Ethereum update: PCI-E x16 to x16 Extension Cable?
Building a rig and I am faced with a unique (to me) dilemma, my motherboard’s PCIE x16 slots are too close together and block my x1 slots when a GPU is in there. My motherboard is the [MSI Z170A Gaming Titanium Edition](https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/Z170A-XPOWER-GAMING-TITANIUM-EDITION.html). I was wondering is it safe to use a wire like [this](https://www.ebay.ca/itm/PCI-E-1X-4X-8X-16X-Professional-Riser-Card-Ribbon-Extender-Extension-Cable/172769151144?hash=item2839d808a8%3Am%3AmYCzm5Fa3UnDtSy9XSd95AQ&var=471556598075) (the x16 to x16 one) to draw them away from the board and open up room for the x1 risers. I know PCI-E x1 to x16 risers have to be powered but does this one matter that it is not powered since it’s just an extension? I can’t really find one that’s powered.
Thanks for the help in advance.
