Greetings all. I decided to install a second BFG 285 OCX on my Asus WS revolution board this evening. The board does 3-way SLI @ 16x. I have a Core i7 940 running at 3.5 ghz.

Everything starts up...I run some tests in my favorite games and, no improvement at all. Exact same bench results as before. Dawn of War, Crysis, etc. GPU-Z indicates that both cards are enabled, so is there something else I am missing?

thanks

Also...I am using the 3-way SLI bridge that came with the board, though the second slot is empty.

Did that. Swapped the cards between slots also. This board has 6 slots and, for two-card SLI, has you insert one card in Slot 1 and one card in Slot 5.

Yes. Everything seems to indicate that both cards are being recognized by the system, but there is literally no performance change.

Thanks for the reply...this is actually what I wound up doing and it verified that things are working as intended. Took my GPU score from 12931 to 23542. Thanks for the help and advice guys.
