So today i woke up and decided to put my 8800GTS into the oven....
And i pulled out a pizza!!!!
TiM thank you very much, as crazy as this idea sounded to me and my friend was laughing at me! it actually worked!
It is rly risky to bake a board in an normal oven :)
There are special ovens available for this process, luckily my school has one. I hope that im not gonna need that in the future xD

Hi, I`m from Germany and new to this forum.
I`ve read a lot in the last few weeks about enabling SLi and I ´ve done it successfully on my Gigabyte EP45-UD3P with the modded 190.62 Forceware driver.
My english is not really great, so I`m not sure if the following steps are right to use the new 195.62 driver:

-I have installed the 190.62 driver and SLi is working fine (Win7 x64, Test Mode, UAC off)
-do I only need to install the SLi Patch 0.42 and then install the new nVidia Driver, without uninstalling anything?

Thanks for your help and specially for your great work !

I just installed the 195.62 and then patched with the 0.42, one restart and SLi is working :nutkick:
Thanks to anatolymik :respect:

But, is there no need to use the Windows Test Mode ? It is automatically turned off

it's a pity that just two days ago thought came my mind how to make SliStringInstaller completely, when there is no need for it anymore.
interesting that i wasn't able to it a half year ago.
