Crossfire bridge without the tab?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an issue concerning the ability to fit my GPU's in the slots I would like. The reason for this is because of my H50's radiator and how close it is to where the crossfire bridge tab ends up sitting.

I was wondering if those yellow tabs on each end do anything other than give provide extra ease of installation. If not, would it be safe to trim that little tab off so it would fit? Alternatively, are there any bridges out there without those tabs to begin with?

My guess is that they're just there to make it easier for you to pull it off
