  1. heyguys what's up..like u can see i'm new on this forum so i'm hoping that u will help me cuz i'm pretty desparate..i bought new rig few days ago and nuttin is working like it should...random BSOD's,freezes,now SLI flickering..dunno what to do..my spec r:

    EVGA 680i SLI
    Q6600 Kentsfield
    4 x 1GB Kingmax 800mhz
    OCZ Xtreme 850W
    2 x 8800GTX EVGA
    2 x 250GB WD sata2 16mb
    etc...
    i manage to "solve" problem with BSOD's and freezes,it works ok with only 2GB of memory...BUT when i enable SLI i got screen flicker,see my windows logon when i boot and then flickering again..SLI bridge off and everything works fine

    SLI features For the GPU are controlled by the bios... reset the CMOS and make sure the latest motherboard drivers are installed

    I told you to update motherboard drivers and the BIOS may need updating, not to reload the Operating System...

    Where are you located in this World?
