Sli connectors (help and win?)
Was talking with Braineater this morning about his tri sli issues. He needs a 150mm sli connector to reach the bottom card. He is attempting to setup the tri sli on the new asus x79 board but keep spacing between the cards for better cooling. (makes perfect sense to me)

Problem is the 120mm connector isn't long enough to reach the bottom PCIE slot.

Anyone who finds a good answer to this will probably get a HWC coffee cup for xmas by your local mad scientist.

GAME ON!:bananafunky:

150mm is around 6 inches. So that one is too short Kapt! No Mug 4 U!

I checked my box-o-stuff (finally) for the brain. No luck. Longest one I have is the one in the image above...

6 inches is a long way. Is there no 3rd party 'double spaced 1-4-7' Triple SLI connectors on the aftermarket?

Someone should patent this and make millions!
