But 1,3 is for CrossfireX. Use 1,4 for NVidia:
@nooblady2310 , it is essential to install at least one card in slot 2, 4 or 5 while using triple vga setup in hydralogix mode. As I mentioned before if you want to use crossfire you have to install your cards in slot 1 and three. If you want to ad one additonal nvidia card crossfire mode is disabled and you have to install the higher level card in slot one abd the other two cards in 2, 4 or 5. The chipset automatically detects and switches mode when installing catds on pci-e slot2, 4 and 5. http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=ohsKWHvErq4&page=...
Here's what you do:
Do NOT use Slot 3 for an SLI configuration. Use 1 & 2 or 1 & 4. Hydra doesn't work with Slot 3.
My last post.
1. Remove the 260 and insert only the 480 in slot 1.
2. Uninstall the Hydralogix.
3. Uninstall and reinstall the Nividia driver.
4. Install the Hydralogix (only the 480 is inserted in slot 1).
5. Insert the 260 in slot 4 (leave the 480 in slot 1).
6. Start the PC and start Hydralogix. Both cards should be seen by Hydra.
