Actually I SLi'd two GTX 460's with a Crosshair IV just fine. Perhaps it's a motherboard difference in this case. *Actually sounds like he had a bad card or had some sort of configuration that wouldn't work with the hack.

I just read that somewhere else too, basically its rebranded!

i think i will go with the discontinued ASUS M4N75TD. Other than the lower DDR3 clock speeds i don't see why its better than the ASUS M4N98TD, refute?

Interesting, maybe cheap MOBOs can't do it though ?
because if thats the case i would rather keep my current mobo!

Seems like a good choice. It's basically the same.
The reason why I bought this board and not the M4N75TD was because of the x16 on the two GPU's. Untill I realized how much difference it actually did, which was hardly anything.

The main reason I went with the m4n98 over the m4n75td is the fact that its true sli and Not discontinued. Yea p4p3r yea I think I got me one of them GOOD overclocking chips.

the msi ones are no good at all. Just check newegg replies. That asus one is almost as good as 790fx/890fx one.

Wow so much bad information in here.....

Just use the SLI hack on your current board. Your board is a solid board, and will take your components to the sky and back. No reason to buy another board for SLI, when the SLI hack is readily available.

paulharrison (or whatever it was) must've tried 460's using the SLI hack before they patched it for the 460's. There WAS a problem with 460's + the SLI hack, there isn't that problem anymore with the latest hack.

Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING that was suggested requires anything to do with the BIOS. The SLI hack is a simple software modification to trick the Nvidia drivers into thinking you've got an Nvidia branded motherboard. It's only a driver hack. It has NOTHING to do with the BIOS, and it really could care less what motherboard you have. The only requirement is that you have 2x PCIe slots, so you can physically SLI.

So seriously, consider just keeping your current board, and doing the SLI hack. No reason to blow money when you've got one of the better boards out there.
