    Well EVGA recently brought out their new SLI bridges myself and a few others all agreed they was so much better than the standard bridge as you can see in the pic below

    Even though the EVGA bit only would light up for GTX 770 upwards :grr: but still an improvement on the standard one's.

    Now got me thinking

    So I thought WHY I want mine to light up too I mean how hard can it be must have some led's in there I thought, So I bought another one Damn import and handling charges :grr: just in case I rendered it useless

    Anyway I started by looking on the back and noticed 4 screws so with my trusty scissors I unscrewed them lol

    Right so with the cover removed I saw that the LED's was part of the PCB not much chance of getting them to work then, I need a simpler way.

    So having a look at the inside of the cover there was a black plastic piece either side of the clear Perspex piece with the EVGA, I removed the lower piece and put a groove in the bottom of the cover with the old dremmel.

    Next thing was to sort through my bits of junk and found a short LED strip so I soldered some cable on sleeved it and attached the other end to a molex connector
