Wouldn't entertain any riser cable if being honest. Does look good, but looks are superficial.

For anyone using AIO cooling I've found that the Deepcool 360 EX has tubes that reach. 300mm long tubes should be long enough but don't know the length on other coolers, though I'm pretty sure Corsair are less.

Some server environments use PCIe extensions and require rock solid reliability 24/7 and they do well. What we need is a good PCIe riser/extension for desktop systems that won't cost us an arm and a leg. Looks may be superficial, especially in this case, but there are situations where it's required for proper functionality. Try running racks of servers using high-end graphics solutions for computing that require proper cooling etc. I've seen them use risers/extensions and sometimes quite lengthy ones too.

Ok just did that.

Anyone else has the TT RGB fans? How did you guys connect it to the MB.
Right now the only thing i can think of is connect the fans into the RGB controller, connect those into the Commander FP – 10 Port Hub for PWM Fans then connect it into the MB.

You can connect the 5 pin connector directly on your MB smile.gif even on a 4 or 3 pin it will work smile.gif

Any idea if the front panel audio cable is shielded? Probably not but thought it was worth asking. Certainly would be a nice feature on newer cases, but you rarely see them do it

I got mine pretty quick, however it doesn't work either. older or newer version, my motherboard won't boot with it connected to pcie 3.0 slot, it works only in 2.0.
I had different motherboard before( Asus Gryphon z97) and it didn't work either, so it's not mobo related. So dissapointed and fed up with Thermaltake, my first and definitely last product from that brand. Hilarious is that you can buy that Thermaltake pcie riser on Amazon for £34!!!

Mike stopped responding to me via email, so i found my own solution. After trying 5 different risers (2 250mm original TT risers, and 3 revised designs), i would still have stupid high DPC latency issues, monitor and booting issues, and audio crackling (caused by dpc latency being high from terrible PCI-e communication. Gave up on TT and decided to try this riser. Shielding on it is much better and its much sturdier than the TT cables.

User name is liheat48 on ebay, sometimes they run out of stock. Found someone on another forum had recommended this cable, but wanted to give TT a chance to correct the issue. Since installing this cable my system is working flawlessly.

The cable issues caused me to give up on SLI 680s and i impulse bought a 1070 only to be disappointed when i still had issues lol. The liheat48 cable linked above works perfectly, though it doesnt really mount the same as the TT riser, so you will have to figure something out.

How did you install this riser cable to the case? Were you able to use the riser bar that you screw in? Or instead did you screw this straight into the shelf piece that the riser bar screws into?

hi, I can see it's available on UK's Amazon so I could give it a go. Is it working in pcie 3.0 slot every boot? no crashes in games/benchmarks?
can you check what speed gpu-z reads on that pcie riser? is it actually 3.0 x16 or x4?
thx, Pete
