Question NVLink Bridge Question

Hello guys,

So I want to build a new setup on a MAXIMUS XII FORMULA with 2 RTX on it but I'm having some doubts concerning the NVLINK Bridge. So basically the GPU's will be put on these slots (check the imgur link).

And my question is: for this config, should I buy a 3-slot or a 4-slot NVLINK Bridge? Because the Nvidia guide isn't so clear for me.

Thank you!

That looks like a 4-slot: another pcie slot could've gone in the space between the top x16 and the short x1.
What kind of cards are you planning to NVLink? I would advise against beefy, axial fan cooled ones.

RTX 2080 Ti are the cards I want to use. And about cooling, I will go full EKWB custom cooling.
