SLI with different manufacturers?

Will there be any problems if you use, same model of cards in SLI, but with different manufacturers? Like an Asus and an OCZ 8800 GTX? Or is it only essential for models to be the same?

  1. Plz read the FAQ before posting:

    What about brands ?
    Well the brand doesnt matter , again for example , you can use a XFX card with a EVGA card , or a SAPPHIRE card with a DIAMOND card , just make sure they have the same memory and same clocks.

    What will happend if 2 cards have the same amount of memory but one has higher clocks than the other?
    One of the best ways to learn is to make examples.
    You have a 8800GT(Normal edition,no OverClocks) and you want to add another 8800GT(Which is OverClocked),then:

    1_The OverClocked one will lower its clocks to reach the Non-OverClocked card.

    2_You can OverClock your card(The one that has Stock frequencies) and reach the OverClocked card.
    Remember, you cant ALWAYS OverClock the normal card to reach the other card,because it may not OverClock that much and may become unstable.
  2. Card don't need need to be the same manufacturer. NVidia has info on this in their SLI section.
