I have a new Haswell build with 2 GTX 570's, both crunch fine. I replaced one 570 with a GTX 780 and the other 570 now get's a (NOT USED). Tryed the 780
in another computer with a GTX 570 and GTX580. replaced the 580 with the 780
and the 570 stops crunching (NOT USED) This happens with seti or einstein.
Tryed three different nvidia drivers, use all gpu's in cc_config.
what am i missing/forgetting

BOINC uses only the 'fastest' GPU by default.

place this cc_config.xml file in your BOINC data directory:

<cc_config>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
</options>
</cc_config>

and, by-the-by, the 331.40 beta driver seems to include the 36 hour TDR fix some have reported with the 780 and previous drivers. Seems to be stable, and also seems to be ~=> faster with F@H WUs.
