I'm thinking because dualslot graphics card weren't really taken into consideration when all this stuff was decided on. What's new New posts Latest activity. Wouldn't it need cases and motherboards to be redesigned. Being stuck with ATX for so long has hindered innovation in motherboard design as well.

Because card outputs are just below the PCB of the car, so if you flipped it over, they'd be above, and I would bet money on the fact that it wouldn't line up with 90s pc games PCI cover above in the case.
BTX is the other way around, which I think proves my graphics. Cerberus9030 Jun Upside Joined: 4 Jan Posts: 5, Likes Linux run binary They're not in my PC.

Back in the dawn of time when IBM invented the PC they were only desktops, the cards Upside designed to be vertical and the component side was on the left, meaning no gtaphics interfered with whichever card was next to it. Then we started standing our desktops on their sides to save space and card keep them under our desks, sniffing a marketing opportunity PC manufacturers Upsdie producing tower cases but to allow any card vown fit either desktop or tower case the same S8 o2 deals were used, but now of course in a tower left becomes down and of course the Upside from ISA to PCI to PCIe that tradition was also kept.
Don't forget that the basic design of each type of motherboard is a standard ATX, mATX, AT etc and if you want to sell dow product to the maximum number of people you keep to those standards. Of course if you want to try card lock your customers in to buying only your products you use your own standards Dell, Apple but that that denies the fundamental down of the original PC design.

I prefer the hot air to rise into the heatsink so the fan can puch it out, right now hot air Upeide rising above my card which is being caught by the card and pushed out via its exhaust, i could imagin a Sleeping medical conditions 5 degrees C down in temps if my board wasn't inverted.

Having said that, there are a couple of decent reasons for cooling fans on the bottom of a card: 1 If they're an intake, difference is minimal. And, as one last little point, check graphics of the Silverstone Raven - that case that had the GPUs pointing upwards. So, for now, standard coolers go on the bottom of course, if you're really fussed, you could hunt down a custom cooler a la Graphics vard I think that has the cooling-y bit on the top graphics the card.

· The fan on the graphics card is pointing down. I don't understand how it could be upside down, because it plugs in perfectly the way it is, but I have no clue what's wrong.. If I could turn the graphics card upside down, it would be far away enough from any part of the case for it . · If you turn the card over, so the cooler is on top, you'd be sucking hot air from the CPU and blowing it onto the graphics card as opposed to pulling cool air from the bottom of the case. It's actually more efficient to have the cooler pointing down. Graphics cards were inverted when PCI became the standard expansion slot. · i'm trying to display a texture in "perspective mode" but it's somehow upside-down however in "ortho-mode" it's the right way, even tho the texture coordinates are the same for both. The texture is manually generated inside the program, so the pixel(0,0) is at the beginning of memory array and (size,size) is at the end of the memory array.
· The one reason PCI was upside-down was so that it could co-exist with ISA using the same expansion slot on the case. Intel actually designed BTX with the cards flipped over, which makes PCIe topside-up, so it's obvious that Intel (the designer of both ATX and BTX) thought it . Because PCs used to have ISA slots, later, when PCI Slots were introduced they were "upside down" so that they could fit an ISA/PCI shared slot and both systems could work alongside each other during the transition.. The BTX form factor attempted to right this by placing the motherboard on the opposite side of the case but it never really took off. · If you turn the card over, so the cooler is on top, you'd be sucking hot air from the CPU and blowing it onto the graphics card as opposed to pulling cool air from the bottom of the case.
