PCI-E x16 Riser cable question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hopefully this is the best place to post this.

I am considering ordering a case that has vertical mount for the GPU and I love the IDea of its showing off the water block. But it would seem that getting a cable is not as simple. I am seeing lots of horror stories about these riser cables. lots of complaints but not much advice. So say the Cheap ones work great, some say they dont work at all.....then i see the same thing said about the more expensive ones.

so i was hoping somebody here can help shed light on this for me, and maybe make some recommendations that wont completely break the bank.

Thanks!

I dont know how much I can help, but I can say that I have used a riser ribbon myself to make using my Tesla M2050 (GF100 based card) a little bit easier, and even at full load the card worked fine and nothing went up in flames.

Best thing to do though if you're worried about the riser overheating and burning is to find the ones where the part that attaches to the card has an extra power plug so its not drawing an excess of power through the ribbon.
