Has anyone tried putting a 5970 (or another GPU) into one of these and using it to mine ?

Seems like an ideal way to get even more slots out of your motherboard.
Its unlikely but when mine arrive I will be trialing it in older motherboards that did not have PCIE (if it works Im set for motherboards).

cost is about $20 ea.

edit: as pointed out to me by a user, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4894.0 it works great.
Ordering some meow.

edit: really not my day, another user pointed out that I was looking at PCIE -> PCI not PCI -> PCIE (damn you dyslexia you win again).
Fixed.

yes I have done it and have 10 more in stock. Some older boards have problems with it but normally it works. my MSI 890FXA powers on when the card is plugged in, so switch your psu off befor plugging.

Isn't that a PCI-1X to Molex adapter? Or am I missing something

Well, you said you realized it was PCIE to PCI Tongue

Either way, you realized the mistake, hopefully before buying Tongue

It does not work on all mbs, especially old ones.

For your case (putting PCIE card into PCI) you would need something like this: http://eu.startech.com/Cards-Adapters/Slot-Extension/PCI-to-PCI-Express-Adapter-Card~PCI1PEX1 but it's nonsense. Buy a proper MoBo instead :-)

Sorry to revive an old thread, but has anyone thought about the older magma backplane boards with 14 PCI slots- Model - PCI13BP Slot 32-bit/33Mhz PCI Expansion Board and each the PCI-32bit/33mhz > PCIE 16x adapter is $15 All together with adapters host card and adapters equals  roughly $250


thats just over 17000KHs for Scrypt coins

with alt coins you can make $300-$500 per day/ even with $350 per day which is the lower side of the daily profits, you will make your money back in 30 days, then its all profits from then on forward am I missing somthing here?
