RTX 4090 Vertical GPU Mounting Suggestions & Help Request


Recommended Posts

Hello, I plan on buying myself a nice NVIDIA RTX 4090 for a build I'm working on.  I was planning on either getting  the ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 OC Edition model graphics card or the ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 AMP Extreme AIRO model graphics card for my rig.  I haven't decided yet, it's a coin flip, but that's not the point.  I was looking into Cooler Master's Vertical Graphics Card Holder Kit V3 and I was wondering what else I'd need in order to get my GPU mounted vertically.  I also wanted to know if I even should for my Corsair 5000D Airflow Case.  I am the kinda person who likes aesthetics > performance which is why I wanted to vertically mount my GPU when I get it.  But what else should I look into for this GPU mounting system and what kind of adapters should I get for my Corsair ATX 3.0 HX1500i PSU, if I even need one.  I don't know much about vertical GPUs but it sounds like a fun option for my overkill rig.  Any advice and information would be great!  Thanks in advance.

5000D is not going to work for you it only has 2 slot riser you need 4 slot for a 4090 there are a few cases that you can turn all the back slots to an up position but you really have to look for one most only have 2 slots 😞

Yeah the vertical riser option was scrapped in favor of the Corsair GPU anti sag bracket and 9 tile triangle nodes instead.  I checked the math on it before I pulled the trigger bruh.  Don't worry about the V Riser.  If I ever get a 7000 series or an obsidian series case, then I might do a vertical mount.  Until then, that idea was scrapped half a year ago when I got my 4090 and realized how dummy thicc this thing was.   I even went "damn, no vertical risers this Gen huh?"

If your case has fully open PCI, you may be able to use a 3rd party mount that exits there...

Don't really know what that means but I've scrapped the idea since this post in favor of using the 4090 in it's stock position.  My case won't fit it properly as it's too close to the glass to be efficient in terms of cooling.  If I get a larger case next year or so, I'll definitely relook into the option.

when you remove the PCI slot covers on the case, some are completely open, and some still have steel separators between each slots.

If it's fully open, you can have vertical mounts that fit your GPU there vertically. It sits close to the motherboard so you have tons of clearance for airflow.

Yeah don't think I'll have enough airflow in a 5000D case.  I barely have enough as is for my 4090 regularly.  Probably not a good idea to v-mount it then if airflow is restricted.  Especially for a 4090 where temps are everything.
