Vertical oriented pc cases?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Was just watching some random videos, and one thing I wondered about were pc cases that are vertical, where the graphics card is hanging down instead of lying across. Something like that would probably get more effective air flow than a traditional pc case.


Was wondering if anyone knew any cases they'd recommend? I'm not looking to buy any at this time, but maybe at some point in time.

With vertical cases, the GPU is horizontally positioned in the case. Are you talking about a horizontal case?

nah, talking about one where the whole layout is basically rotated 90 degrees, the motherboard and graphics card both lined downward

better, but expensive as balls for me. Don't really want to spend more than $150 for a case again

Well in that case, you may have to make a DIY case, if you really want the 90 degree rotated system, as I am not aware of many other cases with that layout.

there is a Thermaltake Core G3. which is under 100dollars. I want to get this one, but it would require to get a SFX PSU. and there is the Azza Z case thats under 100. but its an mini-itx case but uses a reg PSU... or you can always DIY a side mount GPU :)
