    Hi there.
    I'm confuse about a sli adapter,
    I ordered this product here:

    Phobya Variabler SLI/Crossfire Verbindungsnippel G1/4" - 2 Slot
    What's mean 2 - slot?
    Because I think that I ordered the wrong product.

    Cheers

    Presumably it means for two cards that are two physical slots away from eachouther, which is how the PCIe slots are on most boatds

    Best word in the german dictionary to describe a connector. LOL´ed hard.

    If you need an SLI Bridge with more space.

    G1/4" - 1 Slot
    G1/4" - 2 Slot
    G1/4" - 3 Slot

    They are using the word slot instead of giving a length so you could think of it like this.

    G1/4" - 1 inch for use when 2 cards have no real space between them.
    G1/4" - 2 inch for use when the cards are 2 spaces apart.
    G1/4" - 3 inch for use when cards are 3 spaces apart.

    Personally, I'd use barbs and a tube cut to any length needed. Sure, the metal tube is sexy, but not much flexibility there...

    You could try it first, and during your leak testing and bleeding, if it leaks you know the answer.

    It could leak but probably won't if you take your time and line it up and snug it up proper.. Tip.. Use a tiny bit of Vaseline on the rubber as it helps it seat without twist plus it aids in removal down the road.

    It should be fine, I use the Swiftech GPU adapters which are very similar and its just fine. Make sure you snug Both end of the adapter into the video cards and you will be fine. You do not want to over tighten of course, but normally make sure its a pretty snug fit and your going to be fine!

    With SLI, I just always put the barbs in the cards blocks, and then took a section of 3/8" tubing and stretched it over the 1/2" barbs. Ran my P55 rig like that for a couple years, never leaked.

    definitively that's what I am going to do, that's a safe way to avoid leaks

    keep some hot water on hand, and some way to mechanically stretch the tube a bit before sliding it on. I use needle nosed pliers in reverse to open the tubing up while hot, slide it on, and let it cool and shrink.

    That's all the info I got:

    Description

    The variable Verbindunsnippel SLI combined run two graphics card cooler on a system in the SLI mode. The peculiarity of this nipple is that he about 12 mm in length is adjustable. Therefore, it can be used this nipple with graphics cards of from different manufacturers. The nipple can be used to operate of the series of graphics cards or but if you 2 nipple between 2 graphics cards, so that they are both Durchströhmt parallel chillers. This is of course also with 3 graphics card cooler available. We are the connection nipple SLI in 3 lengths:

    Article for slot 1 64033
    Article 2-slot 64034
    Article 3 motherboards 64035 for slot machines.

    Technical data:
    Direct connection between 2 graphics cards.
    Thread: G1 / 4 inch material: nickel plated brass
    Distance between the cooler: from 39.2 to 50, 6 mm
    Suitable for slot 2 Mainboars distance between the two graphics cards.
    Suitable for Crossfire graphics card cooler EK coolers, Koolance, Fc295, XSPC, OTC-flat radiators

    Attention:
    The nipple is only compatible with graphics cards that have 2 G1/4 thread above and below each. The nipple can be mounted with cooler, to have only connections on a page.

    I changed my mind.
    I found a negative review.

    Piece of trash. Belongs in the trash. Made my 7970 trashed.

    12-12-2013

    After a 24hour leak test I inspected everything and it was all dry and great so i began using the computer. After heating up, this began to leak costing me a 450$ radeon 7970. =''( Lesson learned, stay far away from Phobya and always put out the extra money for Bitspower or a multi-link bridge by your waterblocks manufacture.

    So better to use barbs and tubes.

    So my test has gone wrong,

    I tested the sli connector and surprise, was leaking, so test failed.
    I wanted use barbs and tube but isn't possible cause the two cards are too close..

    Any suggestion?

    Cheers

    a shorter length of tube. I actually set the cards up for that when I built the loop, so it is possible, but I had to extend it to gain the 16x16 layout of the motherboard. If the barbs are too long, move to a low profile compression fitting set and a short chunk of tube.
