Is my rig/order missing anything?

AFAIK there are no ribbon risers (like the ones of Thermaltake) with additional power inputs.

With 7x GPUs you need 525W on your PCI-Bus, i´m not sure if the mainboard will provide so much power.
It should be capable of doing so, if the vendor states support for 7 GPUs without further notice. There are also additional power connectors on the Mainboard to deal with these kinds of load. Nevertheless I dont have personal experience with such a 7 GPU configuration, but only one with 4 GPUs.

Unfortunately not, but there should be no or at most insignificant differences between x1 and x8 in terms of benchmarking or brute-forcing. The maximum bandwidth of PCIe 3.0 x1 (a bit less than 1 GB/s) will become a bottleneck though, when you run attacks  that do candidate generation purely on the CPU (like Dictionary or Stdin).

TBF, my knowledge about USB-based x1 risers is purely theoretical, acquired by reading the forum here and the guide by unix ninja. My opinion about those is pretty much like: They can work, but have this bottle neck drawback, might cause compatibility issues or might be of inferior quality and set your rig on fire :p
