Default sli on a non sli board (nf4 ultra)

Alright , folks, X'mas gift here

have you thought NF4 ultra also can do SLI ?
How? Here is the deal! Don't know if other brand can do this BUT MSI NF4 Ultra does!

ow, idd it's a 2x slot, but still. Even if it's as fast as a AGP4x slot, is the graka designed to work in a pci-e 2x slot?

It's weird, it's maybe only plugged in the mobo for 1/3 or so, but still it works ??? Is it because all traffic goes via the PCI-e 16x slot and the 2x only powers the card ???

so it's possible to use a sli setup in 2 1x pci e slots? Maybe not so fast, but it's possible.
