The Gigabyte 790X boards are pretty lenient and awesome with the SLI patch thumb.gif

Indeed.

/sigh... if SLI was showing up as an option in the control panel I would... and then I wouldn't be having a problem.

Using version 1.0...

also try a different version of the drivers
post #624 of 1985
Just confirming that the latest SLI patch(1.0) works with the latest nvidia drivers (266.58 WHQL) on the Asus Crosshair IV Extreme running 570's.

In case anybody else out there was wondering.

Hey guys,

I confidently purchased and received my second GTX 460 today after reading this thread and other SLI hack success stories for weeks.

But I'm totally stumped on how to properly connect the 2nd card with the 4 pin molex power adapter.

Please bear with me because this is my first attempt to installing and setting up SLI, which is most likely the reason why I'm failing so miserably.

My motherboard manual told me that the primary card goes on the 2nd slot and the slave or the secondary card if you will, goes on the top BUT this is for xfire and I know it's the complete opposite for SLI but does it really matter? Currently, I have my primary card on the bottom slot and the secondary on top.

Also, I've realized that I only have 2 8-pin inputs on my 700W modXstream-PRO PSU (SLI ready) and my 2x PNY GTX 460's requires 2 6-pin PCI-E connectors to power up.

My PSU only has 2 8-pin inputs for the PCI-E connectors so I am limited right now. I'm assuming the 4 pin molex are used for an alternative way to power up your card, so how do you go about connecting the secondary card using the 4 pin molex adapter?

Atm, I have the second card connected to both molex adapters (from both cards) which are connected to a 6 pin connector that's plugged into the 6-pin input on the PSU. Chances are, I did it wrong because after patching the SLI hack and installing the driver, there are no signs of success what so ever.

So I beg of you please, shed some light for me on this and explain step by step on how to connect both my GPU to the PSU for SLI configuration.


Here are my specs btw:

OS: Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2 GHz
Mobo: BIOSTAR TA790GXE 128M AM2+/AM3 AMD 790GX
GPU: 2x PNY GTX 460 (factory OC)
PSU: 700W ModXStream-PRO (SLI ready)
Ram: 8 GB (Don't know the name since it was salvaged from my old PC)

Just looked at your PSU Specs



Looks like it has 2 12v rails.... which probably means that each one of those PCI-E (red) modules is on either rail

the easiest and probably the best solution would be 2 of these

http://cgi.ebay.com/PCI-Express-6-pi...item5d2d16a8c7

Also look do both cards appear in Device manager...

also are you using a SLI Bridge

Okay, after posting, I've tried switching the cables around, applied the 4 pin molex on my primary and the PCI-E connectors to my secondary (the one on top). With some what success, both of my cards are receiving power as the fan on both of them are spinning however my Device Manager is only picking up on one of them, which is the bottom card (primary).

Yes, I'm using a SLI bridge and I tried plugging it in up and down.
Also, I am using the latest driver which is 266.58 I believe.

I just used this patch on my Asus p5q pro with two gtx 260 216sp and it works awesome!!!!!!!!!!!

ahhhhhhhh i'm so happy.
post #629 of 1985
Hi guys, do you think I could enable the patch for my GA-H55M-USB3 mobo, I know you always get questions like this, but my major concern is:

It´s a h55, not p55.
I think it´s Crossfire certified, but not SLI.
It has 2 pci express expansion slots, first is 16x and the 2nd is 1x.


Thank you very much for your help.

Just did it with 2x GTX 470s and a EP45-UD3P. Used Sli Hack v1.0 Final and Nvidia 266.35 Beta and 266.58WHQL drivers(non quadro)
