Hi I recently got my hands on two V2:s.

They're not from the same vendor but acording to what I've read here that won't be a problem. My problem is that i don't have that little tiny SLI-cable. But I have a idea about that maybe I could use a floppy drive cable since it fits in the connector... but, the wrong cables are twisted, so please somone, help me.

How do I get a SLI cable, or how do I make one?

I'm all in your hands now hoomies! =)
Thanks in advance.. ^^

If you can't find one on Ebay you can easily make one from the examples above. I have made several and the work fine. All you need is an old floppy drive cable.

Now about the different cards, they can be a problem. The cards really should be from the same manufacturer and the same amount of memory. The new drivers that are out don't work with mismatched cards from what I have read. I would suggest trying to find a match to one of the cards you have or try swapping with someone you know.

Uh, aren't the Mismatched drivers used for SLI setups with different cards?

Thanks guys!

This will really help.

Over to my mismatched cards: Theyre two 12mb voodoo's and one of them are from creative. The other one I don't know, the only mark on it is the 3Dfx symbol placed where the vendors often place there own marks.
It has EliteMT memory modules (100mhz) and a passive radiator on one of the chips. It strictly follows the base design by 3Dfx ( could it possibly be some sort of reference card?).

And thanks again

If you noticed, I said, "The new drivers that are out don't work with mismatched cards from what I have read". There are older drivers for mismatched cards but no drivers that will run on Win2K or WinXP for mismatched cards. (That I know of)
