SLI is not compatible with all games and will not give optimal performance unless the optimal settings are done. This is keeping in mind that the hardware itself should be fine.

 

1) Which game is giving you problem?

2) What is the problem?

 

A test can only be suggested once the problem is known. Thank you.

Mainly CS:GO giving the problem.When i try to play with sli enabled game randomly freezes.I dont really know if there are any other games that gives me problem but i remember that i was having different kind of issue while im playing far cry 3 with sli.Few days back i contacted nvidia support.They told me to test my gpus by disableing the gpus on the device manager one by one.I did it and cs:go didnt even open with second gpu and i had 10 fps on lol.But i am not sure that is the way to test to gpus.

That is definitely not the way to test the Ultrabay GPU.

CS:GO does not utilize SLI well, Actually its more of a CPU intensive game than GPU.

 

The game can freeze for various reasons, there is no reason to suspect that the GPU is behind it.

 

1) You can try running CS:GO without utilizing the Ultrabay and see if the freezing goes away. Just change the settings in NVIDIA 3D settings to run on single GPU or take out the Ultrabay before playing.

2) Install CPU HWMonitor before playing games and run it while playing. Note down the temps mid-game, see if they are too high.

3) Dowanload some of the QUICK tests from Lenovo and run them on your system to see if they all PASS.

4) Open CMD with Administrative rights and type scannow /f , let it complete and see if any error are returned.

 

Post back if you have doubts and with what you find.

Thanks.
