Found this splitter.. looks like it has bitcoin potential, wondering if anyone has used one and how it worked.

I have seen somebody link to this page saying they're using one.

However, i used the 'request quote' on that amflec page a couple weeks ago and got no reply.

So, the better question would be if anybody knew of an actual seller of these.

that former thread also someone posted they did end up getting a quote..

was around 350 dollars I think, and a ridiculous shipping fee..

Its awesome, dont get me wrong, not just 400 dollar awesome

It's not designed for x16 graphics cards but rather various x1 expansion cards/sound cards/PCI-e work tools.
For your money's and warranty's sake don't use something like that for mining.

If you put 4 PCI-e GPU's in the slots and fire up your motherboard, the splitter will draw 300 watts just from one socket.
It will fry the motherboard within a second.

However if you decide to, at least use one of those modded cables from cablesaurus with a Molex connector feeding extra power to prevent damage.

Well they do have an option for external power connectors, old school floppy connectios that I 'd be worried about pulling 75W through anyway.

But yeah, looks like a good idea, but doesn't look like it would flesh out into a useful setup.

There is a 1x to 3 1x expansion that works pretty good, I was quoted $130 shipped per board and they do work for BTC mining.
