Hi there,
I would like to purchase one of these amazing riser. Do you still have them in stock? I would like a x4 to x16 riser.
Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Would you be able to provide measurements for a completed board?

I am trying to figure out if / how I could fit this into my build.

Thanks, reviewed it and looks like the card is too big. I have a max of 30mm clearance so it’s out I’m afraid.

I now need to find a 20cm powered x4 to x4 riser cable. They don’t seem to exist,

The one on the left if it had a length over 20cm would be perfect.

Could you point me in the direction of where I can get them from? It’s got to be that angle (rather than 90 degree) to the cable to fit.

I think the model im after is a R22SF-WK, I think thats the model with the power.

That is a sata powered x4 to x4 riser card, the ones linked are un-powered

Thanks so much for the help, I have contacted a few sellers on there to request that specific model.

I have a noob question about input power. Do I need an ATX compliant 12V source for the riser to work properly ? Or any 19V to 12V step-down would do ?

I'm especially worried about ripple. Didn't have the time to use the riser I bought from you, but I'm starting to think about it.

I have an Asus Q87T and I'd like to use the 2pins header as voltage out to feed a step-down or a Dynamo (might be Overkill, but supplied voltage would be cleaner) to supply the riser with 12V DC.

What would you suggest ?

IT'S ABOUT TIME !!

IMHO, Dynamo or older HDPLEX 160 paired with a 19V AC Adapter is the way to go.
