Help me find a GPU Riser... all I can find are mining ones... or are they same?

Same thing honestly. The important thing is the quality of the riser, not the role advertised.

And yes, the link width.

@newtekie1 @R-T-B

Thanks mates. I see now. :D I was wondering, something seemed off.

Will I notice a performance hit if I do this? Because of the extra latency because of distance traveled from that sleeve thingy to the actual slot? eeeek, I am afraid to mess with it, I just think it would look neat, and since I have the PSU shroud anyway, might as well try it.

No, you shouldn't notice a performance hit as long as you get an x16 link.

Yes, about 1-5% depending on riser quality in my experience.

3M makes the best but your wallet will cry.

No, you shouldn't notice a performance hit as long as you get an x16 link.
Latencies go up which does affect things.

Hmm, I will pass then. It's not a big deal honestly, haha, I was merely wanting to utilize the power shroud since I have one for the first time ever
