Vertical Graphics Card Bracket

Recommended Posts

I thought you might be interested to know if your large graphics card will work with CM's Vertical Graphics Card Bracket. The answer is "maybe", it depends on what memory you have (and potentially your air cooler?). 

 

Attached are images of an MSI 2080 Ti Trio in a H500M case. Unfortunately OOTB the graphics card clashed with my RGB RAM.

 

I dropped the GPU holder to the bottom of the H500M case instead of it's as-designed position, but it still didn't clear the RAM. So I had to modify the bracket to lower it further by bending the bottom edge by about 3mm (don't cut it, it's required for structural integrity, and yes I need to paint it). This gave me about 2-3 mm clearance on the RAM.

 

Then because it wasn't sitting in the as-designed position, I had to trim back the bracket where it is meant to fit into the removable cover slots and also drill some new holes. This change leaves a space of about 1cm at the top of the bracket because there's not enough room to put a standard removable cover back in (I might need to cut one down).

 

So the net result is that it does fit with some modification, but only just - and with taller RAM it probably wouldn't fit.

 

Temperature for CPU/GPU don't seem to have been affected.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Spec:

CM H500M Case

CM MasterLiquid ML240R RGB
