PCI-E Riser Card, 1 to 4 PCI-E Riser Extender for Bitcoin

3D Printed Housing for External Vive Wireless Card

Sorry I am not providing details as I want to get this info out quickly. I will respond with info if anyone shows interest, though I might be slow.
I'm not sure if anyone remembers the talk about extending the range of their Vive wireless setups. Basically, you can get a PCIe extender (built for bitcoin mining rigs I believe), and use USB 3 to move your Vive Wireless WiGig card 35 ft (CORRECTION: 20ft) to your computer. I have found that it works great for me.
But you end up with this exposed computer board just sitting there in your room with nothing to keep the board from sliding out of the extender socket and nothing to protect the board while also allowing cooling.
I took enough measurements off of the board to create a 3d model of it that captures the design information needed to create an enclosure.
I also created a 3d printable enclosure that is "good enough".
I haven't posted it because "an artist's work is never done", but if I don't post what I have, I might never post it.
So please let me know if anyone is interested in a model of the card and enclosure. Note that the enclosure is specific to the dimensions of the extender I bought, so minor tweaks might be required if you have a different extender.
Here is a picture of the final result (yes I used tape for my prototype that I never developed further)
I designed it to be modular (see the joiners I left open in the picture, in case a part of the print fails or needs fixing) and also it does not require supports. (Shakes fist at designs that require supports!)

Answers:
Here are the exact two products I bought from Amazon. No guarantees. At the time people were looking into extending the wire from the card to antenna, but my first try didn't work.
Beware, the part that you plug into your pci slot can, incredibly, be put in backwards and still fit. Also there is nothing keeping the extender in the slot.

PCI-e to USB Card Passthrough Suggestions

My POS motherboard only has ONE usb controller, which means I'm unable to pass it through to my Windows gaming VM. I need to do this as my Xbox wireless adapter is really wonky with just USB passthrough, and the only way to get around this is to passthrough an entire USB controller. Pretty sure this is a KVM issue as I've never had any issues passing through USB devices on ESXi.
I have an mATX build with a huge graphics card, so my PCIe x2 slots are blocked off, but I managed to use one of those bitcoin mining rig extender cables to "breakout" the slot. My inelegant plan is to just get a PCIE to USB card and mount it externally.
Anyone have any suggestions for a good card that works with unRAID? I see a lot of cheap options on eBay/Amazon. Used server grade cards would be ideal.
I'm even open to alternate suggestions. Things I've thought about:

Need some troubleshooting help! Riser 008s and R3c

This project isn't for gpu mining but I know these risers are mainly used for this purpose so I thought I might get some good feedback here. My project is that I have an itx board with a single x16 pcie slot. It also has 3 m.2 pcie gen3 x4 slots. I have one free m.2 slot and wanted to convert that to x16 via riser. I wanted a 2nd low power silent gpu added to the rig. I went with the fanless msi 1030. It has a max draw of ~30w so I figured sata power would be safe. I purchased this and this to test with. Neither work!! So it must be something on my end?? The first part is fairly standard, the difference being I'm going to a m.2 slot where most of you are coming from x1 or x4. "In theory" this should just work! I'll start with the 2nd part since it's very simple: m.2 connector -> x16 socket + sata power. I hooked this up, seated the gpu and booted up. Nothing. Not even bios. I pulled the gpu and booted. Bios worked and booted up (running a 1080ti direct on the board). Installed the gpu back and nothing. I bought the 1030 used so I pulled the 1080ti and installed the 1030 direct to the mb. Works! So then I thought maybe the riser is bad or that sata power is insufficient seeing that most gpus would also have 6+8pin direct whereas mine has no external power. So I swapped risers out. This time the 008s with additional power connectors. Exact same thing. First I powered via pci only. Then sata+pci. And finally sata+pci+molex. In all situations the red led lit up. In all situations if I do not have the gpu plugged in it boots up fine. The strange thing is I never get into bios. No speaker or post lcd on this board so my troubleshooting is limited. And to note I test both gpu hdmi ports just to make sure one vs the other was set to primary. I got lazy and just looked at my mouse to light up to see if it booted. The mouse stayed dark, implying it never posted. Any help would be greatly appreciated! solved I have two m.2. ports which are pcie only. I have 1 port that is pcie/sata. the suggestion by u/sqrtlurface was to use the pcie/sata port and now the 1030 is being recognized in both linux and windows.

Anyone have any experience with m.2 to x16 risers?

