MSI’s New 3-Way, 4-Way SLI Bridges Have Fans

MSI launched two new SLI bridge kits for 3-way and 4-way multi-GPU system configurations designed for use with the company’s GeForce GTX 900-series graphics cards. We first caught a glimpse of the 4-way SLI bridge at MSI’s suite during CES, and the new kits are now officially available for purchase.

The new kits are a follow up to the premium 2-way SLI bridge that the company launched last year, and they sport the same familiar red and black panels and customizable LED-illuminated MSI Gaming logo as their predecessor.

Unlike the 2-way SLI bridge, the new kits feature a removable 120 mm fan, effectively adding functionality to flare with increased heat dissipation for your 3-way and 4-way SLI configuration.

There's no word yet on pricing, but MSI plans to release the new SLI bridges into the wild in the beginning of April.

    I think it's a pretty good idea. Not everyone wants to deal with water cooling.

    If you have enough money for 3 way SLI and 4 way SLI then chances are you have enough money for a custom liquid loop. This SLI bridge with fan bracket is just a band aid to an issue they will have to revisit in the future.

    So why, why in the hell would someone want another fan in their system just circulating the same hot air....

    Kind of late, SLI bridges won't be required for Pascal.
