GTX 690 4 gig Card Running In Sli Perfectly

Recommended Posts

 

I thought about changing my graphics card because up till  2 months ago there was no Sli profile for PD3,  I have 1 single gtx 690 4 gig card, its a Sli card so i was pretty certain i was only utilizing 2 gig of card,  so i download the Evega Perecion X 16 tool  http://www.evga.com/precision/  amazing tool, it runs on top of PD3 and from the pic you can see that that its running in Sli perfectly,  great tool it monitors heat temps as well,   i'm dizzy with excitement,  happy with my card again  :rolleyes:

 

The Evga tool is on the left.    Nvidea Inspector on the right,  both monitoring tools pretty match up together

But try rightclick mouse any where not over buttons or hit the menubar. SLI gets out of sync.

For the love of P3D, can you not just be happy for me  :lol:  :lol:   

 

Yes you are correct,  when jumping from window to full screen or right clicking over the mouse it does jump out alright.

 

Roll on today and i installed the new drivers  http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/87783/en-us  The performance seems to be better with less jumping out of sync,  mind you i haven't tested the new drivers and Sli mode with airport lights and so on but so far i'm happy and my FPS are very stable, best they have ever been  

 

Same scenario with a dabble of Rex

Lol, im all about the settings these days  :lol:     While i have you there Vic it would be rude of me not to ask a Question  :spiteful:

 

I have been paying close attention to my GPU temps and have noticed that they can go as high 88c,  yes yes i know this is to high,  heres the thing though,  i have noticed in my Command center that all my fans are set to Auto and under stress it seems the Auto function is not kicking into the PCI fan and its not running at all.  Should i manually set my fans up before flying, lets say 60% Or is this overkill?   OR Just maybe try and get the Auto thing to work and let the Auto work the fans

Good one Vic

 

Congrats Elaine- forget auto and crank fans full before entering sim

 

When not in sim turn them down - use precision tool to do it - I have spoken lol

 

I run nzxt water cooler on titan x never goes past 32 degrees but do have central air in home - I also crank that fan on full while in sim with asus fan smart software

Use MSI Afterburner to set up your own fan speed versus temperature curve. With those kinds of temperatures, the GPUs are probably downclocking anyway. generally speaking, the default fan curve is set up to save electricity, not to benefit performance.

Elaine - what Jay said. I use EVGA PrecisionX but MSI Afterburner is equally as good.

search for NVIDIA FAN CONTROL - follow that and you can easily set up your profile. Altho initially written for FSX it applies to P3D also.

 

Have fun geek!

 

:)

Vic

 

EDIT: Don't forget that the fans in the video cards can get clogged also. During your routine maintenance it is a good idea to blow them out with canned air - helps with the cooling.

Thank you Rich, Vic and Jay.  *Excuse me for a sec*   AAAAARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG   *thank you*

 

I'm using the Precision tool myself and from this i can operate only my GPU fans, is this right?     I have the AlienWare software installed on my computer which gives me the "Command Center", in here i can manually operate my PCI fan perfectly, but here is the thing though,  i cant operate my System fans manually because that's locked into Auto.   I installed the MSI Afterburner, which gives me an option to manipulate 1 fan, but which fan is that one?  PCI fan or System fan lol    Id rather get rid of the Command Center and just have one piece of software operating the fans. 

 

So,  i know i need the Precision tool for the Graphics card But will the MSI Afterburner operate all the fans in Sync together,   you know, just so my ears stop bleeding with pressure  :rolleyes:

 

Lol to Vic,  geek  :lol:

Precision tool has an option to turn up gpu fans speeds 

 

"System fans manually because that's locked into Auto"

 

Check your bios you can usually change this behavior there but if they are spooling up then you should be fine - otherwise in system software to control them would be nice keeping in mind bios needs to agree if that makes any sense your getting it Geek Girl :)

 

After burner and precision tool only control gpu not system fans

Leaving the system fans on Auto should be fine, They usually don't vary as much as the GPU when under load. I'd just set up the profile for the GPU and leave CPU and system fans on auto. If you are monitoring your temps and notice that system or cpu starts creeping too high - just turn them full on.

 

I use a Corsair H100 to cool my CPU and I have 5 or 6 other fans in the case, all controlled by the BIOS. I use EVGA PrecisionX(MSI) to control the GPU. I run my 3770 at 4.8 so it gets pushed pretty good. I find, even at full bore with both 970's the only time I even notice the noise is at startup. After that, the engine noise of the a/c drowns it out. :)

Just tick the box in general settings that says "synchronize settings" and that will set them both up

 

In fan control you could set the fans to auto run at 100% once over 60c that way they will only kick in when your simming and not just surfing.

 

As mentioned above adding more fans to your case will make a big difference as well.

Elaine - what Jay said. I use EVGA PrecisionX but MSI Afterburner is equally as good.

 

They are actually two versions of the same program originally written by the same author. The most recent version of EVGA Precision has diverged a bit due to patent issues, which kept it off the market for a few months.

Leaving the system fans on Auto should be fine,

 

 

I have to disagree with you on this. Leaving the fans on auto allows the GPU to heat up far more quickly and at that point, even the maximum fan speed doesn't do much except keep the card at a constantly high temperature. Once each step in the performance curve vs. temperature is reached, the GPU starts declocking a step at a time. it's worth tinkering with the fan curve just to see where the sweet spot is. But if one doesn't fool with the fan curve, it doesn't make a tremendous amount of difference in frame rates.

Guys, does clicking the menu leave SLI out of sync permanently or is it re-fixable ?

I can buy a second Titan X but before I am going to spent that amount of money I need your advice..

 

Because I have a real size home cockpit I need to start up in windowed mode, start the CP Flight software by the menu and in the near future perhaps also other cockpit addon software by the menu.

After having started up these addons I then go into "fullscreen" mode so the view covers all 3 cockpit screens.

 

Can this be done and have SLI working correctly ?
