Which ek bridge do I need?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For setting up SLI watercooling (two 470s) on an Asus P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard, which EK bridge do I need for the circled slots, triple or dual? they're the two topmost pci-e slots, but they seem kind of far apart. and besides just the bridge (this), what other parts do I need?

You will need the triple bridge, to be sure you can check the specs here. Just measure the distance between the slot you are going to use and it should be the same as the distance between the link attachment openings on the bridge.

You will need two of these links.

ek sli bridges:
dual :slots #1 & #3
triple: slots #1, #3, #5
dual-tripled spaced: slots #1 & #5*
quad: slots #1, #3, #5, #7

as you can see, its every other slot*, you have two slots in between your pcie slots. sorry, so it won't work, try the sli fittings or tube to connect your cards.

eidt: *only exception in being spaced a bit different, though that has three slots in between, this one will not work w/ your mb.

Wow, good info. Thanks +rep

At least I included the measurement spreadsheet and did not just recommend the triple bridge. redface.gif

OP, its ~70mm from the top card to the second one, find the links that will span that length. You only need one if your going to run in series/serial or two for parallel.
