Auros 1080ti SLI with NZXT G12 Bracket

Hello everyone I have 2 Auros 1080ti video cards and I was going to purchase 2 NZXT G12 brackets as well as 2 NZXT Kraken X42 AIO watercoolers also was going to use the Auros High Bandwith SLI bridge (2 slot spacing). I have been searching all online for about a week now and I am unsure if I can configure Sli with them. Does anyone know if this SLI setup would be able to work? or would the G12 bracket be to large for it to work with SLI? I would really appreciate any feedback from anyone familiar with the G12 bracket. Thank you.

Two slot as in there’s no space between the cards? Every conpany has their own description for that and I didn’t look up there’s.

I had the very same issue last week. I have two MSI 1080Ti's Gaming in SLI with only 2 slots between them. Had to cool down the top card as it was going crazy hot in SLI and got a G12 bracket and x42 AIO for it. The G12 bracket itself doesn't actually make the card any wider than the stock fans (I'd say up to 2.5 slots wide which is still fine for a 2 slot spacing between the cards). However, the x42 has quite a big pump which will take up all 3 slots and touch your lower GPU. It's not a big deal but I'd try another AIO with a shorter pump (perhaps Corsair's alternatives) so that the pump doesn't come in contact with the bottom card. Also, if you get two x42s, they will have each a 140mm fan radiator which is quite big so I'd take that into consideration too. I'd probably rather go with a 120mm fan since it would have a smaller radiator which can fit into most cases, and in particular in the back of the case as exhaust with the tubing in the bottom (which would be my preference rather than hooking it up on the top or front panels).
