Hello guys..
so let me explain the problem.
after playing some arma 3 on the dev brench with my SLI enabled x2 680s / 1342/6800 ( but atm for now they're at the original switch so stock speeds )
after 15 - 20 Minutes of gameplay my game freezes for a second or just pops up ArmA 3 has stopped working... so i tried it with ArmA 2 OA and the same thing happend.. ;thats weird , before that didnt happen at all. now i tried hawken wich is in beta atm.. and after the same minutes i get a BSOD ill post them bellow.. 
this doesnt happen when SLI is disabled.
i tried other forums even the Hawken support / forum couldnt not help me out.
things i tried :

older drivers
memtest86+
Anti virus found 8 virusses they got cleaned up but with no help ofcourse.
All drivers seem to be up-to-date
even the windows updates are up-to-date
tested each GPU in slot 1 and theyre working correctly.

system specs : i5 3570K 4.5hz

Asrock Extreme 4
x2 msi lightning 680's 1343/6800 when switch is pulled
8GB Kingston HyperX 1600
SSD Crucial M4
1TB WD
27 Inch Samsung SyncMaster .
 

 

Most of the threads i made where stuck at the qeustion * test the PSU * 
but i dont have another one seems... 
and im not sure if it is the PSU itself...
should i just test the psu on a heavy Application like a benchmark?



heres some info..

Well, the first BSOD message is a driver issue. The second BSOD could be mutiple things. Heres a couple things you can try:

 

- Reseat the RAM

- If you are OCing the RAM and or CPU, set it to default

- Make sure all fans are running

- Check all temperatures to check for overheating

- When booting use "last known good config"

- Reset all bios settings, which should default to using one card. If it boots right, restart and switch ONLY the SLI mode and see how the game runs

- And yes you would either need a PSU tester or another PSU to see if its the PSU.

 

Cant think of too much more.

Well you said you already made sure that you have the latest updates for your video cards... Umm, have you installed any programs right before it first started happening?
