For better airflow, of course.From the article said:However, the question is, why vertical-mount the GPU if the side panel covers up most of it?
Then again people who care about performance should steer clear of this case to begin with. It basically does not have front intake fans so the ability to vertical mount a GPU in a volcano like environment seems a bit moot to begin with. For the uninitiated, a large pane of glass in front of 3 120mm fans leads to practically zero airflow with only small plastic slots on the sides.For better airflow, of course. Believe it or not, there are people who care more about the performance of their system than the visuals.
