Vertical GPU Kits

was thinking about adding a vertical mount fro my gpu to my rig.

Was looking at this on Amazon:

Anyone have a vertical mount?

Are their any significant cooling benefits for the mobo, cpu etc.. as the gpu is farther from the mobo?

or perhaps heat doesn't rise as well b/c the gpu core isn't on top?

Rig is a tight build so I'm not entirely sure if it would look better or not

My GPU is mounted vertically and I don't have any issues or benefits from doing it.

Really the only issue with vertical mounting is for air cooled cards that get mounted too close to the side panel and you lose the ability to plug anything else into your motherboards PCI slots. Since you're watercooled the heat won't matter.
Other than that, there really isn't any benefit to it other than looks.
