Hi,

OK I've just bought a second 7800GTX to run in SLI, plugged it all into my Asus A8N-SLI but I get what seems like a high pitched warning squeal, as far as I can tell both cards have power so what am I doing wrong ;)

Cheers

OK I've given the EZ_PLUG some juice and the red LED has gone out on the MOBO and I've enabled SLI in drivers but I'm still getting a high pitched warning squeal (can't tell if its from the MOBO or the card).

What version of the A8N do you have? If not the premium, have you changed the little paddle card to dual cards.

Your psu shouyld be fine, i ran sli 7800Gt cards with rest of spec in my sig on an enermax 485w

The molex you put in the ez-plug, is it shared with anything as i shouldnt be really.

VGA lead is connected to the card in the blue pci-e slot?Im just going through the manual and checking but so far it seems you have everything setup right.
