  1. The case kit comes with two of the GPU mount plate attachments for the riser card to attach to, mine did. Cheaper but the same cable with actual 5 star reviews. http://www.amazon.com/EZDIY-Express-Flexible-Extension-Card-25cm/dp/B01CEIEWU4/ref=pd_sim_sbs_328_6?ie=UTF8&dpID=41Ajowi-0OL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=0QN7DK6TBKQAGD0TZ2FE
  2. No need to keep RMAing good cables that work fine unless there is a stressful bend put on the cable after being mounted onto the GPU plate. I have spent hours testing with four different ribbon cables & found they will not work in a multi gpu configuration at the shorter length.
  3. It has to do with the bend radius at the end of the cables. My Taco cable works fine when there are no tight bends at either the pcie male or female end of the cable. Also the cables are not long enough to have the proper bend radius to utilize the GPU mount plate. Funny how Thermaltake went with the same cable design but shorter, doh!
  4. This ebay seller from Taiwan has some interesting test results & cable designs. http://www.ebay.com/itm/PCI-E-Express-Gen-3-0-Riser-Card-300mm-A-type-black-/121940074934?hash=item1c6431e1b6:g:GCAAAOSw9uFW9NQ~
  5. Update: Two more cables, one from Amazon & one replaced by TK. Both work unless the bend gets too tight at either end, the female or male ends of the riser cable. The riser cable should be longer like the original one that was packed taco style at 8 3/4". The replacement cables offered by Amazon or TK are not long enough if one is trying to utilize more than one GPU & provide the proper bend radius of the male cable to the MB PCIe slot or female PCIe adapter bottom end of the cable. Reason: The riser cables should be 8 3/4" or longer so it is able to provide enough distance so a
  6. I just ordered a Core P5 case from Amazon today & was wondering if it will ship with the updated PCIe 16x extender cable? Amazon only had one extra Thermaltake PCIe 16x cable left. Every single review but one says these cables do not work in the 1st PCIe slot, if these are the updated cables then put that in the title so people will see that these are updated and so indeed work. If I get a folded taco cable in my Core P5 box I am going to be disappointed.
