ASUS' ROG Strix PCI-E Riser cables sound amazing

ASUS says that their cable is "foldable", which could make it more reliable than competing solutions.

we have a mountain of broken riser cables to prove how tricksy these fancy graphics card mounts can be

Pix or it didn't happen!


After having watched many of OC3D videos I remember Tom always saying to shape an S-curve if you have to not break it.

I can imagine a video with pretty cool tests vor this :P The price tag will be interesting as well...

Why do you think Tom always warns people to be careful? While the testing you're suggesting sounds fun, it would be hard to convince anyone to give us samples when the aim of the game is to see which ones beak fastest of easiest.

If only there was a way for reviewers to get stock of stuff the marketing departments don't want them testing out of fear of a bad review. Some kind of way they could review those products getting the exact same service as a consumer.....
