Which EK link do I need for my water blocks on my 7950's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I have recently picked up a pair of EK-FC7950 water blocks http://www.ekwb.com/shop/blocks/vga-blocks/ati-radeon-full-cover-blocks/radeon-hd-7xx0-series/ek-fc7950-acetal-en-nickel.html, I am needing to know which bridge I need to connect them. I have the Asus Maximus VI hero motherboard, I am not sure what spacing I have and if it needs to be the parrallel one. Would it be this one http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_1018_1038_1207&products_id=34577 I just dont know if thats the correct spacing for my board.

BTW my pump is a single D5 vario.

You have what's called "classic" ek blocks so you need the "classic" ek bridge and link systems.

You need two of the "Radeon FC-Link 58xx":

And you need the classic dual 3-slot bridge:

Parallel bridge has been marked as end of life product on EKWB's shop so unless some shop still has old stock available then you will have to go with serial version : http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_1018_1038_1207&products_id=30021
