Our own GPU Risers are now here! Be avant-garde by choosing the most advanced risers on the market. The 010s version comes with 8 capacitors and a full metal PCIE port that will give you unbeatable durability!
Three ways to feed your v010s risers:
- The 6pin power supply: The 6pin power supply is undoubtedly the best way to power the risers. The 6pin connectors are designed for 18amp (216w on 12v) which is enough to power your GPU. It is important to note that the v010s risers have two 6pin connectors on the front and on the right side allowing you to have better “cable management”.
The MOLEX power supply: The 4 pin molex connectors are rated at 11 amps for the 12V rail ( 132 watts on the 12v). Therefore, we recommend to supply MOLEX only to the risers of graphics cards that consume less than 11 amps.
- SATA power: SATA connectors are designed for 4.5 amps (for 54 watts) on the DC 12V rail. The PCIe specification allows a GPU to draw 5.5 amps (66-75w) from the PCIe 12V bus. A 1080 ti GPU, for example, draws 4.4 amps at 80% power and over 4.5 amps at 100% power. Therefore, a 1080ti at full power draws more than 4.5 amps and you draw too much current through a SATA connector. It is therefore strongly recommended to use SATA cables on risers with more than 4.5 amps.
IMPORTANT: Your graphics card and its riser must be powered by the same powersupply. Otherwise, the two powersupplys will fight to supply the graphics card with 12v continuous. This can seriously damage your equipment and even cause a fire.
