SLI Fingers at Different Heights. Help Please
Hi all -
I have had a MSI GTX 1080 Seahawk EK X for around 3 years now. I recently got a sweet deal on an Asus ROG STRIX 1080 so I picked that up and threw it in my rig. I bought a HB SLI bridge to keep the aesthetics and have the HB feature but this is where the problem comes in.
The MSI and Asus boards are different heights from the motherboard...by about 2cm or so. I can get the hard HB bridge on but that means putting stress on the PCI-e slot as well as the SLI fingers. In fact, it is not FULLY seated on either card but working without performance degradation.
So my question is, how can I remedy this? Small PCI-e standoff? SLI finger extenders? Harry Potter fingerous extendomous? Ugh.
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I can take a pic of the rig currently if anyone needs but she is going under the knife in less than a month to reconfigure the cooling loop.
Thanks in advance!
