SLI Patch

PSU: X-Spice 630w
A while back Asrock published a SLI enabling patch for their ULi chipset based motherboards that have two PCI-Express slots. Various rumors suggested that the patch would also function under other chipsets as well, and allow users with other chipsets to use SLI on their non-SLI motherboards. Unfortunately the original version of the patch installs only on ULi 1695/7 chipsets - you couldn’t use it if you didn’t have a motherboard with that particular chipset.

We’ve managed to rip the installer and to create a modified version of the SLI patch that allows you to use it with EVERY motherboard. We couldn’t do in-depth testing on other chipsets, but if the rumors are true then it should definitely work. Feel free to use it at your own risk, and please post the results in our forums. Remember, this is a modified version and is not supported by Asrock, ULi or Nvidia.

Removed by Nvidia's request, more details here.

Great job NGO team! This will make alot of people happy, I'm sure !

I may have to pick up a DFI LanParty UT NF4 Ultra-D mobo, and test out the patch to see what happens. Unless anyone else has one ?

I tried this SLI Patch on i975, while nothing works.
This is not mine first experience of inclusion SLi on INTEL-platform:

I approximately know what should occur, but in case of anything similar does not occur to this SLI Patch.

You could always try closing the pin methode unless DFI has cracked this down.

This is very interesting for budget ULi users and other chipset users out there if they are successful.

I have ONE thing to say:
Show me even one result in ORB and I shall probably believe that the patch works, for now I see only this: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...53&postcount=6

Big_Sam.. no one has guaranteed that this would work, thats why Rege wants people to test it.

I guess the big thing to note, is that the instructions say to reboot 2x after installing.

It's not an attempt, REGEN tried it before he posted this.

Try downgrading your nv-drivers and then reinstall the patch, could be that nv has already blocked it.
