Hello all,

I own a Z390 Godlike Motherboard and this is my set up (ZOOM IN):

View: https://imgur.com/a/V7gq5UI


I currently have 2 RTX 3090s in the PCI-E lanes 2 + 4

I want to buy a PCI-E x 1 GPU Riser Cable Extender Adapter to put a 3rd RTX 3090 into my PC
Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/FebSmart-Litecoin-Extension-Ethereum-Extender/dp/B08HHSPPBD/ref=asc_df_B08HHSPPBD/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=475692076734&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=18198048097816753973&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9004364&hvtargid=pla-1090674342638&psc=1

Can someone who is knowledgeable shop for the BEST PCI-Ex1 riser cable that is compatible with my motherboard?
I hear that some bad riser cables can get their capacitors burned so I want to buy the highest quality one.

Remember: This motherboard is only a PCI-E 3.0 board. The point of 3 RTX 3090s is for mining.

Respectable
Is GPU mining still anywhere close to being profitable?
To answer your question, any riser that has aux 12v power will do. I would put all of them on riser cables to protect the motherboard +12V PEX lines.
The Top Left of those is the better option, suppllying all power levels with dedicated voltage regulators.

What is the model number/brand for the one you said was the best. Links to website purchase would also help!
