Asus M4A78-e with SLI hack enabled, dont let 3 gpus confuse you, first two are IGP readings because I mainly run on integrated becuase I don't trust the backup PSU biggrin.gif

So it's not enough to just flash it down to the 260's clock, you need to actually flash it with a GTX 260 bios so it identifies as a GTX 260 and not a GTX 275.



Check the first screen, GTX 260 bios on it and it runs and reports itself as GTX 260, all other shots are for elimination

Belive it or not, I was bored one day and decided to try it because I have a spare GTX 260. I didn't expect the 275 to boot but when it did I was really surprised

This looks really great! I want to do this, so I need to know how you did it, and what you used to flash it with.

Also, the mobo will be an ASRock N7AD-SLI (nVidia nForce 740i SLI), and would I end up trashing the GTX 275 if done wrong?

Sent you the instructons in PM, if you flash the wrong bios on the card all you need to do is flash the right bios back on it and it will work, the worst that can happen is that the card wont give you display untill you flash it back...
