Default Terminal Block SLI - RIVE Migrate To MXIE

Hey guysQuick one..(thought this may come up)...just recieved the MXI E Board and I the first thing I checked was the top 2 SLI PCI E Slots....and the included HB SLI Bridge . The included SLI Bridge doesnt fit the present configuration on my 2 1080Ti 's presently mounted on my RIVE Board with FC Terminals to connect the Watercooling.....hhhmmmm.
It doesnt look like I can use my Terminal Blocks (which I like for mounting and rigidness)....its a Triple Terminal Block and Im using the top and bottom mounting positions...I have the middle blanked off....I maybe able to use the top and middle instead.
Any suggestions (most suitable) for connecting the 2 1080Ti's if I dont use the Terminal Block? Would like to be able to set-up both Cards together and simply lock them onto the Board then make Water Tube connections.....sorry I havent used anything other than the Terminal Blocks to connect 2 Cards....


Any suggestions welcome..

You could do small pieces of hard tubing, I think Bitspower used to sell it like that, 2 fittings and a short piece of acrylic tube. Nowadays you could just buy a 1M piece of tube and 4 fittings, cut to size and done.

Could do spacer fittings too, depending what the distance is. Combination of:

Yeah thanks JD..did a bit more research and I believe I can get another Terminal Block with spaces that are designed for a Board with 2.4" SLi PCI-E spacing....my RIVE is 4 PCI-E Slots all 1.6" spacing....my present arrangement is 1st and 3rd slot so 3.2"......
