This points me to one or possibly two theories, firstly that STO isnt remotely compatible with SLI using the latest drivers, even tho the NVidia drivers seem to think it is

Or secondly, there's a tribble hidden somewhere in my second graphics card.....
After SLI came out, i got all hyped up and bought two SLI cards just to see what it was like. Needless to say i will never do something like that ever again... had all sorts of problems with it. Tell you the truth, i'm not surprised that you are having problems... but overheating? I mean geez.
