    Technically it's fine.. feeding the GPU and AIO..

    I'm partial to vertical mounts .. so gonna see what my case looks like - not a necessity as I do ITX ... but WTH

    I do have a vertical mount but then I added 2 bottom fans so can't use it now.

    You need a strong one as the cheap weak ones just don't really work very well. I would have perhaps chosen something like these:

    Bitspower Custom GPU Graphics Card Anti Sag Support Bracket (various colours) | eBay
    Bykski B-GPU-BT GPU Weight Support Bracket - Silver 5060684860388 | eBay
    Custom Engraved Logo Barrow GPU Support Graphics Card Sag Nvidia MSI GTX Bracket | eBay

    What's the concern about acrylic?

    I think you will be fine on the acrylic since it's 5mm. I would loosen your main screws, hold the card up slightly then tighten the bracket to hold it up and then re-tighten your main screws. That should put less stress on the bracket.

    Sometimes installing the bracket with the case laying down can be easier. Can be a bit fiddly upright.

    Thanks for the advice.

    It along with my HB Bridge was my tactic for two 1080's at the time and it worked really good.

    My latest incarnation of my Photo-editing/gaming rig. Added a second 1440- monitor (Viewsonic though it really isn't up-to-snuff for photo-editing - EIZO CG2730 for that). Need to get some new photos of the innards, as quite a number of updates there.

    I have found with multiple slot boards with more than one screw to secure them,. that holding it in position you want while tightening the screws works well.
