just wondering...about barbs

i currently have one of these EK-FC8800 8800GTX/Ultra blocks with 1/2 barbs but i'm getting another card to go SLI. just wondered whther i connect them just using barbs or whether i need to still use pipe as i can't find a 1/2 connector

I think there is special connectors you can get, but just using an inch of pipe will be easier i think as it will be fairly flexible to put on, and its wedged in between the 2 cards so it isn't going to come off or anything

I used the barbs as usual but you can get SLi bridges for 2way and 3way.

I'm changing mine soon though as the heatload of one card before the other is causing the second card to be rather hotter. Serves me right for having a mental OC and system will be trying a parallel run next time to try to separate the heat load.
