Quick question --

Do they allow you to use the PCI-E 1X slot that often goes RIGHT UNDERNEATH your 58XX card?
In other words, is the cable thin enough so that you can still put part of a double-width (two slot) card right over it?

I have one machine with a wide open PCI-E 1X slot -- but another machine where the 1X is underneath my 5830. Not being used, but totally covered by it.

Just wondering if anyone knows from personal experience --

Thanks,

Matthew

I just tried, and sadly i cant get my 5830 to fit in a 16x port, right next to a 1x port with an extender cable, so you need 2x pci-e extenders for it to work

It depends on the Card. My non reference 5870x2 can fit a 1x extender underneath it. While my sapphire 6950 cannot.

This would be a 5850 and a 5870. I guess I better order another cable, eh?

I tried, and it will not fit under a reference 5850 and 5770, a XFX non-reference 5850 or a reference 7990.

Not with any cable widely available. You would need a special L-shaped plug to get away with using the blocked port.
