They are a bit important, connecting $100s or dollars of GPU to the mobo... maybe someone has some experience with either type? The one just has 2 wires to the plug, plus a capacitor, which may or may not make any difference at all.

The $10 one. It has a capacity and a grounding wire. The other one looks like they cheaped out when making it.

Kind of what I figured, but I also realize these are both coming from China, probably even the same shop, so underlying build quality is probably the same. Still if the cap and ground wire matter, its worth it to pay little extra.

I don't see why not. I did read one interesting thing today about risers though, supposedly you may have to short 2 pins on a 1x plug to make the OS know a GPU is present in the slot. Here's that guide.

I got my risers from here http://www.cryptocables.com/product-category/cables/

Shipped an hour after I ordered. Shipped first class for $1.09

He means capacitor I think, and it stores just a bit of power for the rise in case it needs it, which is a nice feature. (from what I understand)

This is interesting. An anti-cheating game client from ESEA had a bitcoin miner hidden inside of it.

Thanks for clearing that up! I thought that was what he meant but wasn't sure.

 

Would you say running, say 6 R9 290s off a single mobo (990FX UD3) be a bad idea? I was hoping to set up 3 of them as a test, and if it gives the expected returns buy another 3, and maybe even build another 6-GPU system to mine 24/7, but if getting very cheap mobos and cpus to run lots of PC's is better I could do that instead.

 

Only disadvantage I can see is having to trick one power supply into turning on, which may involve some ghetto wiring (unless anyone has a better method).

Would updating to cgminer 3.7 be better than what i am getting with 3.4?
