Hello,
I was just wondering if anyone has successfully managed to set up a GTX460 and GTX460 SE in SLI. I have been trying for a while now and I cannot get the option to turn on SLI in the Nvidia control panel. I've done the whole driver upgrade/rollback and bios update to no avail and my cards are both reckognised and outputting in Device Manager. Specs as follows:

Windows 7 UE x64
Asus P8P67 Pro
Intel Core I7 2600K
XMS3 2 x 2 GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800
Palit GTX 460 Sonic
Gainward GTX 460 SE
Dlink G520 wireless PCI card
WD Caviar Green 1.5TB Hard Drive
Intel X-25M SSD
LG CH10LS20 Bluray Drive

I'm starting to get the feeling it's a no win situation.

Any help is much appreciated

They are like the GT200, I guess that every one here doesn't have an attention span nor the memory to remember the GTX 260 ever existed and that there are primarily two versions. The core 192 and the core 216 both A and B versions. 65nm and 55nm. The 65nm core 192 can be used in sli with a 55nm core 216 for the one simple fact they are still the same gpu and have the same device ID thus the option for sli. In order to gain sli function in your case you need to edit the SE to be recognized as a normal GTX 460 with out using a different bios. You will be NVbitor and NVflash to do the job but it will work.
