NVIDIA SLI Patch For Any Motherboard

The NGO Patcher adds several INFs to your Windows configuration -- the result should enable SLI in your NVIDIA toolbar
Dying to give SLI a try but don't have quite the right motherboard? A new patch might give you a sneak peak
A few days ago we reported on
the leaked ULi driver patch
that enables SLI on any Detonator driver if the patch finds a ULi Northbridge. ULi (ironically
) created the patch to work with existing and future NVIDIA drivers -- other similar hacks required the use of ancient drivers to work correctly.
A few people were able to take our advice and create
a patcher from the ULi INF
files. The result? SLI on any platform, no matter what the chipset (just so long as you have two PEG adaptors).
Several motherboards have multiple PEG slots, but without the SLI license from NVIDIA, those motherboards have never been sanctioned to run SLI mode. Motherboards that currently have multiple PEG adaptors but are not authorized to run in SLI mode include:
NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra
NVIDIA nForce4 4X
Feel free to give these chipsets a try and report your success.

I think this kind of solutions, where you are forced to use parts of the same manufactures, are against the principle of the PC computer.
Good were the days when even diferent brands of CPUs uses the same socket.
We should stand against this kind of thing, or soon we´ll have a lot of parts that are not compatible with other brand´s parts, and we´ll have a lot of Apple´s like computers.
Can you imagine ATI cards with their own slots, and Nvidia with another slot, PCI-E-A and PCI-E-N!!! Lol!

also, does this work for dual gpu cards? cuz then you wouldnt need 2 pegs, but could still use the SLI dual gpu cards. or maybe you could always do this?

We already have this in the notebook stage... Axion versus MXM.
