    Vertical GPU orientation - the sky's the limit??

    So was browsing around MNPCtech's site as you do, looking for inspiration (and all the things my wallet says no to) and noticed he's made some new GPU mounting brackets that mount to a 120mm fan mounting (used on the Star Wars build recently). Got me thinking about how changing orientation of your expensive gpu is such a easy mod to show it off to full effect, and also a few ideas for next build (crossfired watercooled Polaris hanging from the top radiator mounts anyone?).

    To me it's nice to have the option to put the gpu somewhere other than the pcie area and opens up some fun tubing routes. Not everyone's got access to a metalshop to repurpose pcie mounts (or wants to cut their $$ case up).

    This giving anyone else tingles of inspiration? Front-mounted GPU for a VR-box maybe?

    Maybe someone can provide some insight, but doesn't the use of an additional cable add latency to the GPU?

    I could be wrong, or the difference may be negligible so it may not matter much.

    Anyone know?
