With my 3 GTX460, how works the Hyper SLI ? 16x / 16x / 16x or 16x / 8x / 8x ?
With the Lucid chip I can work in 16x / 16x / 16x. But the problem with the Lucid Hydralogix is that the manufacture Lucid has stopped the update of theires Hydra drivers...and now the most of the last PC games (like Medal of Honor Warfithter ) are not compatibles.
The Lucid chip adds some extra lanes in there. It will still work 16/16/16 or 16/16/8/8 if all slots are populated. Software has nothing to do with lane assignment that is a physical piece of hardware.

Ha ok. It is too late, I have already the two bridges ordered... :)
But it don't worry about it, the bridges are not expensive :)
Thank you for the precision
Not a problem ;)

Thank you for your informations Cdawall.

But now I found a small problem: I have 3 GTX460 and the 460 are only one connector to make SLI. This means that I cannot make 3 way SLI. Because the 3-way bridge has 2 connectors for each card. But the 2-way SLI has one connector for each card. The ideal would be to have a bridge with 3 connectors with only one for each graphics card. But this specially bridge unfortunately don't exist.

You did it again, and its seamless again.

Windows 8 RTM fully tweaked my double click is so fast now it often single clicks
310.33 SLI
2600K
Only 8800GTX SLI but I see no need to upgrade
Cheap Gigabye mobo that only cost me 35 dollars crossfire only until this tweak
DXVA is more flawless than on Release Preview which was better than 7
Played some CS:GO I think 310.33 might actually be a little slower with my cards need more testing and tweaking to catch up to my RP install.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit was even more fluid than it already was. Cleanest I have ever seen it.

powercfg.exe -h off
bcdedit /set useplatformclock true
bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes

Throw those into an admin elevated cmd prompt the first one of course removes the hibernate file. Windows 8 is slightly gimped because it reduces battery life for tables, but its utterly horrible on a desktop for gaming. I also disabled c-states and eist in the bios but I live hyperthreading enabled and disable hyperthreaded cores in process lasso only for the gaming process itself. Oh yeah disable core parking too.

Hi Jesseleite,
I have the same motherboard that you, but with the CPU Phenom II X6 1100T. How works your FX-8150 with the Crosshair IV Extreme ? How many MHZ can you go with it ? Are the perfomance really better that the Phenom II ?
the beta bios sucks, very basic. no overclocking or core unlocking...:( ASUS is dragging on a new one. system is stable

1. Yes works with dual, tri and quad SLi including different SLi.
2. See above.
3. Uninstall the Lucid drivers as a whole regardless of SLi they suck.



Try pm'ing about that one ;) just FYI the Crosshair IV E will boot with an 8350 in it no issues couple of people have already tried and succeeded.
Thx!

3-way SLI with GTX460

Yes but with the Lucid, the 3-way SLI works without Bridge. And with the Hyper SLI, I need a Bridge. I have 3 GTX460 and with the 460 cards are only one connector to make the SLI. This means that I cannot make 3 way SLI. Because the 3-way bridge has 2 connectors for each card. But the 2-way SLI has one connector for each card.

only other option is too use 2 in SLI with the bridge with hyper SLI and the third card would be for physx....my opinion is that it is better then 3 way Hydra. i was so sick of waiting for the new driver releases and it only worked on a few applications.

Question about UAC

Hi Jesseleite !
Thank you very much for your explanations and advices.
About the UAC, what happens if I do not disable UAC ?
After the installation of the Hyper SLI, can I again enable the UAC ?
Thank you for your information.
Best regards

Uninstallation Lucid driver

..btw i couldnt get it to work on windows 8 anyway.
Technically, is it possible to install the hyper SLI without uninstall the Lucid driver (only by disabling the Lucid driver) ? Or is it imperative to uninstall the Lucid driver ? Have you tested ?
Thank ou in advance for your confirmation.
Best regards

Hi federicoz45 !
What is these drivers 310.54 ? Is it Nvidia drivers ? My original Nvidia drivers are the 306.97 WHQL. Where are you going to find the 310.54 ? Is it beta drivers ?
Thank you in advance for your informations.

Hi Jesseleite and Cdawall !
For your information, I have tried to install the hyper SLI 0.96 without to uninstall the Lucid HydraLogix driver of my Asus Crosshair IV Extreme. I have only disabled the Lucid Chip on the Lucid panel and after directly installed the Hyper SLI 0.96. That works perfectly !!! That is great !!! :toast:

My configuration is following:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Asus Crosshair IV Extreme
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition
8GB G.Skill Flares F3-16000CL7Q-2GBFLS (4x2GB)
3 Graphics cards EVGA GTX460 FTW EE (2 in SLI and 1 in PhysX)
Nvidia driver 306.97 WHQL
HDD WD Velociraptor 64MB 600GB Sata III

Best Regards

Unfortunately, I have a small problem. With the 3D games, the picture is in 3D but the led of my screen Asus VG278 don't work. With the screen Asus VG278 it is not necessary to have the kit 3D Vision 2 because the system is included in the screen VG278. And when the 3D Vision 2 System works, there are one green led on the screen. And now I have not the green led, and I cannot use the 3D vision 2 glasses because the 3D kit sytem of my sceen don't detect the 3D.

Update from HyperSli 9 to 9.6 question

Which is the correct way to update?
download version 9.6 and install (the way I did it) or delete 9 then install 9.6?

Just downloaded and installed the 310.54 drivers.
Ran a couple of games and benchmarks, no problems at bootup or with gameplay.

Hi Friends !
I have again tried to uninstall the Lucid driver, and after install the Hyper SLI driver. And now the 3D Vision 2 works perfectly with my screen Asus VG278. The uninstallation of the Lucid driver was the best solution. Thank you very much an Jesseleite and Cdawall !
