How do I do it?  What adapters/converters/etc do I need?  Got an open PCI-E 1x slot and need an extender.  Didn't know I could even mine with it, just give me links!  (That sounded messy)

take your 1x pcie slot, and cut off the end of it, so it will fit a x16 card. and then you're ready to go!

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Not exactly... you probably need to bridge some of the pins first to make an x16 card "acceptable" for an x1 extension cable. I created a similar thread here, and shivanas suggested this.

Still have yet to try it out.

This is a bad, bad idea.

Its a better plan to buy a 1x pci-e extender and cut that.  They only cost like 6 bucks, so if something goes wrong, it is a much cheaper mistake.
