Can you do a vertical mount sli setup with a case with a vertical mount and the cable mod mount. I would assume custom water cooling would be necessary.

Wait! What?! Normal card will suck the air from bottom of PC and than release the heat at the side of the card in the way of side panel OR if you remove the side panel it will blow hot air outside of the PC making it even cooler and lovering the fan speed. Vertically will suck the air from the side of the PC OR if you remove the side panel it will suck the air from outside of PC BUT it will blow hot air near your CPU and CPU cooling making it hotter and forcing CPU cooling to work faster.

Don't want to be negative but at ~ 5:46 that is not a mechanism. Something a person who knows a lot about cars should know Jay :) Mechanism has moving parts, that is just a bracket or if you want a more fancy word you could call it a fixture :) Anyway cool vid but for me a useless thing because I prefer a PC case without a window and without RGB. Just plain and simple (maybe I'm too old).

If my case has 9 slots.. and I need a slot for Avermedia 4k Capture card.. could i use a second PCIE cable to mount it lower than the video card using this? I wonder if that would work

how can you plug in all other display plug ins if the strips or bars cover them? are they just perfectly lined up so you can run the cables through?

Question: Do display cables fit just fine through back “bars”? I’ve got Corsair 570x and I want a vertical mount in my rig, but I don’t want any metal cutting to be involved. Any suggestion?

Can you tell me exactly how much it pushes the card forward? i have the Meshify C and love it but i also have a long 3 fan card and have less then an inch of room to spare between the end of the card and my front fans. but i do like the look a lot! can you help me out J! =D

Why not just buy a new case with vertical support? I know this was just a demonstration, but this is so impractical, I'd be surprised if they got any sales on this thing besides you or other testers.

i have a case with vertical mount support and i bought a vertical mount bracket like the one in the video, it is totally worth it, i use the NZXT H500i and if you use the vertical mount that already is integrated into the case my card just thermal throttles and also i have a strix card so i like to show it off without sacrificing power

pff my cards vertical without the adapter...only because I lay my case on its side. Heatsinks are getting wayyy too big to a point where I don't feel comfortable having my computer up right it, has to create a tone of torque.

otter25702 23 days ago
SLI an PCI-E add on cards are out of the equation with that device. If I were to go with anything like that I think I would go with a mobile G.P.U. separate from the MO/BO. in a self contained case. Nice idea if you don't need your slots...but I need mine. Nice job on the demo though.

aha ... why is the riser cable so long ? you could use a shorter cable and plug it in to the lower x16 slots ? is thery any issues with these cables anymore ?
YothaIndi Month ago
Food for thought: Would thermals be better is the fans were facing into the centre of the case rather than out? Or for that matter, would GPU thermals be better if they could be mounted with the fans facing up (ie upside down mounting with the fans on pull instead of push)?

If it was extended a bit more you could still put other cards, for other stuff. You would have to make some new holes for video ports. I would rather drill holes than lose my network card.

$80 for a flimsy tin foil. Its not rigid enough to fight sagging. Trash.

Not a single shot from the rear of the case. You need to show how the connectors on the actual gfx card are blocked. How the DVI is blocked.

Why don't we just 3D print a vertical mount.... And if we install a vertical mount of any type, the horizontal mounts have to be cut because they obstruct the Input and Output of the GPU

Damn this would have been perfect for my Aorus RTX 2080Ti with all it's RGB glory on the fan blades. It's thick though and even though I have the 7 spare brackets in my mid tower, I doubt it's worth even trying. At the end of the day, I'd rather it run cool then look cool.

why dont we just mirror our cases so the motherboard is upside down instead of the GPU? Would it be bad for the hardware?
Darren Rushworth-Moore
The large case has 8 slots, so why not move the bracket down one slot? Then you will still have access to the top PCI-e slot? I think the coolermaster one maybe better granted you need to cut into the chassis a little but thats not much effort and the graphics card is not moved 1-2" further into the case, so that option maybe better for smaller cases with the Strix graphics card at least.

I have tested a couple dozens times with my cooler master version of the mount, with my Evga GTX 1070 ftw . The mount has a lower profile to fit my mid-sized case giving me not necessarily better airflow but similar airflow without throttling my core clocks down in any way and the same is said when overclocking the card in both positions. (Average Results for cooling Horizontal non-OC under load 1950 boost 72C, OC-Under load 2100MHz 76C), Vertical was the same with a few 1% dips that really didn't change my data. two of my 12 test showed lower clocks vertical but one test horizontal also showed lower clocks. could use more testing. (Heaven, Valley, Evga OC precision Scanner, 3D-Mark, Rise of the tomb Raider all run 12 times in both positions). I'd like to see you get around to doing some test of your own for the cable mod V-Mount but i am hopeful you may have similar results.

i feel that a vertical mount is more for water cooled gpu (i am guessing it was introduced for this specific reason) as the window close up against the gpu helps show it off better and the water block with the fluid flowing makes it look good that's why it was introduced and besides why when you have a gpu with a back plate why show off the front? (my personal opinion)

Yes finally a mount for my GPU. I have a dual motherboard bay case those giant cases from the past and i wantedd to mount my GPU on the top deck but couldnt because no standalonee mount. But now i can buy this. My case also fixs dual power supply the massive ones although i dont have that i just have a 950w and it looks tiny in the case. Even my TR4 ATXe board looks small in this case.

When you integrate it into a permanent build, have a couple holes for fans (blowing outwards) cut into the side of the case. This should help with the thermal issue that everyone is worried about. RGB fans. Kinda tricky with glass, but I know you're pretty resourceful.

I have a Corsair 460X Crystal Series Glass case and use the CoolerMaster vertical gpu bracket to mount my Strix 2080TI and it fits and looks amazing. No cooling issues at all with 6 Corsair HD120 fans. System is quite quiet too. I was going to go with a larger case but I like the 460X because I can pick it up easy and carry it under my armpit with one arm when I take it out on my patio every once in a while to do a dust blow out on the whole system.
