PCI-E 16x Riser and 1070

Hey, im looking to mount my pc on the wall therefore i need to use a riser. I've seen some threads on many forums and some are saying that there is significant performance loss and some say that there are none. I want to use 2x20cm riser since others are ridiculously expensive and here is my question, is here anyone that uses risers this long and can say how they perform?
Cheers.

    You'll want to get the expensive shielded risers or you will have some performance issues.
    From what I've seen of wall mounted builds there's only like a 1% performance loss if you use the right quality PCIE risers.
