4 way sli? Thought all that ended years ago?
Negative, I personally brought it back to life & been doing it for over 3 + years with excellent results but takes tons of time tuning.

When tuning on my 4 GTX 970's, to do and learn everything on your own, including nvidia inspector bit tuning, its going to take about a year just to smooth it out, that's if you did and learned everything on your own, please feel free to visit my extreme 4-Way Sli thread, what everyone thought was impossible, proved them all wrong.

My only SLI experience was with GTX 970 SLI 5 years ago..

But yeah, the point of the whole thread is to have a more or less working non-official SLI solution :)

Just heads up, I have gotten these drivers to work:

388.71, 417.35 & 430.85.

I can only get up to or slighly higher then 2 way for the 4 Titan V's.

And yes, you will also need to change one of the unknown ID settings within nvidia inspector to use more then 2 Titan V's other benchmark programs, this bypass also applies to the Pascal Gpu's.

Under NVCP, it says anything more then 2 gpu's is for benchmark programs only, erh wrong, there is a bypass to everything, many thanks to Venturi on helping me on this.

Speaking of which, I am in constant communication with Venturi, you all might heard of him on other forums, he is helping me alot in this as we speak.

Also in addition to all of this, for those who are seriously into tuning Sli in general and with nvidia inspector, feel free to post a comment on our forum within guru3d .com, I will always reply very quickly.

One more thing, the only game that works under DX12 right off the back with no tuning required (Also applies to 4 Titan Xp's/Top Pascal Gpu), is non other then Rise of the Tomb Raider, but with the Titan V's, even under 2-Way Sli, its a no go, DX11, yes, but needs to be fine tuned within nvidia inspector, even then, still requires much work.

Even though I may go with CF on my 2nd rig, I'll follow with enthusiasm what you can help here with guys. Totally following.
