Components within a computer server are generally laid out with a balance of electrical, mechanical, power, and thermal requirements. In most cases, the thermal limit of every downstream component is affected by the preheat of components in its direct upstream airflow path. Supporting different form factor components also requires compromises in one or more of the facets listed above. The disclosed invention, an air duct assembly and a supporting bulkhead bracket, addresses the problem of supporting low profile (LP) GPU PCIe cards in full length full height (FLFH) double wide GPU card slots laid out in series of each other.
