HOWTO: SLI on a non-SLI Motherboard (GTX5xx compatible 1.0 final released!) - Page 77

post #761 of 1985
Hi again! Im not sure on which chipset drivers to install. I went to your link and entered my os, but i cant find the 860 drivers. On that page i'm using the "find downloads by product name" option. Under product family i chose Chipsets, under product line im guessing i should select desktop chipsets? and under product name i cant find intel 860 chipset family. Also when i install the v1.0 slipatch again is there an easier way for me to uninstall it if it messes up again or do i just do what i did b4 and system restore to previous date?

Gigabyte 870a-ud3 works fine even thought the 1 lane is 4x
tested it against the asus sli motherboard that was 16x2 and got the same fps
1920x1080 res thought

Just wanted to post saying this worked like a charm with my sig rig! I don't have an SLI bridge at the moment, but things seem to be doing alright. Comparing to other 470 SLI scores I've seen, I'm fairly close (somewhere between 5 to 10% lower than comparisons). I chalk that up to my lack of an SLI bridge and my relatively "low" clocked 1055T which is at 3.9Ghz (comparisons were using overclocked i7s).

ok so i updated my chipset drivers. can you tell me how to undo the slipatch if it fails like b4? I had to use system restore. I tried in bios to load optimized default and it didnt boot up until i did safe mode and system restore thanks hodgoes2001

In my experience struggling with this tool, when you see bluescreens it's because your HAL is borked either because you have 2 cards or because you don't... Sooooo if you start seeing the bluescreen again, try removing/readding a card.


Also, as the only other person using a GA-P55a-UD3, I'd be willing to bet there is something specific with our board which stands in our way.

you should be able to just rerun the patch and click reinstall/upgrade

No hodgoes2001, you can't with a P55a-UD3.

I've been through the wringer with this including modding the bios with awardtool myself to insert an sli string into ACPI. It doesn't work on this board, unless there is some other tedious work around.

Don't fret over the SLI bridge. It doesn't always improve performance.
My performance did not improve with the SLI bridge.

My claim to success must have angered the SLI gods. Getting seemingly random "irql_not_less_or_equal" blue screens now. May try to get my hands on an SLI bridge so I can use newer drivers and pray that fixes it, but I don't know.

Have tried various bios/driver/patch versions and updating Windows with no luck.
