Of the very few I know with cream puff rigs and vertical graphics cards had a pile of custom hardware and cabling to go along with it.

 

My Obsidian 750D is a large but conventional EATX box with lots of room for the H115i water cooler.

 

On the front was an option for a 420mm radiator but I elected to install a third cage and stuff the machine with lots of hard disks. Even with 3 cages there is still room for 11-12" video cards but the RTX 2080 I have is a measly 10.5" long and it's easily installed.

 

The RTX 3080 is longer and thicker. It fits too. I have a R9 Fury so I can test fit giant power pigs.

Maybe I'm not understanding what you're trying to achieve, but why don't you use the built in vertical mount?

 

This is the EVGA 3070Ti FTW3 in my 4000D AF and all PCI slots are still usable.

 

The card is pretty close to the side window (but doesn't hit it) and I just remove the glass side panel when I'm gaming.

that's the point. you have to open the case to game.

If he can do a vertical mount that's recessed inside the case, there will be no need to open the case and the card won't overheat :)

The case vertical mount is only really useable by low power 2 slot cards or watercooling, if you want to keep the case closed.

Ok that's what I thought he might be getting at even though he didn't specifically state it.

 

An adjustable-angle bracket might provide better cooling, but I'm guessing at least some slots would end up blocked...

the problem is the brackets slot is not fully opened on the 4000D. It is open on the 011. So i don't think it would work there. The Displayport plugs are fairly wide and would not clear.

Even with the recessed EK mount, you have to use angled connectors.

 

Honestly, i would dremel the bracket area open lol

A bit of polishing, a touch up with white paint and bob's your uncle. The angled bracket or the non recessed EK mount would work nicely
