EVGA has proved again how good they are when it comes to customer support by releasing an SLI Enhancement Patch.
SLI profiles are a part of Nvidia Forceware drivers, they are present in a form of expandable list in Nvidia control panel. What these profiles does? these SLI profiles are needed for pc games and 3D programs to use two or more GPUs to their fullest extent, some games or 3D programs require specific SLI profiles build for them otherwise they won’t run or perform well in SLI mode. As you know every month several new games are released, even though Forceware drivers can run them we need special SLI profiles to get optimized performance from our dual-GPUs for those specific games or 3D programs. Since Nvidia takes some time to update Forceware drivers to bring SLI support for those specific games or 3D programs EVGA took the plunge to release their own enhanced SLI profiles.
SLI Enhancement Patch Info
This is the first SLI Enhancement patch (version: 02.11.09) from EVGA, Evga will update it from time to time, it’s available on their site for their registered users, this patch will improve the SLI performance in pc games Necrovision Demo (DX10 mode) as well as Burnout Paradise. EVGA recommends using this patch with NVIDIA’s ForceWare 182.05 WHQL driver suite.
Whom Should Use This Patch?
If you own a dual gpu card like 7950GX2, 9800GX2 or GTX 295 and if you are running two gpu in SLI configuration.
This patch will work only in Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit as well as in Windows 7.

Real Temp version 3.00 has been released. It is a very useful utility that you can use to monitor your Intel Core processors temperatures with a breakdown of temperatures on a per-core and T-junction basis. Distance to TJ Max defines the state where your processor begins to throttle itself. So when it reaches 0C it will start to underclock itself in order to reduce temps.
Unfortunately this utility will not work with Intel Pentium processors, so, if you have an Intel Pentium processor this is not useful for you but if you have an Intel Core processor whether Single Core, Dual Core or Quad Core this will work for you. These Core processors comes with a digital thermal sensor (DTS) that informs of temperature data relative to TJMax which is the safe maximum operating core temperature for the CPU.
This utility works with Core i7 processors even in Turbo Mode, where the software controls frequencies and power of each processing cores. This utility brings plugin support for RivaTuner which monitors Nvidia video cards temperatures and also supports Microsoft Windows 7.
