Micro ATX PCI expander

Post by fokas » Fri Aug 18, 2017 2:44 am

This just caught my attention. It can be Sata powered which seems promising but needs to be tested and will be an ergonomical wonder for a MicroATX in a ATX Case.

I've been using Riser Cards and Ribbons for years.
Its how I have 1U PCs for Scope.
Using micro ATX too.
We don't need all of the excess slots and gunk on gaming boards.

You need to ensure it’s the proper voltage conversion for 32 bit PCI Slots to function correctly.
But using one that would work would be a gold mine on Z97 boards.
No PCH Redirections, straight to the CPU.
