ThermalMike Posted May 12, 2016 Author Report Share Posted May 12, 2016 I have two questions about these new riser cables. 1) What issues would I be seeing with the originals? I received my case in November 2015 and I think I got the old cables (folded taco style). I experience display driver crashes maybe once a day, but the card works normally otherwise. Could this be the cable or can I blame Windows 10 safely? 2) I want to add a 2nd card onto the riser / whatever it's called where the cards are facing outwards towards me, so I'll need another cable and another one of those metal attachments that connects the cable to the horizontal expansion slots. If I buy one of the new cables, will it come with the metal piece? Looking at the package it looks to be just the cable. Bonus 3rd question: Amazon is out of stock. What gives? (also, $30? wow) Thanks, TT staff! Hi RichardMNixon, For a small % of users, especially with higher end GPUs people have been reporting initilization issues at boot (Takes longer to see screen) or other intermittent issues once in windows or in game. For the quantity that has been released of the Core P5, the issues reported have been under 3% here in the USA. Display driver crashes could be a lot of things, one easy way to check is to connect the card directly into the motherboard and see if the issue continues. If that is not possible, (totally understand if you run liquid cooling like me), see my details below and email me about a replacement cable: Email: email@example.com Subject: Core P5 Riser Cable Replacement What I need: 1.
