Hello,

I have the Lian Li PC-O11 and while it comes with a vertical mount for the GPU, you can't use the vertical mount if you have fans or a radiator on the floor of the case.

So I wanted to still have the vertical mount, and I wanted a radiator on the bottom.

So I purchased this bracket as the base for the PCIe riser card.
(UN)Designs Pump Z2-Bracket









I also got a dual PCIe slot for the card from Mountian Mods.

I needed to make the back plate next. I used 1/2 thick black plexiglass.


Made some measurements, started cutting. biggrin.gif

Like that thinking/modding which allows for the great display of the video card!

Thanks! I really like the way it looks now.
I will probably have to move to a pump reservoir combo because the case is still pretty tight between the edge of the card and the pump.

If not, this will limit the length of card I can use.

But the nice thing is that I no longer have to worry about the width of the GPU.

Would this work with the radiators/fans on the bottom using Lian-Li's own vertical gpu mount?

I think you would have to make some mods. The vertical expansion slots are located in a position that align with the card mounted on the floor of the case.

That being said, you may be able to just mod the back plate to hold the card above the rad and fans without attaching the PCIe extension to the rad and fans.

I have seen mods on other cases where the bottom of the card was not secured by anything, and the card was just held in place at the expansion slot.
(does that make sense?)
I found this online.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

OK, found this too.

Jsunn, I know I messaged you earlier (some months earlier) but I finally am going to be receiving my Lian LI PC-011. I definitely want a bottom radiator though and I definitely want to do a vertical GPU mount. I was wondering now that you have finished your build if you were to do it again if you would do anything differently? I have never modded such an expensive case and yeah wondering if anybody has figured out an easy way to achieve it?
