Vertical mount graphics card slot case with ventilation?

alyen

I have been looking around for a mid tower case with a vertical mount graphics card slot that includes a ventilation where 2 fans for the graphics cards would be. It seems like the newer cases these days wouldn't have it considering they often have a glass window or would only end up with a narrow window. I am not too concerned if it does not have a window or if it was acrylic window with some ventilation? Trying to avoid the DIY route since I do not have the tools to make it look nice.

 

Are there any other options other than a Thermaltake cube case? I would prefer to have a video card away from the CPU liquid cooler incase it leaks. The GPU could be located in another spot incase there was some leakage in the liquid cooler.

If you don't need to use any other slots in your case beyond the graphics one, I would suggest looking into the @CableMod bracket that adapts your current slots into a vertical mount with PLENTY of clearance for the card to breath properly.

Thanks I have considered something like that to utilize the side fan on a Fractal Design case I have.

I used the cooler master vertical mount with great success as well.. I think most built in vertical mounts are too close to the glass.. Except for the ones with 3 vertical slots, like the p600s..
