I like the fact that this orientation lines up the 4x PCIE to 16x PCIE really nicely!
Two thoughts on the HDPLEX pcie ribbon:
1) You mentioned that you're using the P4SM2, and it's got a 4x connector on it whereas the HDPLEX ribbon comes with a 16x to 16x gold finger board by default. Can they make a 4x to 16x board for this?
2) The HDPLEX pcie ribbon has angled female connectors on the same side of the cable. The way your layout is currently, the connectors need to be on different sides of the cable OR you need to fold one side 180 degrees. But looking at @iFreilicht's review of the cable, folding it like that should be ok.