So first off, I'm a little disappointed that there aren't any april fools jokes here.....I have just come from homelab and well the top 15 posts are pictures of labs (the dog). perhaps a little excessive. lol.
I'm getting into virtualization (I'm testing clear linux + kvm) and have bought parts to add a second gpu to my itx build. itx builds for the most part only come with a single x16 slot. That is occupied by a 1080ti. This will be for passthru use. So from my learning it would be beneficial for me to have a 2nd gpu. The only expansion I have now is m.2. They are pcie gen 3 x4 based slots. Technically I should be able to convert to a x16 sized slot but run at x4 speed. For my use (2d only) this should be fine. Talking about this is making me research my card being compatible with x4. I believe all x16 cards are backwards compatible by design, but double checking. I am testing this and this so far without success. This application is primarily used in the crypto mining world so I asked for troubleshooting help there but was curious if any attempts here were made. p.s. my build is skylake-x which disappointingly doesn't come with igp and that would have solved my 2nd gpu issue. any itx owners with no igpu or need a 2nd/3rd gpu can try buying the above parts, but make sure you have a sata/pcie m.2 slot. for my system m.2 pcie only did NOT work properly.

A heads up to those wanting to use PCIe splitters/switches.

Well, after 129 miner restarts in SMOS I've finally gotten my 8 GPU rig mining stable for 16 hours straight. I'm using Supermicro boards in my operation to have IPMI and limit having to move rigs or monitors around to troubleshoot. Once the kinks are worked out its great! Anyways my board only has 7 PCIe slots so I've been experimenting with splitters to get me to 8 cards. Its been a long road. I started with a couple of those x1 into 4 USB cards which kinda worked if I was running less than 6 total GPUs and no more than 2 cards on each splitter. They are funky. I could run 4 on the board and 2 on the splitter for days but if I added 2 more to the board I had constant crashes. I spent an immense amount of time messing with the PCI gen, MCFG setting (base address for PCI devices) with mixed results. Finally as I gave up yesterday and put 2 cards back in another rig my x16 to 8 USB splitter finally arrived! I threw it in and hooked up 6 GPUs to it and I'll be damned it ran for 30 minutes no problem. I said screw it and grabbed 2 more cards again and had some rejected shares. Switched the slot back to PCI Gen2 and what do you know. Haven't had to reboot yet.
Obviously its known your mileage will vary using splitters like this. It won't magically make a 20 year old motherboard support more cards. But if you have a modern-ish board that doesn't have enough slots it may be the ticket. I know people have had luck with those 4 GPU splitters I'm still not sure why they were so unstable for me but hey this works. Only needing one x16 slot to run cards I may just opt for a dual CPU board and do some CPU mining as well if a new CPU only algorithm triumphs over Cryptonight.

Need some m.2 to x16 pcie riser help

I finally made my way over to egpu and egpu.io. Read the DIY 101 and some of the initial tutorials over on io. I sort of risk a cross post because I also posted similar questions over on virtualization and gpumining. I started over on mining because they deal with lots of risers but in particular x1/x4 to x16. Virtualization because this is what I'm trying to accomplish and those of us who have itx boards all need a 2nd/3rd gpu. Thus far my testing hasn't gotten me anywhere so I'm reaching out for additional feedback. Summary I have an itx case/board running skylake-x (no igp). I need to install a 2nd gpu (4k 60fps/hz in 2d and fanless/silent were my reqs - I picked up a msi 1030). I have (3) m.2 pcie gen 3 x4 slots, one of which is dual sata/pcie. I picked up this and this to test with. Neither work. It appears that it's not even passing POST - no bios screen. After reading egpu.io and the diy 101 here my hunch is that I'm running into a bios whitelist issue. What do you think? Steps taken: 1. tried both parts, the one part only takes power via sata (the card tops off at 34w and sata is capable of 54w) and the other i powered via 6pin pcie. with a card inserted it does not even hit bios. with the card unplugged i boot fine. 2. verified that the 1030 operates fine by plugging into the single x16 slot direct on the board. verified that it is not conflicting with my 1080ti (direct on mb) by unplugging the ti and only running 1030 via riser. 3. verified that its not some weird sata/pcie incompatibility by disabling sata in the chipset section of bios. next steps 1. per a suggestion in the other post, I will try the dual use sata/pcie m.2 slot. I don't think the m.2 key would be sata, but worth a shot. 2. per egpu.io i will try to hot plug via the usb cable after boot. and see if the gpu will auto detect. personally i think this is what will do the trick. however long term this will not work because for my project the gpu is inside the case. for this reddit this is fine because most/all of you are running external and a disconnect is easy. 3. ironically one of the parts was on the recommended parts list over on io, so you would think i'm good to go. which really makes me think about the bios whitelisting issue. other than trying an amd card out (which won't meet my reqs longterm) i'm not sure how to fix/test the bios issue. I guess #2 will test it. Ideas?? solved I have two m.2. ports which are pcie only. I have 1 port that is pcie/sata. the suggestion by u/sqrtlurface was to use the pcie/sata port and now the 1030 is being recognized in both linux and windows.

