I recently upgraded from 1 GTX 680 to running Asus STRIX GTX 970 in SLI.
Now whenever I boot my system up I have a hard time obtaining video. When it boots, 9/10 times I have no video. I have to keep forcing power on/off til I get a video signal. I am very confused why only 10% of the time I boot my PC up that I will get a video signal. Any suggestions? I have my PC hooked up via Display Port to a 4K Samsung 28" monitor. I never had this problem before with my single GTX 680.
When I do get a video signal I get excellent benchmark scores and 100+ FPS in games so I know the cards are working correctly.
i7 4790K
Asus Max Hero VI Mobo
Asus STRIX GTX 970 in SLI
Samsung 840 Pro SSD
1000w Corsair PSU
Corsair Liquid CPU Cooler
System is connected to a 4K monitor via display port.

Re-seat the cards a few times, sometimes dust particles build up in open slots and cause connection problems.


Try 1 card at a time see if one of the cards causes the same issue by itself. Try each card in each slot by itself...


Test with a different power supply.


Those are the things I would try.
