  1. Hello HP Support, I would like to know 2 things before I buy, first, does this case have a 4 slot GPU? And can this case support a GPU upgrade to the Zotac 1080 TI AMP Extreme Graphics Card? Thanks.

  2. Is there a Thunderbolt header on this motherboard? Is it a Tampa motherboard with 270 chipset?

  3. How do I get the retaining bracket if I upgrade my GPU? The RX 580 that came with my Omen doesn't need the bracket but if I upgrade to a larger card I might need it. Is it safe to install a longer card without the bracket?
