  • Charlie Cooper

    How come you haven't put a riser in the x16 slot?

  • chubber911

    What did you do with the molex connector? You make point of saying this is instructions for powered usb risers, but don't talk about molex??

  • Alex Mods

    do these drop performance/stability in any way? also this technically means you can have an external GPU....interesting

    You dont ground your riser? That could be a expensive experience...

  • Andrew Hajjiri

    Is it ok to daisy-chain the molex connectors? I don't have enough 4-pin molex connectors on my PSU for a 6 GPU setup.Edit:Nevermind. Your video is useless and you don't reply anyway.

  • Jon Doe

  • Matt

    Instructions weren't clear enough, I got my dick suck in the PSU

  • Wertun84 perevertun

    Plase help. Will I be able to boot the computer with a bootable USB drive if I insert it in this device? Motherboard model - G31M-VS.

  • Aminlv

    good video, but what about people like e don't have that many slots in our mainboard!?

  • Tudor Renegade

    Do I use the molex to sata convertors or directly plug in the pci If I have the option ???

  • Dakota House

    What motherboard is that? I've used a Asrock 970 extreme4 and it does NOT like 5 cards, much less 6. How did you manage to get that motherboard to boot with 6 cards? Also what operating system did you use to mine with all 6? Last time I checked, windows 10 doesn't support more than 5 cards.

  • xd allie

    Can you plug the cable into a usb slot

  • emad aslam

    Crossfire doesnt work by doing this

  • ahmes ceanga

    Please help, is it safe to directly plug the PSU molex into the riser card ? Is that better than using those cheap molex to sata connectors ?

  • Travel RN Hub

    a quick question please. I just made my first rig. I have 4 cards installed, but when I go to my PC, manager, I only see 3 cards connected. I checked all connections and that seems fine. Any idea what the problem could be please? Thanks in advance
