That's for SLI, the bridge goes there to connect the cards together.It's there on Gigabyte's as well,they just have a sticker on it as you said.

Ah sorry about that, the first pic was missing, the second one had a blue something on the sli connector so I assumed that's what you were talking about. Sorry, my bad.

That connector is for Jakup's direct link to his SLi config. That is one of the advantages of becoming a borg as he has! ;)

Its for an SLI connector, ribbon cable. Was easier for Nvidia to test the cards in different boards, with there being a difference in spacing in pci-e slots.
