    try installing a card in the top pcie slot first then add in the other,could be a detection issue as its not letting you enable sli

    Pretty much, then most people find the solutions for fixes and they use them.

    yeah true,it could verywell be msi whos at fault but still motherboard manufacturers should still aim to fix it instead of blaming

    that would explain why it didn't work on the asrock though if it was a gpu bios issue

    I assume that you tried 4 different SLI bridges.
    If you installed the Nvidia drivers after the first card was installed, I'm pretty sure that you need to repeat installing the Nvidia drivers after you install the second video card. With both video cards installed, you should be able to delete the Nvidia drivers, run driver sweeper and then perform a single install of the Nvidia drivers.

    From your GPU-z screen-shots, it looks like you had something installed in the PCIEX4 slot at that time.

    Have you tried posting in the MSI user to user forum?

    They have some very tech savvy posters.

    Yea, my first post says I've done that. There is nothing in PCIEX4 slot that's why I'm confused about the bus speeds. The first card says it's in the PCIEX8 slot but that isn't true at all. I have not tried the MSI user forum, I will give it a shot.

    With 2 video cards installed, each should run with x8 bandwidth with gen 3.0 bandwidth.
    If any card is installed in the PCIEX4 slot, then the bandwidth would be x8, x4, x4 according to the specs.

    If your first GPU-z screen-shot was with a single video card in the PCIEX16, I would expect to see @x16 3.0.
    With two cards installed, I would expect each screen-shot to say @x8 3.0, not @x4 1.1 for the PCIEX8 slot!!

    You're currently using the latest Mar 7, 2013 version of GPU-z. I wonder if it could be a bug in GPU-z

    In the ASRock forum, there have been many threads where there were major video card problems, such as the gen 3.0 video card wasn't even recognized when it was installed in the pcie x16 slot. In some cases it was the card's fault, but in some cases the problem was fixed with a special motherboard bios update. Is there any way you can borrow a different brand of gen 3.0 video card(s) to test with? This should eliminate the finger pointing. One way you might get better support from MSI and Gigabyte is to post on their FaceBook sites about the problem. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!!

    Minor point, in post #1 your said "-Tried 4 different SLI cables". I've always seen the term "bridges" used.

    Yea with the ASRock I updated the bios first before trying it so if the issue was fixed their current bios on their web site I shouldn't of seen a problem. MSI wants me to send them the cards so they can test them. Thanks for the input! I should of screenshotted the ASRock board and GPU-z to get a comparison.
