PCIE 16X riser

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just curious if the Thermaltake ($30) riser is better then the $6 risers on ebay. I'm also curious why the ebay generic ones need molex power and the TT doesn't? Since the TT P5 and P3 seem popular, I'm interested on how well do risers work under gaming loads. This is for a gaming system and no mining btw smile.gif








Edit:


Deepcool has one for ~$20.






After reading the ocn test/review (circa 2013), seems like there's minimal loss. Most importantly to me, looks like there's no significant loss when chaining two cables.

Found this but its a bit dated:

edit:

Found this one too:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1493261/pci-e-flexible-gen-3-0-riser-card-vs-pci-e-flexible-gen-2-0-riser-card


Seems like its best to stick w/ 3.0 cables.

Molex is there to stop miners frying the pci-e port when they have a whole lot of cards running off a cheap board.

Iv used the Deepcool PCI-E 3.0 one with no issues on a budget SFF build.

Thanks thumb.gif

I'll get them from Amazon so I have at least a contingency plan with their great return policy.
