ASUS Sabertooth P67 EK Serial Bridge

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, im about to purchase my sabertooth p67, upgrading from the asus pro, and with 6990+6970 (both ek) im wondering if i can use the EK Serial Bridge.

EG:

Ive read somewhere that its no compatible with the slot spacing on the p67 sabertooth, in which case ill just have to use tubing between the cards?

If it is compatible then should i use the triple or dual bridge?

Thanks

Let me check which one you need, as I have those EK bridges. Also, I recommend a parallel bridge, not serial.

Parrallel? Even though there wont be the same flow rate between blocks? (As far as i know, a EK6990+EK6970 wont have the same flow rate as the 6990 is bigger?) Or doesnt that effect their performance?

Thanks mate

OK, you need whats called a Dual 3 slot bridge. Your choice of serial or parallel. Also note, you need 2 FC-links also

In serial, you will have increased restriction and you will be stacking the heat drawn from GPU1, to GPU2, and GPU 3. In parallel, the flow rate will split running through two blocks, but no added restriction. I've ran this setup before in parallel with a single DDC-1 10 watt pump with no heat issues.

As a FYI, if your in the US, I have a EK nickel-plexi 6970 waterblock sitting if you need one. It was used for a week only.

@Mitx212:

Do you sucessfully run your 6970 an 6990 in one system? I have three 6970s and one 6990 in my computer, but fail to get them all five to mine simutaniously (Ubuntu 32bit). I can initalize aticonfig with the three 6970s or with the single 6990, but --adapter=ALL leads to a blackscreen when rebooting.

Anyone can help?
