Does my case support a vertical GPU mount?

no, unless you use third party vertical gpu bracket.
Phanteks made one too, but their version pretty much only usable with a certain version of PCI slots.

If you really wanted to, you could mod one in there, but it does not appear to support a vertical GPU out of the box.

Looks like a guy in here did it with a cooler master kit, and a few others have done the same, pic related is an enthoo pro M with the phanteks vertical gpu mount but with the air cooler they note there’s only a few mm of clearance, with an aio I imagine this isn’t a concern

It’ll definitely fit, though obviously unlike a case with a removable pcie bracket wall, it will require cutting out the existing bracket wall.

Space wise though it’s fine.

 

Not an awfully complex mod if you have the tools, ideally a dremel and a drill, to cut out the area and make some bolt holes to secure the new bracket to the chassis. Pop rivets will also work for that but they’re not easily removable.

Latest version of Cooler Master's bracket doesn't require cutting.

Although, check clearance first if you are using a long GPU, like ASUS Rog Strix.
Since you'll be adding up to 55mm-ish to it's length.

Sorry, folks... So I have this kit already from EKWB, but I'm just not sure those horizontal bars still in place are going to allow for it to work... Am I missing something...

This type of bracket is pretty much like Phanteks' bracket.
You will need to cut all those bars first.

You didn't check case compatibility at EKWB's website before buying ?
The button is under "Add to Cart"

The "shifted" version is the one that doesn't require cutting :

Did you have to throw in the snarky comment about, "you didn't check case compatibility before buying-- it's right here." Oh yeah, this is the internet-- being a jerk is mandatory....

 

Not sure if I checked or not... Had to for everything else I bought for this build... Might have, might not have. Regardless, I understand now-- must cut out bars... Have a nice night...

you can buy ones that you dont have to cut or ones that mount to the bottom of the case.

I think he will still have to cut something because his case has those spacers between the PCI brackets.

ya its nvm he all ready got it and if you have to cut then you have to cut i was just pointing out that there are ones that you dont have to cut.
