GPU SLI Waterblock Connector

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have 1 slot space between my gtx 580's with the stock coolers on them. What connector do I need to link them together a 3 slot or a 2 slot water cooling connector?

Get a D plug...http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/bishg14si1id.html

They come in different lengths and have a little wiggle room.

Koolance single slot one works great. It is adjustable up to about 2.5 slot seperation.

Depends on the blocks you purchase and how much eye candy you want.

The above methods work great, then again, so does an EK parallel bridge.

They look ugly as hell though.

The Bitspower things look best, but make sure your block has no protrusion on the inlet/outlet (like the XPSC 580 block) otherwise you won't be able to fit the cards back into the PCI-E slots due to the increased distance between them.

I like the Koolance one because of its adjustability. It looks just OK though. And if you need parallel configuration for some reason, it's too narrow for that to work, but it's perfect for serial.
