I think it was EK that .... up to be honest... If you look at every other waterblock on the market.. compatible... they had to make their own lol

What spacing would I need on my bridge with a R5E10 mobo and cards in slot 1 and 3.

Nvidia would call theirs a 4 slot. EVGA would call theirs a 2 slot.

Fyi I have had an increase with two of these bridges too, since I can not get my hands on a hb bridge in Australia (I think there a Little less ugly then the ribbons)

If you do not have a top of the line system running your games in 5k, two soft bridges will be fine. You will see minimal if any gains from a HB bridge.

If you are on the cutting edge with your hardware and playing games in 5k resolution, the HB bridge will give you some gains in fps and reduce micro stutters.

I think we are looking at this from the wrong perspective. The HD bridge does not give "gains". crappier ones give a loss. People should not be excited and happy that more expensive hardware is needed to get the most out of cards you already bought. No cards fully saturate pci-e 3 to 100% do they? The only reason Nvidia has built all this bridge nonsense into their cards is to get more money out of their customers. Another Nvidia tax.

Then why is it out of stock everywhere when nvidia could not meet the demand for it.

Order of transfer speeds:
1) One soft brudge 400 MHz (manufacture spec)
2) EVGA bridge 540 MHz (manufacture spec)
3) Two soft bridges about 560 MHz (extrapilated from frame rate data)
4) 2 EVGA bridges about 580 MHz (extrapilated from frame rate data. Also requires taking apart the bridges, modifying the pcbs slightly, and using the pcbs only.)
5) HB bridge. 650 MHz (manufacture spec)
