Depending on your usage scenario, you might need to install one of below GPU air baffle filler or add-on GPU air baffle to enhance the thermal performance of GPUs:

When the GPU air baffle is used, but a riser card is not installed with a GPU adapter, install this filler on the GPU air baffle.

If a single-wide FHFL GPU adapter is to be installed on slot 1, 4, or 7, but the adjacent slot (2, 5, or 8) is left empty or installed with a half-length adapter, install this add-on air baffle on the GPU air baffle first.

If the adjacent slot (2, 5, or 8) is installed with a low-profile Ethernet adapter that use an active optical cable (AOC), the power of the AOC cable must be limited to 2.5 W or lower.
