Alright so I've had one 760 for goin on two years with the goal of getting a 780ti. That didn't happen because I'm broke the majority of the time...so recently I got offered a good deal on another 760. I bought it with the plan to SLI them. And this is where my trouble begins.

So I initially tried to install by just sliding the new card in and placong the bridge on both sides. Keeping my little 1gb 520 in that I use to run a side monitor. This did not work, the enable SLI option was no available. So I assumed if I clean installed my drivers this would solve the issue. It did not.

I removed the 520 and my wireless card leaving only the two 760s in. Same thing. Clean installed again, no good.

Tried shuffling PCIE slots. Also no good after every possible combination.

I tried both bridge connections on the cards and also visually inspected the connectors for damage. Both were fine.

My system recognizes the cards, they both function fine independently but will not SLI.

What am I doing wrong!? Help!
