HOWTO: SLI on a non-SLI Motherboard (GTX5xx compatible 1.0 final released!) - Page 74

post #731 of 1985
Test tube you are no longer new here

You should not have any problems w/this as long as you follow the instructions. Also make sure your bios is up to date and you have all your mobo's native drivers installed. i.e. chipset drivers, nic drivers, etc etc then install the GPU dirvers followed by installing the patch. I'm not using the 1.0 final, I'm using the v9.b and it works great for me w/the 260.99 Drivers

Nevermind, got it working...!

All I did was turn on the "optimized defaults" in the BIOS settings... The SLI option disappeared on the boot list, then I reinstalled it and it appeared again. This time when I selected it, it worked! I will put this on the front page, I didn't think something like this would effect it but it does I guess

good to see you got it working....

it probably had a different primary PCI-E setting in there or something like that

Already tried, Now im a bit worried, I went back to single card again after retrying boot with both, at some point of trying decided to move the default bios jumper and put it back to see if maybe it would help.. no luck however now its not showing a signal period, went back to dvi to hdmi no luck, tried mini hdmi.. nothing, i don't know its its because of the tv and the graphics card maybe its hung on the bios screen or boot screen and its just glitching with the signal to tv because this has happened before but usually after it boots to windows its fine next reboot I can see the bios and boot list, idk I guess I'll just borrow someones monitor and use the vga adapter and see what happens, I also tried taking the card out (with vga switch card in PCI-E 1 slot) and using the integrated hdmi out.. no luck

you need to press the mem-ok button in between CMOS clears or it won't post. i owned one of those boards.

your psu is fine and more than capable of handling 2 cards. your mobo should also work no problem. i would recommend the SLI bridge because they are now required by nvidia for SLI and you will not be able to enable it on 2xx.xx drivers without one, so if the option doesn't show up at all that is probably why is my guess.

I have tried the mem ok button, I have tried moving the jumper to reset I have took out the battery and put it back in.. I can't even get it to post with just the on board video, I tried hooking it up with vga onboard, I tried with the onboard hdmi.. I have retried just the single card with the vga switch in..

Im starting to think this messed my board up.. and its now to late to rma with new egg however I have a 3yr replacement with asus but I don't want this particular board anymore after all this there is a n force asus board I was looking at..

I can't find a SLI ready, am3 socket, sata 6, usb 3 board

If I do end up getting them to replace it I don't know how to go about re selling it I'll take 100 plus shipping i guess..

what else can I try? i was thinking about flashing the bios b/c there is a new update that is suppose to help but I can even see the screen.. I need to go buy another mobo speaker b/c the one it came with was half way not soldered from the start and it broke while installing..

If the board is truely broken Asus will replace it no questions asked, they're very good about RMAs.

I never really had any problems with the board (mostly just with components added to the board)

Can anyone confirm what the FAQ says? It claims that for 2xx series drivers, you need an SLI bridge. If that's the case, I need to grab one before my second 470 gets here. I'm not too concerned with a ~5% performance drop without one, but if SLI won't work at all, then I'll definitely get one.

Is it normally to lose a ton on your overclock when going to SLI?

My EVGA GTX260 (192) clocks at 756/1512/1242
I just got a BFG (216) and ran Sli Patch 1.0.
Driver version 266.58 -- I have the Sli Bridge Connecting them.
Motherboard Asus Rampage Formula X48 Bios 0902
Intel Quad 9550 @3.8ghz
8G of Corsairs @ 1080mhz DDR2

I can only get stable with both cards at the same time at 702/1404/1242

OCCT GPU memtest is fine on my mem settings so I'm guessing it's the shaders that are the issue.

Max temps I'm seeing are 55deg C.

I have not yet tested the max OC of the BFG by itself. Maybe I should disable SLI and see if the BFG just sucks at overclocking.

ps. Should I start a new thread for this?

i would try and OC the second card by itself...

i found that my second 480 only OCs to 850/1700/2100 stable

where the main one OCs to 900/1800/2200

both a 1.12v

but that is always the way with these things
