View 27 + Vertical Video Card + Warping = ???

Recommended Posts

I fell in love with the View 27 almost instantly when I saw it. I knew my next build was going to be in it. So, I built a new rig, bought the riser cable, all that fun stuff.

 

The build looks fantastic, however, when I mounted my video card with the riser, has plenty of clearance. When the card heats up, and the fans kick on, it starts sucking the softened plexiglass inwards, causing my fans to scuff the case (I immediately switched over to directly on the motherboard after).

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on how combat this problem? Removing the scuffs are a separate issue, but fixable. I just want my card peeping out the side, one of the main reasons I got the case.

I am noticing this same issue. What did you end up doing?

I would suggest getting air moving around the area. Place a fan in the case so it's blowing fresh air between the panel and GPU. Other than that, don't use the rise and mount the GPU normally. I know it defeats the purpose, but plastic, when it gets hot, gets soft.

What are temps like with it mounted vertically vs normal? I never mounted mine there because I figured there wouldn't be enough airflow and planned on waiting til I could afford to do liquid cooling. Didn't even think about it messing with the window.

Same problem here with the View 28, Thermaltake shoukd really have marketed it as vertical for watercooled gpus only.. Espeically with a plastic side panel.

Such a shame.. If there was someone who could create a new side panel made from glass.. That be cool..
