Can anyone comment on how "good" these risers are? I'll be ordering a lot more than I need in case some don't work, but if anyone is using these reliably that'd be good to know.
I don't think there is any point in 16x to 16x risers, the cards need very little bandwidth, so 1x are preferable, as you can use them in either a 1x or 16x slot.
I think these are about the same ones sold everywhere, just cheap Chinese made ones, most of them probably work just fine, but you should probably look over each one before use for any glaring issues. I bought some of these
But the wait time is like 20 days to get here, so that sucks. These ones seemed a little better than what I've seen for the common powered risers. The ones I ordered have power and ground, as well as a capacitor. I'll update when I get them if they are good build quality or what. Actually I plan to do a whole build log for my new miner once I have everything.
It's going to be musical power supplies over here, that's for sure.. Edited by Faster_is_better - 12/11/13 at 9:45am
