The Nvidia HB bridges are compatible. If you like it, then I would get that one. Otherwise, have a look at the EVGA or Asus HB bridges. I'm assuming that the minimalist ones you're talking about are the solid or ribbon bridges. I would recommend the high bandwidth bridges over those (such as the ones I mentioned above).

My favorite one is the ROG-SLI-HB-BRIDGE, but it's only available from an eBay seller in Spain for over $100 at the moment. Love EVGA, but not a fan of the huge EVGA lettering on it. I thought I recall reading that the fin design on the Nvidia bridge was not compatible with the EK blocks.

The Nvidia bridge isn't compatible with the Titan X blocks, but it is on the new 1080 Ti blocks (at least that's what it says on EK's website)

hey i have a gigabyte z170 g1 gaming mobo, it has a spacing of 40mm each so for two gpus in sli i need a 80mm spacing sli waterblock does anyone know if they make a dual 80mm parallel or do I need to get the triple and use the blank parallel cover?
Another thing is, I preordered the plexi/nickel versions and the Alcatel back so do you guys think that if I got the plexi parallel terminal it would look ok with the black shroud over or should I just remove the shroud or go with just straight hardline tubing? I want the color to be seen between the gpus is main thing. Plus have the nvidia hb bridge with I'm probably going to change led plus might cover the plexi part of the waterblock as so you would only see the middle where the water is flowing, haven't quit decided with what yet but have some old 3d carbon vinyl laying around I think, maybe just use it for now...its in a TT the tower 900 case so can see both pretty well.
I think I'll see once I get the cards if I can fit some of those apa102-c leds in there they might fit, or maybe at the least use some EL wire or strip if all else fails.

Do you know the deadlines?

We'll sell the LED kit separately. The shroud will be the same you already have. I have no dealines for now sorry.

I don't exactly know how it will work either. But one thing for sure, you won't need to remove the terminal. Only the shroud part.

You'll need to use the triple terminal with a blank for the middle opening.

Unfortunately, and maybe fortunately, Full-cover was never sent to me, although the order was paid for April 5.
Wrote in support of the order canceled. I just do not understand why it was necessary to open pre-orders and write about dispatch from April 12, when there is nothing to send to this day.

Disgusting service.

Mine was supposed to be shipped last Friday, but it was finally dispatched this morning. Annoyingly, it won't arrive in time before I go back to university, so I won't see it for a few months anyway. I contacted EK on Friday (yes, I know it was a national holiday) but still haven't gotten a reply. Normally they're quite prompt with replies, but I don't know what happened this time.

Mine was never sent out and was still processing all weekend. I sent a request to cancel the order Friday and reordered from performance PCs.I also pm'd Atila over on reddit and was told the "Order will not ship". This morning I wake up to thank you for your order email and an email from EK customer service saying my order would be prossed by DHL today and they could not cancel the order..... and that I should RMA it. Seriously? It's most likely still in the building, you're going to ship it to the US and then ask me to RMA it all the way back to Slovenia? Frustrating to say the least. I guess if anyone wants it and the black back plate let me know. mad.gif

I ordered the blocks minutes after they were released and they still haven't shipped. I sent in a support ticket to check the status of my shipment last friday and still haven't received a response (I gave them until today because it was Easter).

In addition, a few folks over on the EVGA forum are reporting some problems, including the 1080 ti sticker peeling off, the block cracking and water leaking past the seals.

I'm not very happy with EK on this one and if the phanteks blocks were available today, I would be cancelling my order (may still cancel my order). Not a happy EK customer.

Good luck trying to cancel. Hope yours is better than mine.
