Hello,

As the title says, I'm looking to split a PCIe 3.0 X16 slot to 2 X8 connections with a PCIe splitter cable (the BIOS supports it)
My problem: I cannot find such a cable.

Anyone knows a site which sells such a good quality splitter?

Thanks

Don't think you're going to find that. You can't route half the pins to one slot and half to the other. Both devices need to have access to the 22 pins before the key for power (and potentially SMBus, JTAG, etc), hence the PCB approach, which also houses a few extra required surface mount components.

I found PCIe 3.0 x16 to two 8x Oculink ports, but no luck finding Oculink to PCI slot adapter.

Look at this:

You could probably get an x16 to 2x x8 version from them (it's mentioned in the datasheet)
