After hours testing it out and cutting between crosssoldering I resolved the shorts.
Don't buy unless you can resolder it.
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.
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.
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.....
I'd avoid at all costs.

A little shorter than I expected, not sure if shorter than advertised.
Cut it into a PCI-E 4x due to mobo space issues, still functioned. Probably still works as 16x.
