Thoughts on my setup

Here's a video of my rig, you can scroll to near the end and you'll see my 2 gtx 680s in SLI. I think it looks cluttered with all that extra tubing and I'm sure my pump has to work harder. My temps aren't bad the cards don't drop below 40C. I have the full coverage blocks from EK, and I want to do an SLI bridge but I'm confused to what I need to get. I have 2 extra rads around and I don't want to mess up again and buy parts that don't fit.

Way too much bling.

You could really tidy up the tubing.

This is what you are looking for .

You just need to find the one that fits your particular blocks.

Thanks for your help, so I need 2 sli bridges? Would this work? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16989/ex-blc-1217/EK_FC_Bridge_Blank_Serial_CSQ_-_SLI_Connection_-_Plexi_EK-FC_Link_BLANK_Serial_CSQ_-_Plexi.html?tl=g30c101s873

Nope,that is actually the part that closes ports on the third slot of this part.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10969/ex-blc-756/EK_FC_Bridge_Dual_Parallel_-_SLI_Connection_EK-FC_Bridge_DUAL_Parallel.html?tl=g30c101s873

So you will need the link above plus the link you posted. That will let you run 2 cards.

EDIT: My bad, you only need the part I linked. The port closer is only for the triple card link.

Man I'm still confused. So I need the first item that appears on there?

What is the exact block you have? You have to have the link, plus the bridge.

I posted the bridge. The link is the part that attaches to the card that faces out and the bridge attaches to it.

So you need one of these.
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10969/ex-blc-756/EK_FC_Bridge_Dual_Parallel_-_SLI_Connection_EK-FC_Bridge_DUAL_Parallel.html?tl=g30c101s873

and also one of these for each card.
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10966/ex-blc-753/EK_FC_Link_GeForce_-_SLI_Connection_EK-FC_Link_GeForce.html?tl=g30c101s873#blank

You just have to make sure to get the correct of each of those to fit your particular block.

Could I just buy this? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16964/ex-blc-1213/EK_FC_Bridge_Dual_Parallel_CSQ_-_SLI_Connection_-_Plexi_EK-FC_Bridge_DUAL_Parallel_CSQ_Plexi.html?tl=g30c101s873#blank

for the bridge then the links with it as well, I think it would look cool
