Supermicro H8DGU-F in CSE-836TQ case expansion card questions

So. I am currently in the process of migrating my H8DGU-F from its 1u (4 drive) case to a CSE-836TQ 3u (16 drive) case. Now in the 1u, the single pcie/uio slot I could pop in a riser card to break out 2/3 pcie 8x slots. These were horizontal mounting. But in the new case all it allows is for vertical mounted cards. I need at least 2 pcie 8x for my HBA and Fiber channel card, and I would love to add a NVMe to PCIe adapter for my NAS cache.

So my question is could I put in a RSC-R2UU-A4E8+ (4 PCIe 8x slots) then run PCI-E riser extension cable (90 degree) to convert them riser slots to vertical?
