    Physx performance using a dedicated Physx card @ x16 and then @ x1?

    I say this because i just learned that cutting the end of PCI-E 1x slots allows the placement of any GFX card in it.

    BTW, you can force a any GFX card to work on x1 mode by doing this.

    Be advised that some MBs does not allow to use a GFX card @ x1 in a x16 slot.

    look at this pcix1 and at the card there is missing an notch u rly want to cut it now into the card? orr break off the backplate of the slot? and the cooling at this picture? isnt it not a bit too much porn? try a slot riser everything else were just dump to risk hardware the riser coasts 15€

    be sure that the pins dont scratch through the tape not that just some pins get contact

    i will say yes it works if u have no space problems but try the
    riser best way to prevent damages and u dont loose garantie

    Ellisdee, few posts in few days - but a lot of good info! didn't even know that these risers exist! I have to take a look on some webshop that allows shiping to Croatia :)
    Cheers! :cheers:

    Btw, he did NOT mean cutting off the card itself, just cutting the back of slot so card goes "through" the slot (only first part of connectors are connected and rest are just in the air). It damages MBO a bit, but not the card itself. I've heared some ASUS (?) MBOs have it like this by default!

    P.S. Whenever I click "More" for more smileys on this forum (today), I get NOD32 warning about possible HTML/TrojanDownloader.Agent trojan infection?

    Problem with slot risers is the card will sit too high and can't be screwed in properly.

    card sits ofcourse too high and u must use ur brain to get it screwed or u hab to leave it unscrewed which is for a gpu in a pcie1 slot not good but its easy to screw it use a long screw and a metal tube the matel tube u cut to the lenght what the card sits higher then u can screw it

    OR, you can just use onw of the million half-height cards for which these risers are usualy made anyway.
    There's even 9800GT with half-height card, tnx God Sparkle manufactures all kinds of weird cards :D

    I dont think there is any diference in cutting of the end of the PCIe slot than using a riser...

    BTW, i just tryied it in my MB and it does not work... i guess i gona need someone to mod a bios for me... i need to start looking.
