verticle gpu mounts bad???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im planning to get a verticle gpu mount to show off my rtx 2070 strix... but i heard that the verticle gpu mount will choke the gpu especially with a glass pannel 

 

any suggestions?

Yes, only option is to A) Water cool the card or B) Get a @CableMod vertical GPU mount assuming you A) Have an ATX case, and B) don't have any need to use any other expansion slot on your motherboard. This is the only feasible solution to vertical GPU mounting for air cooling in my opinion.

It depends on what mount you get. If the card is only like a centimeter away from the glass/panel then yeah, the airflow will be choked (unless you're liquid cooling but it doesn't sound like you are).

 

The CableMod mount isn't up against the glass/panel is much farther back. It's better than the traditional mounts.

Most mounts that use the PCIe slots on the case are more than adequate and will NOT restrict airflow, as Skiiwee29 said. Cablemod, Cooler Master and Phanteks (i think) all make one..  The built in ones are the ones that cause problems.

I have a Fractal Design R6 which had the vertical mount option and am just using a EVGA riser cable with my 2080ti, zero issues cooling using the stock air cooler but I think I have about an inch and half of space from the glass to the card.

There are vertical mounts that use the existing PCIe bracket right next to the motherboard to remove the cooling problem, but then you cant use any of the other PCIe slots and even the headers on the bottom can be hard to access.

As for those built in cases from the factory, you cant air cool them if you still want decent thermals.
