Excellent Product 2/21/2020 9:59:05 AM

Pros: Very easy to install, very little case modification to my Corsair box. Everything fit exceptionally well together and definitely embodies the description of universal! This bracket places my GTX 1070 in comfortable distance from my Tower cooler which was my initial concern when i ordered it.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Great product all around

Works great with Phantek cases 1/1/2020 6:23:53 PM

Pros: I have the Phantek Enthoo Pro case, the bracket was tool less total time took about 15 minutes from start of project to gaming again. Very sturdy, well hidden by Video Card. Saves wear on the PCIe Socket by taking stress off of it.

Cons: Can't see my entire Motherboard, for me the wow affect is the motherboard the GPU is just an avenue to game. But I did this mod to remove stress from the slot not for reasons of showing off the GPU. This mod makes it impossible to reach the cmos reset jumper, the M.2 and blocks all other PCIe slots. Also if you water cool with a system and not an AIO you may have to relocate your reservoir.

Overall Review: Do your research, watch videos, this mod might not work with your case or may need a total revamp of the entire rear IO panel. If you own a case made by the same manufacturer that makes these vertical mods do your self a favor and by the same brand, sometimes you get lucky like I did.

If you follow instructions it works great! 12/15/2019 11:59:40 AM

Pros: You get to mod your case!
Vertical mounting allows you to see all the work some industrial designer put into the face of your GPU!
Can allow more room for over-sized or oddly configured GPU's.

Cons: If you are afraid of tin snips or a Dremel tool this might be too much for you.
If the tool con applies and you go ahead anyway you could adversely affect your GPU cooling.
Requires the use of 7 slots in the case. If you don't have the room don't bother.

Overall Review: After reading other reviews what I expected to get was a cheap flimsy piece. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with what arrived. Yes its made of sheet metal but its not flimsy. It will flex before the GPU is mounted in it which is the second thing you should do after installing the PCIE extender. Think of it as a unibody type piece. With the GPU mounted properly in the bracket it is much stiffer as the GPU lends its rigidity to the entire assembly. Also note the amount of space between the bottom of the bracket and your PSU if its on the bottom of your case. Phanteks provides some foam rubber pads you can use to support the bracket if need be.

You will most likely need to cut some of the supports between the slots out of the way which was easily and cleanly done on my case with a pair of aviation snips. Keep in mind that if you are using a blower style cooled GPU anything obstructing the back of the card will reduce your airflow and cooling. Take the time to remove them.

The instructions that come with this piece are barely adequate. It's not rocket science but I can see how some less DIY inclined types might have issues. Here's a step by step for those who may need it:

1. Take the bracket with nothing installed and check fit it in the back of your case. Make sure to note any possible obstructions and exactly how many (if any) slots need sheet metal removed. Keep in mind you will want to keep the part where the hold down screws install. That is the main structure the bracket attaches to.

2. Now install the PCIE extender to the bracket using 2 of the included screws. The holes in the cable mount were a bit snug at first but a couple turns and they were easy.

3. Now you mount the GPU in the bracket BEFORE YOU INSTALL IT IN THE CASE!! I'm pretty sure a majority of the bending complaints were caused by trying to install the GPU after the bracket was already installed.

4. Connect the extender to the PCIE slot you intend to use and make any 4-6-8 pin and fan/pump connections now as they may be more difficult once everything is installed. Also prepare any pads needed for support. Carefully move the assembly into position and slide it in to place like you would any 7 slot wide GPU. Then screw in the 3 attached thumbscrews to the hold downs. I needed to use a screwdriver to get them to thread in properly due to minor deflection from cutting the extra metal out. Once they are tight the bracket is going nowhere.

I couldn't be happier with this product. Did the job quick and easy!

Works Good 9/11/2019 6:34:02 AM

Pros: GPU vertical adapter works good. works good for my build. where the GPU slot positions AO Card over one of the chip set ICs causing higher thermals

the base of this adapter is smaller and having less physical material makes this a good choice for parts getting heated up under full loads for thermal vapors

extension cable is long

Cons: difficult to get mount screws lined up. have to move the bracket around while getting mount screws lined up and threaded.

extension cable is long

Overall Review: bracket works as intended. good purchase in my opinion

It works well 8/27/2019 2:20:51 PM

Pros: It works!! Used it on an Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2600 Super video card.
Comes with the extension cable.

Cons: The screws that it came with to attach to the case where to short for my case but I have an 8 year old Antec 1200 case so I used longer screws I had laying around and it worked perfectly!!!

Overall Review: Would buy again if I wanted to vertical mount another GPU in a case that didn't support it!

Works But Needs Better Metal 8/26/2019 3:20:29 AM

Pros: Works with the o11 Dynamic case without restricting the use of bottom fans
Comes with a riser cable (and it's long enough)
Holds the GPU in a middle position away from the side panel so it can get superior airflow compared to rival GPU brackets (probably why it blocks all expansion slots)
Bottom L-shaped piece is not needlessly large so it doesn't block airflow from any fans that may be under it

Cons: Flimsy. It anchors tight, but the L-shaped part wiggles.
Riser cable is only PCIE gen 3
Bracket blocks all expansion slots

Overall Review: Don't bump it.

Thermals are awful 8/12/2019 8:00:31 AM

Pros: Easy to install
Construction is sturdy
Looks Great
Fair Price

Cons: None

Overall Review: I bought this for the looks. I was unaware that mounting a card vertically would have such an adverse affect on performance. Sure, maybe it all depends on the case design it's installed in. In my case it caused a 10 degree jump in thermals under load, which in turn caused artifacting and hard crashes. Very unfortunate because I have modded my case, removing the slots. Now I have a gaping hole in the back of my case, LOL. Guess I'll buy a new case now.
