probably a stupid question but even gigabytes page doesn't say! found it for £70 new. 8+2phase control. not heat sinked but can that be modded?

The only boards out there that support AM3+ and SLI are 900 series (990FX, 990X, and possibly some 970 chipset boards)

There is an SLI hack that may work but I've never used it?
