    Default 3 way SLi Bridge For a Z77 Extreme6 Motherboard How do I get one?

    I have a ASRock Z77 Extreme6 Motherboard with 32 gig 1600 vengence memory , an intel 3770K processor 2 Palit GeForce GTX570 Sonic Platinum Cards 2 way SLi , I just got another Palit GTX570 sonic Platinum for the board But I did not get a 3 way bridge in the Kit . The board is capable of 3 way SLi having the third PCI-E slot #5 The bridge is an offset type for the third card , looks very much like any other ASRock 3 way configuration using a 3 way bridge . How do you get a 3 way bridge for the Z77 Extreme6

    I think that you will need to use three flexible SLI bridge connectors.

    Be sure to check the required length for each bridge connector.

    Check eBay and Amazon.

    That looks like the AMD / ATi crossfire , However I have been scouting on NewEgg on all upper money ASRock Motherboards and a lot of them use the 3 way with that very familiar offset between slot 4 and 5 where slot 2 is a wider set toi slot 4 , the x79 extreme 6 the x99 extreme 6 and the same configuration uses the 3 way .it says 3.0 16 mine has 2 and 1 3.0 and 1 2.0 but all 3 vid cards are v 2.0 That is asily set in bios to auto or manually set to gen 2 All I need to do is measure from slot to slot to slot (Groove) and see if its a match to tech , if I can get tem to take the time I will be golden.. This kind of persistance comes from being an auto tech 3 months short of 5 decades LOL Retired a master tech 12 makes 37 models plus heavy equipment , tractor trailer etc etc might get lucky who klnows

    It looks like a 3-way 2S1S SLI Bridge will work with your motherboard.

    Several other motherboard brands also use the 2S1S SLI bridge.

    ASRock might be able to sell you one.

    You're welcome.

    The specifications for your Z77 Extreme6 does not say anything about 3-way SLI support.

    Several higher end ASRock motherboard models state that they support 3-way SLI, but some of their pci-e layouts will not work with the 2S1S SLI Bridge.

    The specifications page for the X79 Extreme6 includes:
    • accessories - 1 x ASRock 3-Way SLI-2S1S Bridge Card
    and it has a similar pci-e slot layout.

    Let us know how your 3-way SLI works out.
