This bad boy looked great until I peeled back the tape revealing literally the worst soldering of all time.

After hours testing it out and cutting between crosssoldering I resolved the shorts.

Don't buy unless you can resolder it.

I ordered 2 of these. 2 pins broke on the first one and the trace on the pcb of the second one came off. I was hoping these would allow me to move a video card. Instead it almost damaged my system

Dont know where to start;

The soldering job is a disaster, I was running 6 on my machine with GPU's and had endless problems.

And they are ALL oxidizing on their soldering contacts, its practically going to fall apart on its own.

I wouldn't touch these with a 50 foot barge pole again.

Not the best extension cable. Badly constructed, poor soldering on all connections. It shorted out when tried with my graphics card.
I should have gotten one that was made on a PCB, so grounding all around it would keep EMI/RFI interference low.

Micro SATA Cables is a very nice company to purchase from.
They refunded the purchase price and sent a better one to me...free of any additional charges.

This cable is rather stiff and it prevents bending in tight areas. If you want to use the PCIe lane anywhere closer than the full length of the cable you will run into problems trying to fold the cable and make it stay where you need it.

GPU worked fine up until this riser came into my home. I have multiple systems which the card was used in. It was a great 5970.

I plugged this into a PCI-E x16 slot and attached the GPU. It was an open case so I could see the internals of the system. Upon pressing the power button to turn on the machine, a flame shot out of the riser where the GPU connects to it followed by that terrifying odor of melting copper and shorting electronics.

Instantly I reached to cut the power, but it was too late, the damage had already been done.

The card now has a large open copper spot where the circuit etching used to be and still reeks of that haunting electrical fire smell. I am horrified.

Please for the sake of your components, do not buy this riser. Pay a little extra and get something worth quality.... or at least test it out with a lower quality GPU to see if it lights on fire or not.

Its possible that 5970, which is 2 gpus in one card, could have been too large a load for such a cheap piece of junk. Maybe a smaller card with less load would not start on fire. Still.....

Product works as expected. I have 4 of these in my crypto mining rig and haven't had any issues with them whatsoever. All cards get detected properly, power properly, and perform properly. No complaints, I'll be back for more soon.

Upon reading reviews, i opted to check the pins before plugging this into my motherboard. One pin was lifted, not even making contact with the card. Another pin was touching two contacts thus shorting it out. I would have hated to see what would have happened if I plugged in my $600 R9 290x into my $200 motherboard with this cheap riser.

I'd avoid at all costs.
