No, not that I know of. I ran through all my BIOS options.

Sorry, I should have seen that on the OP. Should I assume that you are using a working SLI bridge?
OP, can you download GPU-Z and post a screenshot of it?

GPU-Z is an great utility to help you look at the important specs of your card(s).

Possibly. I'm not very familiar with how his motherboard BIOS is setup.

Came with my mobo and I'm rather sure it's working since it's brand new. Will edit that in.

I got a dead crossfire bridge with my crosshair IV. So it does happen.

At this point I'm leaning to suggesting grabbing a temporary hard drive and doing a clean install on the temp drive and then putting on the latest Intel chipset / USB3.0 / nVidia / etc drivers and seeing if SLI comes up.

I'm reluctant to even bring this up as it's a kludge and shouldn't need to be done

BUT

If nothing else works, use the SLI hack. The physical connections are all there; the driver just needs to be told to run your cards that way. I stress - this is a last resort.

3 questions:-

Q1) Which two slots are the two GTX460s installed in the motherboard? In the two blue slots? Or, one in blue slot and another one in white slot?

Q2) Each GTX460 needs two 6-Pin PCIE power connectors. See the 2 red circles in the pic below. For two cards, you need a total of four. Check and make sure all four are inserted.

Q3) The Corsair TX650 has only two native 6-Pin PCIE connectors. So, how do you provide the remaining two 6-Pin PCIE connectors to the cards? If you are using adapters, how?

Cool.



Before I beat this whole SLI bridge thing to death, I just want to make sure that you have tried both of these gold contacts circled in red.

Valid points, but the OP is getting sufficient power to the cards. They show up on Device Manager.
