    I'd thought about that, but look at the picture. There is a large capacitor in the way of doing the overhang thing. I'm not sure what you mean by the...

    Yes, I've watched that video. It is not totally clear, but I think he robbed screws from the motherboard somehow. I don't want to do that.

    I understand that, I think, but it seems that not all video cards support DirectX12. My current one, for instance.
