    Default Z87 Extreme 6 not booting in SLI

    Correction --- NOT displaying. It will boot fine, sorry.

    I have 2 Zotac gtx980's that will boot individually in slots 2 and 3 but not when installed together.
    I can hear windows just get no image.
    I have a Seasonic 1200SS PS that is new so power is not an issue. Both cards light up fine.
    I swapped the SLI bridge connections still nothing.

    Any thoughts?

    Is this your first SLI setup? What OS are you using?

    After installing both cards, did you clear the CMOS/BIOS before starting the PC again? That should be standard procedure whenever changing hardware.

    Which card is the cable to the monitor connected to, and what interface are you using?

    Is this being done on a new Windows installation, or existing one? Either way, was the Zotac/Nvidia graphics driver installed before you added the second card? You may have better luck by uninstalling your current video driver, then restart the PC so the default Windows video driver loads. Then shutdown and add the second card, and install the video driver.

    Are you aware that SLI must be configured in the Nvidia Control Panel?

    It's my first since the very first one ever made.
    I did a bios reset tonight ... nada.
    The monitor is connected to the top card via DVI.
    Fresh Win 7 Pro 64 install Sunday with latest drivers.

    I don't even see my bios login screens but I do hear Windows start to desktop.

    I'll try the uninstall and see what happens, THANKS for the reply!!!!

    Dear Ssiperko,

    Zotac GTX980 have two GTX980 graphic card product, we test on ZOTAC GEFORCE GTX980(ZT-90205-10P)x2 to SLI, system can enable SLI normally.
    Please refer attached picture.

    We provide following suggestion for verify SLI with GTX980:
    (1)Please connect VGA output cable on the other GTX980 for try.
    (2)Please change another SLI bridge for verify.
    (3)Please refer below picture2 to check two of GTX980 is the same VBIOS version.
    (4)Change other PCIE slot for try.
    (5)Check debug code on Z87 Extreme6 for verify.
    (6)Check power supply can serve your system.
