Beginning with the 258 drivers, NVIDIA introduced a new protection mechanism to prevent us from running SLI.
Your machine will freeze randomly if you don't patch your driver by using either anatolymik's prepatched 258.96 or choose your own driver version and patch it yourself.
what i found from the forums

How good does this patch work?
it seemed kinda suspect to me so i simply got a sli mobo instead
post #413 of 1985
its usually w/ newer drivers and cards where some may run into issues. it should work w/ gtx 275 sli and if need to, you can roll back a couple of drivers if you experience any instability.

I'll be getting my replacement Redlines for my GD70 some time this afternoon and if all goes well with getting the ram speeds at the rated timings will determine how soon I'll be testing out this SLi hack.

Hey guys, owner of a Phenom II X4 955 and a 460. Went with it because it was the budget thing at the time.

How many bugs with this are there actually?
Considering buying a 2nd to use the SLI hack with. Don't want to buy one though just for it not to work.

Motherboard is BIOSTAR TA890FXE.

This is assuming the GTX 460 gains support soon.

Thread Starter 
It is now officially unofficially supported in patch 0.9b. It generally works fine, see this thread: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showth...60844&page=170

Basically nvidia tried to circumvent the hack with the latest set of drivers and they've already fixed the patch within a couple months of the 460 releases. Hopefully this will continue working for a while, nvidia doesn't like that we're able to do this, and to do it so well.

My desktop rig is running computation chemistry stuff 24/7 so I have no use for another 460 right now, maybe later this year

Confirmed.
Windows 7 32bit Enterprise (fresh install), 0.9b patch and latest Forceware.
Windows 7 64 bit, 0.9b patch and latest Forceware. (BC2 BSOD owing to 64 bit).

well I just installed the 9b and the latest beta 160.89 drivers on my MSI 790FX-GD70 and 2x MSI Cyclone 460 GTX cards and was able to get a decent Vantage score from what I'm told. http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dmv=2610688

I'm about to run Crysis now with SLi enabled to see how it runs... N2 Crosses fingers

Keep updated on this please. I was worried about the GD70 since I haven't seen too many people do it.

If it works I will be following in December with the hack.

GOOD LUCK!

EDIT: Was there anything special outside normal instructions you had to do to make it work?

No it was pretty basic


I installed the 9b patch

rebooted the system

installed the 160.89 beta gpu drivers

rebooted the system

ran nvidia control panel and enabled SLi

That's all I did and it was pretty easy
about to run crysis now
