the hack is mainly to trick the nvidia driver its an x58 chipset, the NB continues to function as normal. Normal usage I did not see any difference going from an ati 4870x2 + 4870 trifire to two gtx 470. But gaming performance is on a new level. All my games gained significant performance and the driver stability is phenomenal compared to the ati, which honestly is quite a bit buggy, I had to roll back several times . I really dont have any screens shots to compare the performance from the ati to the fermis as when my build finally was getting together the 4870x took a dive and crashed w/ every game. But the experience is much better, for example Crysis I would have to leave it at high and either 0 or 2x aa. with the fermis they love aa, I can crank it up to 4-8x aa and the fermis keep going. I can even play very high, but it struggles on the last level, which it does for many highend cards, just lower to high and lower aa to 2x and I get through it so much smoother, where as my ati I would need to crank it down to med and no aa.

Any update on this? Does it work with the 285 now?

Going by the sheet of people who have successfully done this, it seems the 285 can be used.

Where have you seen this?

I've only been seeing that the 258 drivers work for 10-15mins then it flakes out. This is not dissimilar to what I've experienced with the 258 drivers.

Oh 258 drivers?

He said 285 so I assumed he meant the GTX 285's

After you hack SLI can you update to the latest drivers?

^up to 257.21 only.

This is really looking bleak, I know this is a free effort and all, but not being able to take advantage of new drivers sucks. It might be time to move on and get an sli certified board or go back to the red team, which I know drivers are not the greatest thing
