Vertical Graphic Card Holder with SLI/Crossfire-Support

Recommended Posts

Hello dear Cooler Master Team,

I´m from Germany and a big fan of your gorgeous cases, but first of all i´m sorry for my english.

 

Most of all i like the MasterCase Maker 5 and really like to build a new rig with this nice case.

Now i saw you have the ability to mount the gpu vertical and i really like it to show up the gaming heart of your rig. So i decided to choose the vertical graphic Card holder but now i´m on a big Problem with that. Why don´t you have a holder for SLI/Crossfire- Support for a 2-way System? Maybe i´m not the only one who like to have something like that. The case is big enough for this and the holder could be extended for this Support because of your modular case System. I just know only one other manufacture which has this Support but first of all i like your case much more and on the other side there is only an open case available....

Maybe this could be an interesting oppinion for you to be the first with this solution.

 

Big greetings from Germany.

The big issue I potentially see with this is ventilation issues specifically if they're stacked (blocking ventilation to one of the fans on a card) in a similar mount to the one in your picture examples.  You might be able to achieve something like that if you make your case slightly taller and have them set one over the other so you're showcasing both of your cards.

What do you mean by "good reference"? 

(The Vertical graphics card holder does fit in that chassis; but only supports 1 graphics card)

This has not seemed to go anywhere, but I am looking for the same part. Has anyone found a solution, or modified multiple kits to work?

It would seem Vassil was asking about whether he has found one or not.

The vertical mounting would not in any way change airflow dynamics over having one or two GPU's assuming case was wide enough to accomodate them at the same distance apart normal SLI'd GPU's fit in the slots. they take up a similar square area for 2 cards and thus while shifted lower (which may suffer airflow dynamic problems from cages for HDD&SDD's) that is not a problem in the mounting but rather case designs; most cards by nvidia are pull references, and thus it would actually be better for heat dissipation to be vertically mounted instead of pumping hot air down out of it and expecting the air to magically float back up around it without building up turbulence hitting the 2nd card; now the heat will hit the 2nd card but have a much less obstructed place to go.
