hey guys i cant see the SLI enable tab in my Nvidea control panel.
i can only see "set physx configuration" not " set SLI and physx configuration" in my 3D settings.
i have updated ALL the drivers, double checked pci- express slots and such. also iv made sure all the components are sli compatible

components are:
intel i5- 2500k
8gb gskil 1600GHz
asus p8p67-m pro
2x evga gtx 460 super clocked EE
AcBel R8 800 (750W) 80Plus

PLEASE HELP

Have you got W7 fully updated? I found that I had to 'force' a couple of them when I first got my GTX560's, I didn't have to do that when I reinstalled W7 on the SSD though.

I have not played with SLi'd 460's only a single one but still, I've always found SLi quite reliable and easy to work with so its a shame to hear that you are not having the same experience. What drivers have you tried?

Did you get any updates about that new SLI bridge? I would try to remove the drivers, then remove the cards, and put the second card in the first slot, and install the drivers, and restart into the windows just to finish the installation. Then put the other card (the one that was in your first PCIe slot) into the second slot, and put the bridge on, and let nVidia pop up with a notification that this system is SLI capable. See if that works.

There is still the 285.27 & 285.38 beta drivers to try if you want but I don't think your problem is driver related tbh.
