Overclocking 2 different cards in Sli

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What software can be used to overclock a GeForce and an XFX 6800gs running in sli mode? Do I need to use a combination of different tools?

Will the program you mentioned work on two different Nvidia 6800gs cards running in SLI?

FYI:

SLI FAQ:
Can I mix and match graphics cards?
In order to provide optimal symmetric scaling, SLI Technology requires the NVIDIA GPU to match. For example, a GeForce 7800 GTX must be paired with another GeForce 7800 GTX. Likewise, a GeForce 6600 GT must be paired with another GeForce 6600 GT. However, using the latest Release 80 Graphics Drivers, NVIDIA GPUs sold by different manufacturers can be used together in SLI Mode. For example, a GeForce 7800 GT from vendor ABC can be matched with a GeForce 7800 GT from vendor XYZ.
