PCIe extension cable power delivery

Would an x1 PCIe extension cable deliver the full 75w of bus power to an attached GPU, or would a secondary power source be necessary?

A 1x slot only provides a maximum of 10W (or 25W when the device initialises and identifies as a high power device), so to answer your question, no.

You need a 16x slot for the full 75W.


Depends on the riser, I would highly suggest you take a look at this video to prevent a fire
