So I ordered the NZXT h510 elite, which comes with a vertical gpu mount. With the gpu I've heard runs pretty hot running vertical. I've never seen anyone try to safely drill holes near the where the gpu fans meet near the glass. Does anyone think this will increase air flow to the gpu? And what pci riser should i get for this case?

mounting vertical usually is not a good idea for air coolers unless there is a decent gap. It really depends on case pressure if it is worth it for you or not. Drilling holes will just provide a spot generally for air to escape rather than enter the system.

I'll just have to wait for the case to come in to find out. It's a fairly small card, being a PowerColor RedDragon RX 5700 XT being one of the smaller 5700 XT's. I'll keep this updated over the next week.

Should always check up hardwarecanucks and gamers nexus especially for case reviews.

They just voted the P400A as the best of 2019. Lol, I was deciding between that, the NR600 and H510 but went with H510 in the end due to looks. Well, not too bothered I guess
