180 degree GPU PCIE power adapter. Safe to use?

Hi everyone!

I hope I post this in the right place. I wanted to know if it's safe to use these adapters on our GPUs. images.jpeg

I just installed my new 7900 xt in a Lian Li 216 and wanted to give my case a cleaner look (and better airflow) but won't if these things have a high failure rate. If they're okay to use what are some factors I need to consider before getting them?

 

Thanks to everyone who responds!

They work fine as far as my previous uses. They also make a 5.0 version

It seems to be a adapter that both plugs on the adapter are connected directly with each other without any electronics involved.

So I don't really see any issue unless for some reason the adapter won't be able to withstand the high wattage from your GPU card.
