Which are correct:

1-I have to be so close to it that I can see all the details.

2-I have to be so close to it I can see all the details.

3-I have to be that close to it that I can see all the details.
4-I have to be that close to it I can see all the details.

5-I have to be that close to it where I can see all the details.

Gratefully,
Navi.

In my opinion, 1 and 2 are correct and have the same meaning.

I can accept 3, although it sounds awkward have the word "that" twice in the sentence.

I cannot accept 4 or 5.
