Hi,
Can I mount a rezer core x egpu vertically to a rack ?  This setup could cause some issue to graphic card ? I need to do that because I don't have space in horizzontal. 
I would like to pierce the case and the attach it with bolts

Thanks

What does air intake and exhaust of your vertically mounted eGPU look like?

Honestly I doubt it would cause any issues, I'd ask Razer if they advise against it, it weighs almost 15 lbs. (6.8 kg) though so you'd need to make sure. My setup is probably overkill, but it works for me., I have mine on rack shelving, something you'd see in the laundry room. It's horizontal but it has maximum air flow.

Hi, do you think that a box with only the front part opened can be ok or can I have the problem with the air flow ?

thx

@daniele_pugliese, Did you end up doing this? Where were you able to drill into the base of the Razer Core X? I've been trying to find a safe place to do so, so I can rack mount it with a shelf and bolts.
