Default SLi running or not ??

I have 2 7600GT's running together. If in the dislpay properties i click enable for running SLi, pcpitstop says REG FLAG (serious problem) and it tests horribly low compared to similar systems.

However if I un-check that Enable SLi mode and run those tests again, it passes with flying colors, saying i'm almost the fastest out of similar systems?

either way they look good so i cant tell.
but if tests show its better to have them unchecked... then??
i mean they are physically hooked together (SLi)
so maybe it sees it as one card and if i choose enable it looks for something else ?????????

How could this be ?

updated sig soon

beats me, 3dmark it when its checked, and then when its unchecked, that will tell you the truth right there.

So the mystery is no more. And what seemed logical is proven logical! Feel Free to compare SCORES & offer additional programs for testing ! ! ! !

These Are My Official Scores.

WITH SLi-Enabled:

3DMark '05 -- 10,325
3DMark '06 -- 5,659

WITHOUT SLi-Enabled:

3DMark '05 -- 5,697
3DMark '06 -- 3,251

SuperPi / mod1.5 XS: [1M] @ 35.625 seconds
SuperPi / SSE3: [1M] @ 33 seconds

** System brand new ! ALL stock settings ! **

You almost beat me in 3dmark05/06 but I would own framerate wise in any game. I started to go by game performance rather then synthetic benchmarks. It's like this, lets say you overclock that rig of yours and hit like 12k in 3dmark05 where as I can only hit 10,500k. You beat me by 1.5k in 3dmark05 but I probably almost double your framerates in games. Just play some games and if you can get a pretty decent overclock on your computer then you will see better framerates and loading times.

I'm a noobie when it comes to tweaking things like timings, cores, and everything else. I'm not trying to void warranties, over do anything (stock cooling, 5 80mm case fans), but I feel I could safely make it a little faster... that is if it would even be worth it.

I've had an older computer for a few years so i've never had a chance to really dive into these kind of things. But my system is killer fast.

I just got CPU-Z................

what to do
