Riser Card: 1USB vs 4USB ???
#1
Ok, so I'm looking at the hardware that's out there. And I'm wondering about the riser cards. I see there are multitude of variations of them. But one that catches my attention is the 4 port USB ones. eBay Pci-e 1x to 4 Port PCI Express 16x Slots Riser External Card Converter Adapter

Are those any good? Is there a reason why you'd choose the 1x over the 4x?  Most rigs I see use the 1x, but I don't know if that's just because they have motherboards with lots of slots to begin with, or what.

I bought one of these a few days ago. I will let you know by the end of the week how it works Smile Stand by... This the one I bought, it should be here Wednesday. http://amzn.to/2Bzyl0z

I'm going to try doing an unboxing video of it but we all know how those have gone, too many promised and not enough delivered. Regardless, I will be promptly providing feedback Wink
