    Hi all

    I've searched and searched with no luck.

    I need a 3.3v 32-bit PCI riser for my mini-ITX motherboard. All the 32-bit risers I can find are for 5v slots. Am I right to believe that the contacts and notches for 5v and 3.3v are symmetrical? Could I buy a passive 5v riser and just plug it in backwards to give me a 3.3v riser that positions the card over the motherboard (component-side up)? That would be perfect.

    Thanks for any help. Apologies if I've overlooked a thread that answers this already.

    Simon

    Perhaps I've posted in the wrong forum? Any suggestions? Thanks
