Yes but you'll need to change out the evaporator head to a side mount head.

It can be used as is if you just make a good hold down, although a shim maybe necessary.
However, the flex line may not like this, same to your case. If you plan to get a second video card or expansion card in though, you'll want a new head on there.

Hmmm, my Mach 1 has a side mount evap head. I thought they came that way but I bought it used so perhaps not. I just use a rear backplate for some old air cooler to slid over the mount and a second backplate on the back of the GPU. Slide some bolts through both plates, through the card mounting holes and some springs for tension and works like a charm. wink.gif
