MSI 4850 Crossfire Link Missing

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi

Just received one of the above cards and there appears to be no crossfire link supplied, I was wondering if anyone else had this problem.

Cheers

Doesn't it usually come with the motherboard? Boards have different spacings between PCI-E slots

If that's true, then why are all the slots on pc cases the same?

It usually comes with the motherboard as opposed to coming with the cards. I got a SLI and TRISLI bridge with my 780i.

Thanks for the correction

I would email MSI about the issue...

EDIT: According to this image @ newegg.com, there isn't one included with the card...

SLi comes with the board but the Crossfire links should be supplied with the card, hopefully someone else with a 4850 can let us know what was supplied with their card.

Robilar got his 2 4870s installed:

and it seems he got the bridges with the cards. The 4850 is a similar product so yep.
