nvme SSD PCIe x4 low profile Extension Cable?
 
1 Attachment(s)
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.

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

Then you have to search for angled ones from some of the companies that do make raisers at all.
If all fails buy a cheap one and make it angled.

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

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


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. :thumb:

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

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?
