sli water blocks, series or parallel? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
ok, Im going to go with serial I think.

Now, can someone help me figure what i need to get my two blocks linked together?

I cant really afford one of those expensive ek bridges. My board is asus p8p67 deluxe which has ?three space? pcie? im not sure if it is considered 2 or 3, but it goes like this *PCIE*, pci, pci, *PCIE*

I was just going to use barbs with tubing and a couple clamps, but im not sure that will fit. Any ideas? Also, I dont like moving parts, swivels stuff like that. I like solid connections with no moving parts.

If you go w/ ek, hk, or aquacomputer, they have links/bridges to attach them. Or, there are plenty of sli/crossfire fittings from different manufacturers. Just take note how many slots will the gpu(s) be apart.

you can get the ek "dual-triple spaced" bridge or any fittings with 2 slot spacing in between.

Don't buy the stupid POS Feser SLI bridge whatever you do... Argh. My weekend is ruined because for the first time ever, I had the threads shear off of the fitting, and without much wrenching power at all... I just noticed that the XSPC fittings and some others use the finger-grip fittings for that setup... Probably for a reason...

I've never had a problem with any other fitting brand, but that damn Feser SLI bridge is the first time I've ever experienced a problem, so now I don't have a computer for another 3 days until a new set comes, since I only have standard barbs to replace it with which don't have enough room in 2 slots, and there is no local watercooling companies to my knowledge.

PCIE1
PCI

It's a 2 slot, I have a 1 2 and 3 "slot" spacers for my card-to-card kit that broke, and the 3 was WAY too long (well, one slot too long), and 1 was for card backed to card, 2 fit perfectly for the top two 16x length slots, even though it's the third slot down from the top slot.

There's different definition between Feser/TFC vs Bitspower

eg.
== slot1 (PCIE1)
slot2 (PCI)
slot3 (PCI)
== slot4 (PCIE2)

to connect PCIE1 & PCIE2, u must use either:
TFC 2-slot fitting or
Bitspower 3-slot crystal

Crap. It was a bitspower kit I ordered. time to change the order! Thanks for the heads up!
