Vertical GPU Mount

Anyone know of a mounting bracket similar to the cooler master one? The one one their site appears to be out of stock, but it is exactly what I need.

Contact them to see when they will be back in stock? Mountain mod has one but is the kind you rivet in place.

I saw the mountain mod one, but I would prefer not to cut up the case. Not much room in the Corsair 460X

You will have to cut the case even using the coolermaster bracket the PCI area is not open like the coolermaster case and has slats that will be in the way.

This is correct, but only on the pcie slots, not next to the slot in the mesh area. Plus the CM one would keep the card farther back from the glass for more airflow.

Yes it will keep it within one area but the vertical adapter won't fit unless all the slats are all cut out, since they will not allow for vertical portion of the adapter. On the Coolermaster cases they are all open unlike the Corsair case. 

 

Here is another type of adapter for that case, there are no horizontal slats between the PCI-E slots:

May not be relevant but I have been working on a vertical mount for my machine, if you want something DIY.  It is unpainted here but requires no modification to my case.  I just mounted to some available holes and I extended the mount back an inch or two to give space for airflow.  I didn't want to cut the case.  Did require a router to make room for connectors.  I'm more comfortable working with wood.

You've peaked my interested.

 

Could i cut out a spot right here (drawn in picture), rather than the original spots. So all original ports are kept and allows for easy installation of non-GPU based PCI hardware. While having the 2 slots in the location drawn in the picture for the GPU using bracket from the mountainmod link you provided? This way the GPU is also closer to the glass pane resulting in less glaring.

As long as you can fit the PCI bracket into place and cut out the mesh there accordingly I don't see a problem with that.

You definitely can do this.  There are also brackets you can install in place of the area shown.  The only issue to worry about is the distance between the fans and the side panel.  The closer to the side panel, the more choked for air the fans will become.  In my case I gave a good 2 inches between the card and panel.  I have no vent or cutout in the glass for airflow so I wanted this distance.  If you have a vent in the panel you have much less to worry about.  In the picture you marked up, there would be plenty of room for this mod and a glass side panel.  In my case the pic above with a wood block I would not. (or at least for me to be comfortable.)

 

2 PCI Modular IO bracket - Brushed ALU something like this would replace the area you outlined.  cut or de-rivet the area paint one of these and rivet or bolt it in place.  Good to go.  Assuming you have adequate air flow.

 

http://www.mountainmods.com/pci-modular-io-bracket-brushed-alu-p-701.html This is just what I found in a quick search.  There are plenty of options you could find.

What bracket is this one?

Looks just like this the one up top. Going to leave this link here since Cooler Master is taking so long getting their ducks together 
to supply vertical mounts. Hope this helps, might be a long ship date but I'm sure you will get it faster than Cooler Master can restock.

Just a quick proof of concept of something we're working on. This is a no modding required vertical mount we are looking to launch soon. We are going to for the final version be moving the GPU 1.5 inches closer to the side panel for more clearance behind the GPU, while still providing ample room for proper ventilation. This should be compatible with most mid-tower cases on the market with 7 PCI-E slots, and again requires no modding at all due to the spacing from the rear of the case to allow for display cables to pass through with ease. :)  vert.thumb.jpg.2fd11221de6e8f69d5bbf80cb3b45a88.jpg

After experiencing a similar issue finding the CM bracket, I did end up using the MountainMods bracket, and fabricating a mounting plate to replace the back of my case. This is more case modding than it seems you want to do, but I thought Id chime in with thoughts on the MM bracket. Its awesome, except for the small issue of the top mounting fold of the bracket not being level with the sides. So it was not totally flush when screwed in. Still perfectly functional thoug

@CableMod I sent you guys an email regarding this vertical GPU bracket. Any way you could PM with more details? Was considering the AliExpress one posted here, but this looks nice. Need to know pricing, availability details, and if it is a full kit (comes with cable/riser or not) will it be offered in white by chance? If I can get my hands on this soon, I will gladly pass on the one from AliExpress...lol. Thanks.
