COOLER MASTER GPU RISER CABLE ISSUES

Hello all.

 

I recently upgraded my system (and spent A LOT of money, for me anyways).  I noticed right off that I was getting terrible scores in literally every Benchmark in the 3D MARK test kits. I was losing my mind trying everything, wondering what was wrong. After trying several tweaks/changes, I finally discovered what my issue was. I had purchased a COOLER MASTER COSMOS CM700 E-ATX case when I first upgraded in 22'. It came with a GPU Riser cable for vertical Graphics mounting. Seemed to work fine but there was performance issues. After trying several software tweaks with no success, I decided to mount the GPU to the Mobo and do away with the vertical mount kit. I've attached a jpg to show the difference that made in the 3D MARK test scores. I don't know if the cable was bad, or just outdated, but it was like night and day. So bottom line, if you're mounting the GPU vertically, make sure you have a high end cable capable of handling the latest PCIe bandwidth.
