Oh I see.

Sorry about that I was thinking that you had linked him to the one that could cool 3 cards.

After looking at your motherboard I have concluded that I may have recommended you the wrong bridge. The bridge I recommended would be the correct one if you wanted to connect two cards placed in the 1st and 3rd Red PCI Express Slots. If you want to place your cards in the first two slots, the standard Dual Parallel Bridge is what you want.

EK offers a few bridges:

Dual (parallel or series): slot #1 & slot#3
Triple (parallel or series): slot #1, slot #3, & slot #5 (I have this for my tri sli setup)
Dual-Tripled Spaced (parallel or series): slot#1 & Slot#5
Quad (parallel): #1, #3, #5, #7

If you go w /the Triple, you'll need to buy a "blank" for the appropriate setup (either parallel or series) to block off the unused port.

I you have three slots in between cards, then you want the "Dual-Tripled spaced" bridge.

Either of these blocks you get, you'll need the "ge-force" links per block to connect to the bridge.

VERY IMPORTANT:
FC Links cannot be combined together, as it was physically impossible to construct all to line-up. Meaning you can only use EK-FC Link R48X0/58X0 in one setup without combining them with other two Link options.

Ditch the radiator. The GT stealth is a terrible performer.

You will also need more than a 240 rad to run two of these cards... base wattage is around 250W each, not including overclocking. You need at least a 360 radiator. Get the XSPC RX360 with the medium speed yates you picked out.

The pump you picked out is pretty meh. Get a MCP 355/655; whichever is cheaper. You can save money on fittings by getting the XSPC res top for the MCP 355.

Post before you buy anything like you did and we'll do our best to help!

charleyhorse you had it right the first time i have my cards in the 1 & 3 solt cuz thats 16x16x on this mb.
@CanadianReaper. 360rad wont fit and i dont want to put it on the outside. at the top of my case i have 2x240rads so the only place i was thinking was at the end of the cards, but i do have a spot for a 120 at the bottom i could do that in push pull sucking air up into my case and then that would also suply fresh air to a 240rad. THIS IS AN OLD PIC but will work for all intensive purposes

Avoid the "X-Flow" Black Ice rads, the others are ok. Even CharlieHorse doesn't recommend that. Here are a few more (240):

Black Ice Pro II Compact High Performance Radiator - Black
Black Ice Xtreme 2 High Performance Radiator - Black
Black Ice® GT Stealth 240 Highest Performance Radiator
Black Ice® GTX Gen Two Xtreme 240 Highest Performance Radiator

EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)

Koolance Radiator, 2x120mm, Copper (High Flow) [no nozzles]

XSPC RX240 Extreme Performance Radiator (My favorite brand )
XSPC RS240
