It isn't possible on any motherboard. The 460's just aren't allowed to do it. Only 2-way sli is supported.

I think it's Nvidia's driver limitation so that you must buy a higher end card.

drivers.

Also, only 1 SLI connector already indicates that.

GTX 460 can only be 2-way SLI'd, its the same with the GTX 560 Ti.

Nvidia doesn't want tri-sli mid-level cards to vulture purchases of their top cards. So they limited the 460's to a single SLI dongle and thus max of two way SLI.
