Hi!

So, I just finished my custom waterloop for my cpu and I am no going to add the sli gtx 670 I have.

This is where i get confused, I'm going with the http://techbay.no/product.html/ek-vannblokk-for-skjermk... waterblock.

So, I got the z77 sabertooth motherboard and will need a bridge that fits that. The spacing between the pci e slots is 6cm, so is this a dual or triple bridge? Also I'm a little lost as to what you need between the bridge and the block and also what to buy for locking up the 3rd spot if its a tri bridge.

Best regards,
Mocco

Depends on which 670's you have, it may be a reference or non-reference Pcb so post manufacturer and we'll go from there, non-ref may not have fullcover blocks available though, just so you know

I got reference 670 pcb with the gainward gtx 670, and also what are the downsides with the ek nickel+acetal block? I really love the looks !

And thanks again!

Best regards,

The only thing that really concerns me is the fitting between the cards,

I see two holes in each block that goes straight through, would it, if only 1 cards was used, be able to go in whatever hole and out whatever hole you wanted and just plug the others ?

Sorry if i come of like an idiot, but want to buy the right parts etc.

theres a lot of documentation on the net about it, EK's 'solution' is to blow your guarantee unless you use their approved coolant,
which is no way to solve a problem, so most folks will steer you away from their nickel stuff, I have two of the HF Supreme Vga copper blocks on my loop so no problems with EK, just their nickel blocks :)

its down to your aesthetic tastes at this point, reference means you have a greater choice, or you can go for universal blocks which will fit your next upgrade cards too, but will require VGA Heatsinks to cover the Vram chips

I missed the question about plugging, you posted whilst I did :) 
yes, a lot of blocks have four holes, you just select which you want to use and the blocks should come with two plugs for the unused ports

Oh ok, so all i need is lets say 1/4" fittings in two holes and just tubing inbetween? that'll do? without the bridge ?

Scroll down bro, they come with five 1/4 plugs....
I guess they brought out a new and improved version lol, only used to have the normal number of ports, and yes, you can still use normal fittings and a wee bit of tube to bridge :) 
Sheesh, newbs :p
