Positive: looks


Negative: often worse airflow, you will be blocking off any other PCIE slot, clearance with especially large CPU cooler can be difficult with wider cards


I don't have experience with any particular mount, but doesn't Cablemod have a mount? If they do, I seem to remember hearing it was alright.. not sure though.

Arguably there is no "Best" Veritcal riser on the market. They all do their job to different levels (either taking up existing slots or DIY ones like @Mnpctech sells)  depending on what you're looking for. The two big standard converts are the @CableMod Vertical GPU riser and the Coolermaster one.

The positives are nearly 100% aesthetic reasons. There is no performance, cooling or overclocking advantages to installing your card this way. 


Negatives includes cost, potential signal degradation from a cheap PCI-E extender (if you dont buy one of decent quality), and clearance with large Air Tower CPU coolers (especially with cards that are taller than the PCI-E slots themselves). Cases that have native PCI-E slots that put cards directly against the tempered glass are NOT designed for air cooled cards, as the cards will choke on the glass and get almost no air, increasing temps and decreasing your FPS. (Your MB500 does not have this, but it's worth mentioning)



This video specifically refers to the Native PCI-E mounts I mentioned above
