PCIe 3.0 x16 flex cable not compatible with RTX 30 series8/16/2021 1:09:17 PM

Pros: Xbox tower like design with good airflow.

Cons: What a pain, had everything installed in the case but it wont boot due to PCIe 3.0 flex cable and MB in 4.0 mode. Had to disassemble and plug the gpu plug in MB to change the x16 setting to gen 3.0 for the flex cable to work!

Overall Review: Phanteks cheaped out and should include a PCIe 4.0 x16 flex cable instead!
