I followed this guide here for Windows 7 64bit. Did method 2
http://xdevs.com/e107_plugins/conten...php?content.30

It didn't work with the 195.xx drivers I had installed so I installed a 190.xx and it worked brilliantly.


SLi Active


No SLi


It was actually pretty easy to do.

I just may get a UD3 for my Q9550 and a second gtx260 to sli. After the 750i I had, I don't want another nforce board.

I don't recall what my results with the 750i were. My rage at the inability to OC clouded my vision.

On 790X-UD4P?
D'you think it would work on a 790XT-UD4P?
Too bad that it's 8x-8x PCI-E slots though

Circumstances forced me to go inactive back in 2014. I guess I'm back for 2016, but won't be active much! Cheers!

x
It should theoretically work on that board as well. The 8x by 8x lanes shouldn't really pose a problem at all..

OP, that is awesome.

It should work just as fine. The list they had for capable boards didnt have 790x listed but it worked.

The 8x 8x lanes don't mean a thing with these cards.
Check this out.
