Water Bridge for SLI'd 670's

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is my first time getting into watercooling. I've done research over the years and always entertained the idea but never actually went forward with it. Now I'm ready and I'm looking to setup two loops in the Corsair 900D that arrived last week.

My second loop is going to be for my Galaxy GTX 670 GC 2GB cards. They are sitting in a MSI Z77A-GD65. Now I believe I have just about everything for my loop figured out, except I am still confused over what block and bridge combination I need to connect these cards in a loop. I have selected EK blocks for my other components so I would like to do the same here.

The blocks I chose for my 670's using the Cooling Configurator on the EK site are EK-FC670 GTX - Acetal+Nickel [3831109856512] . What I don't see though is an option to select a bridge to link them together and I see there are multiple options and I'm not sure of the spacing I need. Also, do I need to purchase the back plate for this block as well?

I'm sure these questions come up a lot so I apologize, but I did do my best to try to find my specific answer via searching but I'm still somewhat confused.

Like most Z77 boards the GD65 is a triple slot board. For two cards you need a Dual 3 slot bridge
either serial

or parallel

3 cards need Triple bridges with the 3 slot spacing on the fist two cards

Back plates are optional but always a good idea.
