Will the outside connectors on a 3-way SLI bridge still work if I snap off the middle connectors?

I'm thinking of getting this nice SLI bridge (see pics below). It's for 3-way SLI, but EVGA says it also works for 2 way, if your 2 cards are 80mm apart (which mine are).

The problem is that in between my 2 SLI Titans, I have a 3rd card. It's a gtx650 that I dedicate to PhysX. This PhysX card will block the middle little rectangular connectors on the bridge.

So, I'm wondering if I can just snap those middle plastic connectors off, since I don't need them anyway. Will the bridge still work?

Yes the bridge will still work just be sure to prevent the pins from touching with electrical tape.
