Windows 7: I need a new bridge!


07 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit / Ubuntu 10.04
 
 
I need a new bridge!

So, I was putting in new fans today and I decided to clean my case, so I removed my video cards, and the bridge from them Crossfire setup. I stepped on the bridge and it snapped!

Where can I get another one that supports the Sapphire 4770?

You would probably be best contacting the makers of the card/bridge and requesting a replacement.

Sent you PM with link it's not a gigabyte it's for an Asus but should be ok. Just measure yours the site provides the size.

You see that is what I was wondering. I usually buy all my stuff from NewEgg, but I was unsure as it didn't list the 4770 as being compatible ... but then I thought well its likely not incompatible ... after all it is just a bridge.

Just our of curiosity, if I was x16 I need two bridges yes?

I'm not following you. Why would you need 2 bridges if you only broke 1? Crossfire x16 slot to x16 slot only requires 1 correct? So just measure between the slots, the site lists it in MM so find a conversion site on the net to convert it to inches. And it should work if the measurements are right. This is your card right? Well it came with 1 bridge and from the picture it looks to me like the one I linked you to in the pm should work. From the connection to connection the bridge I linked you to is 61millimeters, which converts to 2 and 1/4 inches approximately, actualy it is 61 mm = 2.4015748 inches http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...20Video%20Card

Thats the confusing part, is that Sapphire came out with another version of the 4770 ... these is the one I have:

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100277L Radeon HD 4770 512MB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

The bridge I purchased when I got my motherboard, but I don't see it on the site anymore at all. I guess in short what I am asking is are all Crossfire Interconnect cables the same? Is so I will just get one of the flexible ones.

Thanks.

I use Nvidia and a bridge is a bridge the only difference is if your running tri SLi, or the disctance between your cards is unique to that board then you would need to contact the MB manufaturer. Most of the time they are pretty standard. Fabe

My asus mobo has a non-standard width between the pci-e x16 slots (although it does have 4 of them )

If your in the USA I could mail you the original HIS ones that came with my cards.

Not helping with the problem, just pointing out...

The Windows 7 Calculator includes a conversion function.
