I realised soon after that propping GPUs on tilt to vent the hot air just wasn't going to cut it.

This design allows me to set a number of GPUs next to a desktop rig with no need to fabricate mining rig frames.

Useful for those mining on smaller scale with just a couple additional GPUs and not a full blown 5 or 6 GPU setup.

In the picture is a 3 GPU rig, 1 card in chassis and 2 outside on the GPU vent stand.

Future model for mounting on vertical board to be added soon.

Hope you find this useful :)

Up Plus










Printed with full infill but I am sure it will be fine at 90%.
Print using ABS as the card vent does get warm.

It works great :)

However, I would like to do some modifications to fit it into my rig.

Could you please share the edit file?

Many thanks.

I think these GPU coolers are designed to push air in through the fan, and out the IO side. It would be somewhat more efficient to have your stand upside down. This is because the less dense hot air that you pump out the bottom will rise up and some will go back into the system though the fan. By having it upside down you will get more cooler air coming into the GPU and therefore cooler temps when mining.

Really hard to print.

Consider turning it on it's side or even upside down before printing.

Rafts and Supports did little to reduce edge curl.
