I started building my new PC and realized the Kingping has its NVlink 1 inche below the other 3090.
 
I don't see any other solution then "elevating" the 3090 Kinping to match the NVLINK.
 
Does anyone know if Flexible NVlink exists ?
 
My Case is : 
Thermaltake AH T600 Helicopter  
And Motherboard ASUS Dark Hero X570
 
I trying the mount both GPU vertically with risers LINKUP pcie 4.0
 
Thank you

    "elevating" the 3090 Kinping to match the NVLINK. Thats the only way you can do it. I ran a Kingpin with FTW3 ultra with 600 mm riser cables outside case outside case had to elevate Kingpin.

    Flexible bridges don't exist as far as I know.  This information is common knowledge (that they're not lined up on those two cards), this was showcased that most NVLink connectors on different SKUs from the same vendor are not lined up on the first Gamers Nexus SLi 3090 video when they tried to do a FTW3 & something else.
     
    It's been a thing that it's recommended to have exact matching cards for a while now (but not required previously), now it's actually required, if you don't want to use riser cables - yet another step I think NVidia took to try & actually kill SLi.

    Any idea how I could elevate the GPU on a vertical mount ? Like an accessory of some sort ?

    i certainly like the end result, it wasnt a technical solution to the problem, but more of a kobayashi maru maneuver. looks very impressive, two cards look perfect any for sli.
