Hmm you know that the EK bridge only works on... EK blocks?
They are attached to the GPU block via screws, and arent' compatible to other blocks.

I am using bitspower crystal links and adapters.

I'm using a combination of parallel and serial. But you can go just serial.

I know some are using this to connect, but hadn't try that myself.

About the pump/res from koolance, yeah, it should be able to.
It has the PMP-400 (DDC 3.25 basically) in it, which is a great pump.

That is what I used. Works like a charm on my crossfire setup. I went serial instead of parallel.

and these links:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10...tl=g30c101s873

x1 bridge x2 links

I'm sure its hard to understand, but lets try this again.

EK Links only works on EK blocks.
They will NOT work on evga blocks.
They will NOT work on koolance blocks.
They will NOT work on any other blocks
EK blocks, ONLY.

So, to re-cap:
EK links = EK blocks.
Anything else, not compatible.

No, is that understandable?
No need to go thick headed. Read what was posted.
