The HD5750 usually gets around 17k in '06 so the reduction in performance from using a full x16 2.0 link is 50%. My cpu is a 2.1 ghz mobile athlon II M320, and I have 4gb of ddr2 ram on win7 x64 premium.
I'm a little late on the uptake here, but you sure it's the x1 link that's hurting the '06 score? Using a 5870 w/ 1x nets only ~1000 less for '06 then using 16x. I'd wager that the Athlon II is bottle necking the setup a lot more then the 1x connection is. Regardless, that's pretty sweet.

Hey, what model is this pci-e riser?

I found those from the DIY Vidock thread:

PE4L ( PCIe passive adapter ver1.5 )
PE4H (PCIe passive adapter ver2.0a)
Amfeltec :: Flexible MiniPCI Express to PCI Express Riser

Are you using one of those?

Try it because you can!

Are the laptop temps lower, higher, or the same with the access cover off?
