PCI-E x8 to PCI-E x16 riser

Hi Guys,

 

Has anyone any experience with a PCI-E x8 to PCI-E x16 riser. I know many of them are dodgy and should not be used, which is why I am seeking some recommendations.

 

I've stated in quite a few posts, my board is an SuperMicro X10SL7-F https://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/xeon/c220/x10sl7-f.cfm

 

I have 2 PCIe slots:

 

1 PCI-E 3.0 x8 (in x16 slot)

1 PCI-E 2.0 x4 (in x8 slot)

 

I have an Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050 Ti OC LP 4GB passed through to an client VM under libreelec in the PCI-E 3.0 x16 (x8) slot. This card basically blocks my use of the PCI-E 2.0 x8 (x4) slot due to the size of the card. I would like to be able to drop a GPU in that slot too ... hence the need for a riser.

 

Thanks in advance.
