2-way SLI water link

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey,
I am in the process of ordering everything for my build and I ran into a snag that I can't seem to find an answer on online. I'm sure it's somewhere but everything I see is for 4-way SLI. My setup, the part that you need to know about, is listed below...

ASROCK x79 Extreme11 motherboard (7 total PCIe slots, we will label them 1-7, 1 being closest to the CPU)
2x EVGA 680 Classified Hydro Copper (2-way SLI, slot 1 and slot 3)

I am looking for something that connects the 2 cards together for the water loop, if I can get the part in red you get bonus points! I will eventually be going up to 4-way SLI but that won't be for like 6 months at least. I am trying to get this order in as soon as possible so that I can get it shipped out or at least prepared today.

I believe you're looking for something like this

You can try bitspower SLI fittings. Male to male, adjustable. If you want 4 way, then you can just add two of these.

The item is only for Heatkiller blocks I think.

Have you looked at the bitspower crystal link, its clear so if you use red coolant youll get close to what your looking for. The only other thing i could find is

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=G1%2F4%22+Deep+Blood+Red+D-Plug+Set

the only problem you may have with that is if the distance is too long for the fitting, but you could get some

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=Deep+Blood+Red+IG1%2F4%22+Extender

in the same color to make up the difference.

According to the site's compatibility chart, it only works with aquagraFX waterblocks and not the Hydro Copper waterblocks.

This looks like it would be too short to have the cards in slot 1 and slot 3, it looks like they would have to be in 1 and 2. Would you be able to confirm?

I was looking at the crystal links, but then someone said that I need to measure my board to make sure it fits, although I don't quite have the board yet because it's still being shipped. I won't be using any color coolant but if it's just a plastic kind of tube then I can paint the outside of it black or red if I need to. Since every waterblock has different in's and out's, and the boards could possibly be spaced differently I didn't know what one to pick up since there are like 5 different options.

There is a longer version for 1-3 configuration of that. But if you're going to 4 sli soon, the longer one will be no use then. Plus there is no performance difference between 1-2 and 1-3. PCI-E 8x is enough for any graphics card in the market.