certain PCI-E slots unstable after reboot without pulling the plug, super weird, anyone been in a similar situation?

this is super weird, and took a long time to figure out (after first thinking it was everything else, risers, PSU, GPU, motherboard, ..)
on this picture, the pci-e slots marked in green are always stable. the ones marked with red, are stable if the electricity was pulled prior to reboot, but if the electricity was not pulled out prior to reboot, then they have about a 50% chance of being stable/unstable. at first i thought it was a bad bios overclock, so i reverted to stock bios, then i replaced the risers, then i thought it was a bad PSU, replaced it, then maybe a bad motherboard, so i replaced it. but it is the exact same situation with the brand new motherboard/PSU/riser. the PSUs are super-high-end, 2x Corsair AX1600i, Corsair's flagship (best) 1600W 80+ Titanium PSUs. the motherboard is Asus B250 Mining Expert, updated to firmware version 1205. the risers are Dayspirit 009S (and i'm not using the sata->pci-e converters to power the riser, i'm using these pci-e splitter cables instead, but also tried with a different 008S riser model from a different manufacturer, didn't help), the GPUs are 10x different RX580's (2x Aorus RX580, 5x Asus Dual RX580 OC, 1x Asus ROG Strix RX580, 1x PowerColor Red Devil RX580, 1x Maxsun RX580, all 8GB GRAM models),
anyone experienced anything like this? any idea what's happening?

Which motherboards can support 12+ cards with a 4 way PCIe splitter?

I have tried these on an ASUS Prime Z270-A motherboard and have gotten 2 of them to work (therefore theoretically increasing the amount of GPUs I can plug in to 13 without even using the M.2 slots. Does anyone know of any other motherboards where 12+ cards would be able to be supported without any kind of bandwidth,etc issues, by using 2 of these splitters? I am kind of afraid to buy another motherboard just to have it not work.
I guess to get 12 GPUs on one motherboard really only requires 6 PCIe slots as long as 2 of them are 1X (I noticed these splitters don't work on 16X slots.) Any suggestions that aren't $150+ and almost always out of stock? :)
Thanks in advance.

Addressing some basic mining gear questions

Hi, I'm Cablesaurus. As Reddit has plugged into the Bitcoin world, many here may be wrestling with the complications of securely mounting accumulating graphics cards and mining rig gear; getting all cards to recognize; or how to utilize all possible motherboard slots for Bitcoin purposes to save hardware costs
A few things new miners should be aware of:
* PCI Express extenders can be used to greatly increase airflow between your cards * Mounting solutions are available for those strugging to securely mount cards * You can use x1 PCIe slots to power any mining card just as fast as when plugged directly into an x16 slot. Adapters are available for the curious. * PCI to PCI express slot adapters are available for those running out of slots. A PCI slot can be converted to run a mining card at full speed from an extender. 
Some of these solutions can save the miner a large wad of cash in startup hardware costs.
To find more basic information, check out the Bitcoin forums or visit our site @ www.Cablesaurus.com
I'll be glad to help answer any questions Reddit has about the use of such solutions, or just general questions for me! - Feel free to post!
Warm regards, Cablesaurus

Can I use AC to molex converters to power USB risers?

I have an unusual case that I haven't seen in any subreddit yet (yes, I searched). I have access to a number of servers that offer 4-6 PCIe slots each, but are limited to 25W output per slot. If I understand right, that's not enough to power the new 750Ti series. However, a powered USB riser should take care of that.
If you have any experience with PowerEdge servers, you've probably noticed a distinct lack of molex or SATA power connectors. So, my question - could I use something like this to supply the power I need? The 750's would be in a typical open air rig within 3 feet of the server, with the adapters connected to a surge strip. According to this calculator the dual adapter I linked can supply 220 watts. Is that accurate? Are the pinouts correct? I notice with some of the other AC to molex adapters, there are specific notes that 5V is missing or that pin 2 is not grounded (unfortunately I lost that link) making it "unsuitable for video cards."
TL;DR - Can I use this to safely power 750Ti's connected to these? If so, how many per adapter?
Bonus question - could such an adapter be used to power AMD cards with the proper molex-to-PEG accessory cables? I'm assuming you'd need 2 adapters per card, but that'd still be easiecheaper than a dual PSU setup.

