    Has anyone ever used a 7" PCIE Riser to access covered PCIE slots on Bloodrage?

    I am curious on this subject. I have 2 video cards in the 2 red pcie slots. I can't used my other 2 slots due to the design of the board. Has anyone tried this? I want to use this for my bootable Sata III controller card that I currently have on my PCIE x1 slot.

    It should work okey. No any technical restrictions or incompatibilities expected .

    I will post my results when it comes in. Im going to switch out my Sata III card too. I am going to try SYBA SY-PEX40039 PCI-Express 2.0 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card on my setup and see how it goes. Either way I have my other setup I was going to need a Sata III card for and then I will decide between the HighPoint Rocket or Syba card on the Bloodrage.

    I am just curious on the results on the Asmedia vs the Marvell chipset and 1x slot compared to 8x slot... its all for fun

    Waiting the results. AsMedia chip should be better than Marvell 9128, but both controllers have pci-e 2.0 x1 restriction.

    I couldnt get the ribbon to fit underneath the video cards... makes no sense to put 2 pcie 8x slots under 2 16x slots and can't use them!!!!
    Any who... I installed the Asmedia card in the 1x slot and here are some results.
    Marvell Asmedia

    Marvell Asmedia

    Wish I could try it on the 8x slot but I am not sacrificing a video card. Overall I like the results better on the Asmedia card. I am using 1.3.4.0 driver. The write speeds changed alot!

    If I'm correct (and I think, I am ), both cards (Marvell and AsMedia) have pci-e 2.0 x1 interface. You'll see no difference in x8/x16 pci-e slot. AsMedia results are definitely better and instead of CrystalDiskMark you should try AS-SSD. It has also a compression-benchmark, very useful .

    I have seen a few benchmarks in which they ran both cards on a x8/x16 slot and achieved faster speeds. Both cards top out at about 600 MB/s but are restricted to 500 MB/s on the 2.0 x1 slots. I am going to see if I can find something else on ebay.

    I couldnt get the riser to work but I might pop off a video card and test it on the x8 or x16 slot just for knowledge. I dont think its worth losing a HD6950 for an extra 100MB/s on a SSD drive. Im also going to put the Marvell card back on and run AS SSD for therager and who ever else googles this so they can have an idea. I found little out there when searching on Mavell vs Asmedia on PCI-E x1 2.0. Atleast not I can prolong the setup a little longer and get something high end towards the end of the year.
