Glad to hear
... except I'm running three of them in SLI which will saturate the PCIe bus a LOT more
. Thanks for the input though as always

I got THIS ADAPTER CARD

Not a biggie for me but that could be an issue for some other people.
SUPRISE!! After I shorted pins A1 and B17 on the PCIe slot on the motherboard the PCIe adapter worked!!!!! saweeet!
I tested the pins to see if they were shorted on the adapter itself and they ohmed out... wha? yeah... still didn't work until I shorted them on the board with a wire. Go figure. I'm sure that I will have to do the same on the SR-2 (testing it on my x58 classy). Good news for those interested in the awesome riser
get you some
is a link to a guy that has them in the States