Back Story- I saw goodatit 's post on /battlestations early last year and decided to make my own rendition. A different configuration and thicker plastic etc. The issue I am having is I do not know if I should use powered or nonpowered PCIE Risers for the 2 GPU's and audio card. Any thoughts? The distance between the Mobo and the GPUS is about 10 inches, 7 inches straight-line. I've spent enough money on this to by both, but frying one of the GPU's/Mobo would be crappy.
If I had to put several risers in a row, could i have one powered and the rest unpowered?

When I connect the powered riser to my system, plug in the molex to its receiving end and attach my graphics card, the system will not even boot. I have tried with the riser attached and powered but with no graphics card in it and it has launched.
Do note that I had to bend the riser for the card to fit and I believe there were some 90 degree bends (the ribbon was basically folded on top of itself to fit below the card). I was told that this was OK, but I get the feeling that if the riser is shot that's the issue, looking at the Amazon reviews.
I have identified that it is likely the riser; I've tried with another PSU and the system has booted and it has also booted without the riser at all. The alternative to the riser being shot is that my system cannot provide enough power, but I don't think that's the case, although my PSU could have more wattage for this build.
List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.
I've tried it without powering and that's about it.
Post relevant photos of build/parts here.
No photos, sorry.
Provide any additional details you wish below.
If the riser is indeed shot, does anyone know of trustworthy risers to buy that are either short (at least shorter than this one) or bendable (if my bending it destroyed it)? LiHeat seems like a good place to buy from, but they unfortunately are in Asia.
EDIT: Oops I'm an idiot; I forgot to plug in a speaker to see if there were beep codes. Does this speaker need to be hooked up directly to my motherboard or will plugging in one through the 3.5mm jack work too? I don't have any speakers to hook up directly to my motherboard I'm pretty sure. Does my board perhaps come with a speaker (I can't seem to find one in any pictures and I'm away from it right now so I can't inspect it in person)?

[Discussion] Thinking of buying PCIe x1 to x16 Powered Extender so I can keep my sound card I have

I am upgrading to SLI soon. I have an ATX mobo with 4 PCIe x16 slots, with the sound card being on the 4th one. The cards I will be getting will have to take the first and third slots because they are 2.5 PCIe width video cards. It is looking like my sound card will have to be moved/taken out of my build
I have had this sound card for awhile and would like to keep it, so I was thinking of getting one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Powered-Extender-Litecoin-Bitcoin-Mining/dp/B00HZ0M9F2/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top and installing it somewhere else in my case. (I have a big case)
Has anyone used this type of extender? Since it's going through USB will my sound card be limited (even though sound isn't very heavy on bandwidth)? Any recommendations?

Assembling wishlist for rig parts.

I've decided to start a rack of dedicated bitcoin miners and I am planning the parts right now, but I have a few questions.
Q1. 5770 Single Slot vs 5830?
Q2. Is overclock worth it in the long term (since the warranty is no longer valid)?
Q3: Anyone have a decent Mobo link? I'm trying to figure out what mobo would be good for a 4U case and a power supply to go with it to match the number of PCI-E slots maxed out.
Old Rig Specs:
Now for logistics: I own a 5770 (old one) and it only gets 175 MHash, so the spreadsheet is wrong on that account. It would seem 5830 would be my best bet if they're still stocking it next month. Although the single slot 5770 would be nice too.
Table time. Note I am using 175 MHash for $/MHash calculation.

Some things to note:
I want to find the best solution to the card per mobo with a decent power supply. I also want to add joule rating cost for the components on the table.

PCIe powered riser cables with USB 3.0 - thoughts?

I've spent the last few days configuring a Litecoin rig, and I used PCIe 1x 16 powered risers. After finding out mine are too short, I looked and found a number of longer risers on eBay, except with USB 3.0. Do you think there is a downside to using the USB 3.0 cable rather than the typical extension cable? I'm thinking power (USB 3.0 is support to carry 1A @ 5V - I know these are powered but does it make a difference?) Thanks
