There have been several others who have gotten SLI to work on this board, though it's been a while since the subject has been brought up.

eclipse had it working. Required the specific driver it was hacked on, unless you slipped the hack into a driver yourself. Its probably been patched for eons, I think the sli hack driver is 197.xx??? LOL Decent driver then, but I wouldnt expect to use any gf4 series or newer...

I recently purchased Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233144

I'm curious to know if I will have any issues with this RAM, based specifically on what you can see from stats and knowledge of this motherboard.. I was unable to find this information anywhere else.

Thank you,
Nick

The sli hack has to be used with certain drivers. I'm not on my comp so I dont have the bookmark at the moment but later tonight I will get which drivers you need and post them up. The hack does work and works great! it's just that they have to patch the hack for newer drivers and that can take some time.

I doubt that you will have problems but that ram is not really very good for 1600 Ram the timings are a bit high.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145285 are much better and cheaper

Thank you for your timely response, always something I guess. I should be able to return it, this is precisely why I didn't open the package. I should also know better than to impulse buy lol

I was hoping to actually get a bit more than 4GB, but I guess I probably won't be able to in that budget range, At least not something speedy?

The reason I'm upgrading is I keep randomly receiving hypersync flood errors with my mushkin ram, and I only have 4GB.

I had an Asus motherboard before this that had similar issues; and I changed to this motherboard, so I'm presuming the issue is the RAM.

Hyper-transport errors are actually caused by instability.

Actually the Vengence RAM wasn't bad, it was CAS9 @ 1.5v, which is standard for most RAM, even the one you linked eclipse.

SLI Patch 0.9B for ALL operation systems, version 0.9 beta
In this patch latest fix of issues with Forceware 258 and 260.xx branch drivers applied. Now working ok.
OBSOLETE patch versions, education purposes only (use only latest 0.9b version)
So I would use driver 258 personally.

SLIpatch 0.9b

Thing is it might not do the 7-8-7 @ 1.65 these will and are cheaper

I did not notice that it was 8GB's he was looking at though.... Not sure why people need 8GB's of ram but to each his own.

If he wants 8GB I would be looking at these they are more money but they are also 7-8-7 which would be a world of difference.

That should be correct. The last time I ran the SLI hack I was on 198.XX drivers. It did work perfectly but it has been a while sense I had to do it. But I do know that there are some others that are running the SLI hack with this board and some of the newer drivers.
