SLI connection question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, since my two gtx 580 lightning extreme are taking to long to come to the shop here in Spain, I am planing on buying two zotac gtx 580 amp2.
The cards occupied 3 slots each.
I have a big bang marshall so I would like to put the cards in this way.
In slot 1 one card because is x16, in slot 5 the other card because is also x16.
My question is, I will be able to connect both cards in this way since the distance from one to another is going to be huge, It will be enough with the 120mm sli bridge?

Regards
My System

gapping between 5 slots is around 82mm (sli connector to sli connector), so as long as its flexable your fine
