I would think you should be able to run the SLi hack just fine however, You may need to update your mobo's bios to the most recent version. In doing so it may not give you the best overclocking performance or it may give you better overclocking performance it all depends on what was changed in the most recent bios.

What is the date of the most recent bios for your board any way and what does it say it fixes or adds?

You could always try to borrow a 460 or purchase one from a local store like Fry's Electronics for trial purposes and if it don't work out for you then you could always return it for 100% of your cost w/out any restocking fee's.

That is the one thing I disslike the most about Newegg. They have restocking fee's when you return new items unless they are defective.

I quoted myself, this ^^^ should answer your question about the 890FX. As far as the gtx 460, the thread title was updated to notify all those anxious gtx 460 owners about sli on a non-sli certified board. Basically, it should work

ok, got it to work after changing my bios to display to the second card first and just hooking my monitors to that card. I booted up with the hack on and already installed, and when i logged in, system already saw both cards and asked to enable sli mode

so I did, and ran some benchs



So confirmed 470 SLI on a GA-EP45-UD3P with the 0.9b sli hack

awesome double check w/ Kombustor or Furmark multi gpu and confirm w/ afterburner that both cards are loading in 90%+. I did the beta hack 0.9 and both cards were detected and sli was offered, but only one card was used. just to make sure.

I know I know I saw your post.
The thing is like I was wondering if a BIOSTAR boards are even supported because on the page last time I checked it was all ASUSs and GIGABYTEs.
But I'll take your word for it.

I have Asus M4A89GTD PRO AMD 890GX mobo, and I'd like to buy a pair of EVGA 460 SC 768MB for SLI, it has pretty impressive scaling according to this review: http://www.guru3d.com/article/geforc...-sli-review/11

The question is obvious, will it work with slipatch on this mobo? Cheers.
