    SLI Bridge - Question

    Hi all,

    Currently on the hunt for an SLI Bridge for my second 970.

    I know little to nothing about SLI / SLI Bridges.

    Am I correct in thinking that only certain SLI bridges will work with my 970's?

    On that note, can anyone point me in the direction of a suitable SLI bridge?

    Thanks,

    You won't need a high bandwidth one for 970's. If your mobo supports SLI, i think there is normally an SLI bridge in the accesories. (flexi one).

    Something fancier :

    Re: SLI Bridge - Question

    Yeah, pretty much any will work. I got a flexible one that will stretch a few slots meaning I don't have to jam the two cards close together, important to get fresh air to that top card.

    Don't suppose you have a link to it?

    Not sure what length I got in the end, but it was an Asus one like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Snowsun-14G...dp/B01FX5MKYK/

    Cheers, one more question, the 970 has two connectors for the SLI bridge, do I need to connect both or just one?

    You only need one bridge for 2way sli the other connector is for a 3 way and so on you get the point.
