How to Buy PCI-E Riser

  1. 1. How To Buy PCI-E Riser A PCI-E RISER •allows the installation of an internal expansion card in an orientation parallel to the motherboard •allows expansion cards to communicate with the computer's processor •allows the motherboard to be connected to another device or driver, such Company as a network card, sound card or television tuner. LOGO LEARN HOW TO BUY THE BEST PCI-E RISER TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR PC.
  2. 2. Choosing the proper PCI-E riser for your system can be somewhat tricky. 1. check your motherboard's manual 2. check the card interface used by the card you’re buying 3. ensure that your motherboard supports that particular type of PCI-E riser. 4. You must research on where to by your PCI-E risers and compare their prices.

  4. 4. PCI-E riser Choosing the proper card interface for your system can be somewhat tricky. •You need a PCI-E riser for many different reasons, such as playing a video game, connecting to a network or even listening to your favorite album. Older graphics cards used the AGP standards, but newer PCI-Express have been produced that offer much greater bandwidth to graphics cards. The main types of PCI- riser you can come across in the market are: •PCI-E x1 to x16 non-powered •PCI-E x1 to x16 powered •USB extender PCI-E x1 to x16 powered
  5. 5. PCI-E RISER TYPES VIA EPIA-M910 Mini-ITX Board PCIE-03 Riser Card 2U RHS Riser Card - PCI-E x16, PCI-E x8 All these encompasses the same functions, Such as raising the video card off the motherboard for better air circulation and space management. 2U Left Riser Card - PCI-E x16 + x16
  6. 6. PCI-E RISER TYPES PCI-E x1 to x16 powered You can use PCI-E x1 to x 16 powered when you need more cards on your motherboard. This is because each card will pull its on power (about 180~200 watts) from combination of the PCI-E slot and power supply. According to the PCI-E specifications: •a PCI-E x16 will safely draw up to 75 watts •a x1 slot will handle up to 25 watts. The powered risers protects the motherboard from pushing too much wattage through the circuits.
  7. 7. PCI-E RISER TYPES PCI-E x1 to x16 non-powered You can use PCI-E x1 to x16 non-powered when you need less than 3 cards on your motherboard. This is because most newer motherboards will handle enough wattage to fuel up to 3 PCI cards without the need of powered risers.
  8. 8. PCI-E RISER TYPES •USB extender PCI-E x1 to x16 powered •You can use USB extender PCI-E x1 to x16 powered when you need flexibility, mobility, and reliability. •They are the same as normal powered riser, but they are longer and can be safely mounted because of the small circuit board the card can rest on. •It is connected by a high quality 30cm USB cable. •It is a small and stable circuit board which houses a full sized x16 PCI-E slot with a 12v power connector and the other side is a small and sleek x1 slot board that plugs directly into your motherboard. •This PCI-E riser offers your video cards ample distribution of heat and allocation of space.
  9. 9. Motherboard’s manual You should start by checking your motherboard's manual to know which PCI-E riser you can buy. •The number of available ports mentioned in the motherboard’s specifications. •You will also get the interface type mentioned in the manual. •Some motherboards have powered pcie slots but in most cases it requires additional power connection.
  10. 10. Card’s interface •In order to know which PCI-E riser you can buy, you should check the interface used by the card you are using. •Ensure that there are PCI-E Riser slots available in your computer •If your card uses a different interface, then check that your motherboard supports the specific port •Some PCI-e risers come with smaller PCB & different header direction.
  11. 11. Motherboard type Make sure that there are enough available PCI slots in your computer. •Check the sizes of PCIE slots •Examine the physical appearance of your motherboard and PCI-E card.
  12. 12. If the card uses a different interface, ensure that your motherboard supports that particular type of port. It is very important to examine your motherboard and understand what kind of slot your use first before going for your pcie riser. Some motherboards have additional options. For instance you can change the AGP-port slot for PCIe 16x slot, this means that with the PCIe add-on and AGP or a PCIe 16x slot as the first slot and PCI slot as the sescond slot, your PCIe 16x will work. The only simple trick when buying the PCI-E riser is checking your motherboard. when your pcie 1x fails to respond, a jumper wire can enable your motherboard to recognize your PCI-E slot before using or testing your new PCI-E riser.
  13. 13. Price It is important to compare the different PCI-E riser prices in the market. You must also research where you can get the best deal with discounts. This can be possible at PCI-E riser. Here you can find quality PCI-E risers and cables at good prices.
  14. 14. Conclusion Motherboards are generally limited to the number of PCI slots when they are made, but you can buy PCI-E riser and add to your motherboard provided the interior of your computer has enough room. Don’t be frustrated with the lack of quality PCI-E risers you buy. although many buyers hold one misconception that the most expensive PCI-E risers are the best. You can get good things and good deals in the market. Don’t also be frustrated with the delay in delivering goods. There are top sellers who can guarantee you same day delivery and shipping from their warehouses. You can therefore get the best deal as long as you do your research first on how to buy PCI-E riser and the best PCI-E providers.
