Ryan,
Maybe take a black sharpie to the SLi bridge or even electrical tape?

Hey Alan, I hate to disagree, but PLEASE don't use electrical tape. In addition to looking, well, duh... it'll become a bloody sticky mess due to the heat. I'm all for electrical tape, but not there

Anyway I'm quite confident he can find one on e-bay somewhere for less than 10 bucks.

I was going to add maybe a premium vinyl tape not electrical cause you're right the glue in electrical tape is stupid tacky and transfers. Could also just dust it a couple of times with black paint after masking.

And yeah, a black SLI Bridge would look nice there. I tried looking on line to see if I could link you to one but couldn’t find them sold individually. I’m sure they’re out there though.

Peace
Ryan, I got several SLI bridges with my Maximus board they're all black with the ROG logo in white. I got several hard bridges and a flexible one, not that I've had the opportunity to use them.... yet. I would like the EVGA one that the EVGA lights up. They look good.

They're easy enough to get on ebay for about £5- £10 so I may grab one off there at some point

It's got to be worth a go but with the light's shining I think it would show up the unevenness of the colour as the Cougar fan's don't look too good close up.

Cheers chap! Hopefully your stuff sell's quick mate and you have a new card to get stuck into

Yeah I had a few different type's with my board but the only 2 way bridge was the one I'm using I got a rigid 3 way bridge and a Xfire bridge too.
That EVGA bridge looks proper nice doesn't it, A few of us posted a petition in the rog forum for a rog bridge but Asus said they wouldn't do it as it would affect cooling and something else but I can't remember what it was. I can't see how it would affect cooling to a point where it would affect anything though.

LOL - Asus prides themselves on being innovative with the looks and styling of their products so it's hard to believe they can't come up with something like that of EVGA.

There may not be a huge market for what EVGA put out, that might be a concern. However, I guarantee if that bridge takes off, ASUS will find a way to overcome those "cooling concerns" Not only that, they'll reinvent it
