TheMeatHead1 I have the thermal take riser card from that review, but this little plastic cover on the male-pci slot side touches the adjacent Bykski gpu water block (plexi glass part). If I removed that plastic cover block thingy shown in circled area (that represents similar shape on the male pci slot side [not pictured]), would it be okay? Or would it interfere with the signal?

JackCY Or you could put the GPU on an extender to get access to ports below.

looniam several of those adapter blades look like they don't need more than the width of the slot (not whole bracket).

Spoiler!

a couple of those cheap ones (1,3,4) did ok in tests. that red bracket might be close towards the key (by the i/o bracket) but i'm sure if you loosened the screws to that gpu, you might gain 1mm gently pushing a little then tightening back down. but it does look to have the wiggle room to push a blade in that slot.

pretty sure the waterblock and plastic/cheap blue tape on the extensions can live so close/touching to each other.

I've searched for slim angled pci-e extenders and adapters, but have not been able to find any yet .

A 45 degree angled low-profile riser card of some kind would fit PERFECT....especially in this top 8x pci-e slot.

nvme SSD PCIe x4 low profile Extension Cable?

Does anyone know of a good low profile and flexible PCIe x4 extension cable that will fit in this PCIe x4 slot between my gpu's?

I ask because my bykski water block covers the outer edge portion of the slot, but it looks like a slim-flexible-low-profile riser cable of some kind could fit. I need this to fit a NVME SSD PCIe x4 adapter card.
