Whats the performance hit when using that pci-e riser ?

I have around 5-10% hit using my Thermaltake premium riser 200mm...

I didn't realise there was a performance loss when using riser.

If there is I'm not seeing it, I'm using the Coolermaster Vertical GPU Kit.

The performance loss comes from the card being too close to the side panel and therefore heat gets trapped and therefore lowers clocks.

If you get it further away from the side panel it'll be fine

Ahh, so you are saying that it is Nvidia boosting their GPU less due to decreased airflow and higher temps?

That is a big problem for cases with native vertical mounts. very close to windows, especially for cards that are more than two slots thick.

I'm surprised you didn't know this? That's why we had those vertical GPU solutions come out during Computex earlier this year. It was to avoid the thermal issue

I thought it was meant that there's a decrease in performance as a result of the riser cable, not the space restrictions.

I was clarifying, in your earlier post, I thought you were referring to losses from the cable itself and was thinking that 5-10% was super high for what should be a premium cable. 1ish % should be as high as it gets outside of cheapo risers.

My post started with "Ahh", as in "Ahh, now the 5-10% now makes sense" kinda way. Or at least that was how it went down in my head. Lol.

At least the next person on this thread will know exactly where the performance loss comes from. A good PCIe riser cable has a negligible performance impact, nobody noticed a 1% difference.
