Triple sli with ribbon sli bridges - Solved! - Page 2

post #11 of 53
Why don't you post the spacings (top card to second card to third card). If, by some crazy fluke my old rigid tri sli bridge fits, I will send it to you.

Three way hard bridge don't work. I've seen two: 1) every other space and, 2) first two are one spaced, the third is a dual spaced. I wish there was a triple hard bridge with dual spaces/slots in between.











I ordered the 120cm bridge, I'll see if that helps. If not, i'm going back to Amd (meh frown.gif ).

The msi lightnings also come with the extra long sli bridge, not sure if they can be found separately. AMD might not work better than nvidia, it's more of a motherboard limitation, not the ribbon cables vs. hard bridge.

I had three 6970 lightinings. One ended up being bad so I got a refund on it. sold the other two. All three benched perfectly well smile.gif I used two 100mm ribbons without any hesitation of the crossfire option smile.gif

The mb only allows 8x in this configuration, not a huge loss for me. I just want these three cards to sli!mad.gif

I just measured a 4-way evga bridge I had lying around. The top and bottom connector are in the ideal place, I measure it and it came to be 130mm. So the 120mm bridge won't work frown.gif. I can't seem to find that 140mm bridge.

I get it, the config with those 3 slots (1,3 & 5) worked on that mobo with the AMDs since they didn't need the bridge from card 1 to card 3, so the nvidia in slot 5 is detected & you just need the longer ribbon to enable tri sli. I'm slow today...

Np thumb.gif. So as I suspected, the top and bottom card have to be connected, ???

I shot MSI an email if they still have any of the 140mm bridges and where can I get one. Hopefully they can help me out seeing i have three of their cards biggrin.gif. Crossing fingers smile.gif
