Upgrading are risers an acceptable way to upgrade

currently a weak saphire 6450 but easy to work the overclocking would risers be practical to upgrade, i was thinking 12 GTX 940x at 220 a piece might be in my budget for next year. Was wondering if anyone with experience could share on best cables cases and cooling modes and acpi connector cables though do not want a server per say  i ahd one powerful but just way to loud, would it be more feasable to use asic miner power units and splitters ie 1600 watt psu, mostly wondering about cases and cables though, and recommendations on GTX 940x ish gpu's i could use.

There is no such thing as a GTX 940...

And can you try and explain your question better, please?

um yes gtx 940x 4 gb i already light cpu mining, 2560 x oc 30% 16 core 8 x 8 threads and 32 GB ddr3 memory the  risers i am planning rather than trying 3060 or such 12 risers with alternate pci config device called an UM interface and very eying the hash psu 1600 watt but need to know if they have side effects and are reliable etc calculated cost is running about 1300-1400 220 x 12 and 200-250 for the UM but not including the psu 48 GB grp mem total and quite cheaper than 3060 etc

um soryy i use a 2650 not a 2560 very big difference, throw new ice bricks on the case every 1.5 hours to keep it below 58, metal case primitive but cools the board well.
