    I have a gpu in mb pcie slot 0, and want to connect another gpu to slot 2 via a 20cm thermaltake pcie riser so i can separate the gpus for better cooling (gtx 1080's).

    The old coolermaster tower i have has 7 (i think) pcie slots so there is room to mount the gpu horizontally (orthogonal to mb) below the mb.

    Has anyone done this? I think i can figure out how to make a bracket for the rear of the gpu (rear as in where the video ports are), but how to support the other end of the card or the base of the card?

    Have you checked out Coolermaster's GPU vertical mount kit? You can find this at big retailers

    I ended up making a horizontal bracket out an old hd mount and aluminium angle. It sits below the mb so will have good separation between gpu's.

    Yes

    Take a look over mnpctech as well, Bill's brackets are very well designed and made.

    mnpctech - yeah great but jeez $$$ eh.
    Plus there seem to be at least 4 different designs and not clear what each does/accomplishes.

    I have a question though about the riser cables which would be required to connect to the mobo.
    How to ensure that a decent cable is purchased that won't be lossy for card performance.
