Welcome Kingy! Always good to see a new friendly face on the forums. Do I understand that you don't have a PC yet? If you need advice to get set up then you'll find plenty of help here!

128 lanes in a single platform is really cool! It seemed less so after I read it was only 16 lanes per CPU die though.

Regarding the cable from your computers to your router in the other room, just buy a cheap switch. They cost next to nothing, you can plug all three computers into it and that will solve that issue.

I don't know of any alternatives without a powered backplane that are as long as the 3M ones, even 500mm doesn't give you a huge distance you could move the GPUs away from the motherboard. Sorry to ha...

I would use conventional PCI-E riser cables on each motherboard slot until it can't support any more GPUs. You can buy pretty long ones if you want them, up to 500mm without a backplane. Personally I...

Yes, this is only during folding. It depends on the WU but it pretty much never goes below 33% BUS utilisation on x16 PCI-E 3.0, and I imagine it will be even more on bigger GPUs later down the line.
