The Corsair 570x Crystal doesn't come with vertical GPU mounting option. Bill has installed Mnpctech NCASE Vertical GPU Mounting bracket You can drill four mounting holes in the rear ATX PCI slots. Make sure the motherboard is installed before determining the location the NCASE GPU Mounting Bracket, so you clear it.

Progress so far on the chassis. I've modified and removed the distracting hexagon from the front filter screen. I will be creating new filter. I've also made custom aluminum stand-offs for the front bezel, to improve airflow.
