The first thing on our "PC Mod Menu" is adding HDMI for VR Goggle port for Brittany, (Mod performed by Jacques)

90 degree 24 pin motherboard connector,

Jacques starts 1st cut to replace the Headphone / Mic ports in the Corsair 570x with HDMI port.

HDMi port added to the Corsair 570x, now Brittany can use her VR Goggles for new Fallout game release.

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.

580RX card installed with Mnpctech NCASE vertical bracket to demonstrate look of the vertical GPU orientation in the Corsair 570x Crystal. This will be replaced with ASUS STRIX 1080Ti with EK waterblock.
