Universal GPU SLi Bridge question.

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Okay so I just found that Swiftech has made a SLi bridge for their universal gpu blocks. My question is shouldn't I be able to use this on my EK universal gpu blocks as well? I was just wondering if anyone else had actual experience with the product.

Link to the bridge in question.

You'll want to find a technical drawing of the EK block. More than likely the inlet/outlet spacing is different. "Universal" normally only means universal to different GPUs. NOT universal to other Company's blocks. They want you to buy all their gear, Not mix and match.

EDIT: I stand corrected The spacing is only a half mm and ass you use tube to connect from the block to the bridge you should be fine. just check your spacing between cards and make sure you dont put any stress in or out by trying to flex the cards in or out to make it work.

Meh i went ahead and ordered it. It just uses the bridge to accept the hoses coming off the gpu blocks. If it works it works if not oh well.

i have it for my rig but i also have swiftech's mcw82s. i like it. i used an extender and male to male adaptor to connect mine instead of barbs and tubing. works great imo.
