GPU Extender
#1
I got 4 290x and this motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...-_-Product

I had an issue though where I couldn't install more than 2 cards without having the GPU fans stop working.

Do you know if GPU extenders are a good idea if the purpose is passwords cracking? and if so what do you guys recommend?

Thanks,

If you mean risers, they work fine.
I only tested the USB3 based ones though

Thanks!

I don't really know what they called, but from the pics I saw they look the same to me.

I'm thinking of something that allows a GPU to set outside of the motherboard (and case).

Is there any risers that you recommend?

these seem to be pretty reliable: http://www.amazon.com/Powered-Extender-L...B00HZ0M9F2

That's what i use more or less. I can't tell the difference with a card in the box and a card outside, except the temperature Smile
