Exclamation The Crystal 570X RGB Mirror Black And It's Half Baked Vertical GPU Mount Support

Hi,

i bought the Crystal 570X RGB Mirror Black Case recently, and i noticed that it has an Option for a vertical GPU Mount. Unfortunately the Manual for the Case is the same as the one for the regular Version, leaving me with no Guidance on how to properly install the GPU in that Fashion. I'm aware that Corsair is not selling their own official Riser Cable at this Point, but i want to at least have a Word from a Company Representative, on what 3rd Party Riser Cable to use. The Problem that i have, is that almost all Riser Cables require the Base of the PCI-E Slot to be mounted to the Case with Screws, and there are no Screw Holes on Top of the PSU Shroud. As a Customer, i feel pretty left alone at this Point. I don't want to be forced to drill Holes in a 200$ Case, just because i wasn't provided with the proper Instructions or Accessories by the Manufacturer. I saw Employee's recommending the "Cooler Master Vertical Graphics Card Holder Kit" for Example, not knowing that there is no Point in buying that one, because unlike the regular Version of the 570X, the Mirror Black Special Edition, already comes with a dedicated Cutout for the GPU to hold on to. I hope that you Guys are able to help me out here.

Happy Holidays!
