EK Bridge on SLI

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all, a quick question about the EK Bridges. I am about to build my first loop, with 2x GTx580. I have got the ek blocks already and want to connect them using the ek bridge. I Have a Asus P6T deluxe system board, currently the cards are in the slots recommended by asus, which have two normal pci slots in between. My question is, which bridge do I need, triple or quad (I'm assuming it isn't the dual).

Many thanks in advance.

Yes, thats the one, so will I need the triple or quad, going by the slots my gpus are in?

From the looks of it you would probably need a quad. Btw, just to be sure, your cards are in the blue and white pcie slots right? If they are, then you need a quad.

Here you go-

http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/EK...1109855102.pdf

Those are the exact measurements for the triple bridge. Use those measurements and compare them to the distance between your cards in the slots they are in now and you should get a good idea of which bridge you need.

The quad bridges measurements are on the same site as well.

Hi snips, yes they are in the blue and white (as recommended), so yes I would agree on a quad as well. Pulkpull, I will check the measurements just to make sure. Thanks all.
