Hi all,

So I was lucky enough to get a hold of Reference 6800XT for about $1500 CAD a few days ago and sold my RX580 for $500.

However I think I would like to Side mount the GPU and slap an AIO on instead of the reference cooler.

So the next question is I would need the right parts to side mount the GPU in my case and it has to be a PCIe 4.0 riser Cable so something like this below.


What is the correct length for the Riser and is linkup a good brand for this? i've heard of issues with lower quality cables etc.

Just looking for Feedback and suggestions.

Why would you do that? These cables are going to introduce issues. MB manufacturers try to shorten pcie path but you want to add multples of length to the path? Is it just for looks? Surely the aio piping is long enough?

After looking into this more the Linkup Cable is the correct one as it shows its compatible with my case.
