At least for a lil' bit.

MSI 1070 Aero just arrived...was gonna sli with my EVGA 1070 FTW.
There's just one lil' hitch....the FTW stands a good 1/2 in taller than the other.:bang head
Gotta get a flexible bridge :-/
 
Nah....I'm not "Prime" anything :beer:

Surprised they're not carried at Microcenter......

Even with the shipping being more than the bridge...it's still a lil' cheaper than this one.

Is there a new NVIDIA's SLI bridge doubles the available transfer bandwidth compared to the NVIDIA Maxwell?
 
Now Im not suggesting you do this, but could you just heat it carefully and bend the pcb ? 1/2 in isnt that much. Might save you from having to wait, and unless you are planning on using it elsewhere .... why not risk breaking it? :shurg:

I may have one here somewhere....

A bit off topic... but performance is about the same until 4K.. check out some some reviews on the web like this one: http://www.pcworld.com/article/3087...ayoff-in-buying-nvidias-40-sli-hb-bridge.html

I understand yer thought process there...but, that would pretty drastically alter the angle of the connector head. So I would need to heat and bend at 2 points.

BTW...thanks a bunch ED :thup:
 
Do you have other old Nvidia GPUs? The SLI-able once should have a bridge like that included, My GTX460 has one.
 
Seems most sli bridges come with the mobo, not the vidcard...either way, my search at home turns up a few of the hard bridges none flexible.

I guess i got the flexible bridge cause its a "cheap" GPU so a hard bridge would be waste of money.
Anyway, Good luck finding one!
 
Hey Luta let me know if you still need one. I got several flexible ones from xfire/sli days and I may have a long one. I just gotta dig 'em out from my junkboxes.
