Looking for GPU Riser

I am looking for a riser for a Fractal Design Define S2 (R6 components are also compatible). I was going to get the Fractal VRC-25 riser but they are out of stock everywhere. Any other reccomendations?

I'll save you a lot of internet review crawling and hassle:

Thermaltake's flexible PCIE riser cables in the desired length of your choice. (30cm, 60cm, ...)

Look no further

The TT Riser is 8 GB/s wouldn't that create a bottle neck as the PCIe x16 3.0 spec is ~16 GB/s? Also how would I even go about mounting it as it is not a right angle riser?

No, TT Premium riser cables are not a bottleneck for that spec at all. And since they are flexible they are compatible with any mounting solution, even diagonal

What about EZDIY? I found this cable that can mount to the case's PSU shroud: https://www.amazon.com/EZDIY-FAB-Exp...gateway&sr=8-1

To add to my last post the ThermalTake riser probably won't fit as the GPU mounts close to the PSU shroud. The riser would probably need to be a right angle riser. Also saw the PhanTeks 220mm riser might fit. Still haven't made a decision and not sure of the right choice. This is the last part I need to kick of my water cooling build.
