards non-sli enabled).
    BUT if I attempt to enable the sli it hangs during the black screen when it is suppose to pop back and ask 'do you want to keep these settings.' At this point can only reboot by turning off and back on.

    Computer can stay in SLI Enabled mode after coming back on but will crash within one minute, or first time graphic intensive program is used.

    Using Ntune and cannot get it too fine tune when sli enabled...crashes within seconds at times.

    New build is all compatible as far as i understand and computer can work great with just one card in. However, I specifically built this to get the dual graphics card set up so really want to get it working.

    Why can I not enable SLI without it crashing? My BIOS has no sli settings. Works fine with one card...what is the deal.
