Cant SLI with Crossfire Board? :( - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Sure you can. I've done it with a P45 board and an M4A79XTD Evo.

Go here, get the latest version of the patch, read the guide and check the thread for driver compatibility. You can read through that thread to check for your board if you're worried.

Just about any board with the right PCIe lanes is SLI capable. NVidia disables it in software for boards that aren't certified. The patch just tells NV software that your board is an X58 (SLI certified) board, so it "unlocks" the driver. All you need is the right cards and an SLI bridge.

The one in my sig.

I am not sure if it will work on that chipset, but I would try it. It is easy to install and to take off.

The only real way to test is to either ask someone else with the same mobo and graphics cards if the sli patch worked for them or to test it yourself.
