ASRock 870 Extreme 3 - Using 4 X1 to X16 Powered Risers?

post #1 of 3

Hey there, I'm wondering if the aforementioned motherboard can use 4 cards with X1 risers, since I'm not entirely sure if it'll work or not. The purpose of this is for mining coins.

If it fits it will work.

You might want to use powered risers though, since the mobo is sort of cheap and you don't want your motherboard connector to brown out or catch on fire.

I used to have a Geforce 6200LE and a cheap ASUS mobo. The mobo connector browned out after 4 month of use, the card stopped working after a year. The card was powered entirely from an AGP8X slot.
