PCIE risers

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of building something similar to this

gpufarming.jpg

But the risers are so expensive, I can't find 12" risers for much below $100, which makes it far less economical than just buying multiple motherboards.

Does anyone know where I can get risers at a lower price?, or any other suggestions? smile.gif

P.S: I'm in the UK, so if you recommend a place ideally it would ship to the UK, if not I'll have to find someone to order them by proxy for me.

Very nice, a bit on the short side though, not sure if 19.2cm would be enough for a build like this.

Thanks guys, I can't really see anything higher than 19CM on ebay, but I'm guessing I can just daisy chain a couple 15's to get up to the 30cm I want. Thanks smile.gif

Not if you actually want it to work. The flexible risers are pretty bad for single anyway - 2 would probably fail completely.

Why on earth do you need such long risers anyway? Surely the only requirement is to get the cards far enough apart so you can use as many cards as you have slots plus keep them cool - 30cm is a LOT. The ones in the build you posted are only ~15cm - why do you need more?
