    That looks kinda cool but nerdy.
    I wonder what his PCI-E extender is doing for his video card in terms of latency.
    Other than that, it looks like he has a fairly expensive system.

    Pretty clever. It actually looks quite good I think with the neon etc, plus reduces the need for cooling fans so it runs quieter.

    I don`t think heat is really an issue becasue its is completely open and the heat probably disperses fairly quick.

    It would be a pain to insert a cd or USB

    He probably only needs a stock heatsink on his CPU because it`s in open air and not boxed up with other hot components.

    That`s cool. I had a similar setup a couple of years back but couldn`t get a dece3nt enough flixi riser for the graphics card. Cooling isn`t really easier though, as the lack of airflow over components meant you needed really good fans on the cards, CPU etc to be pretty good. A great effort, looks tidier than mine did.

    Been there, done that. Not only is it easier to keep clean and swap out parts, but it allows much better air flow than if it were in a case.

    You`d think this would work well. The problem is that exposure to air doesn`t help much with cooling the parts--air is a thermal insulator. To get proper cooling, you need MOVING air. Standard case designs provide a wind-tunnel effect to maximize air cooling. With the wall mount, you lose that, so you`d either need a lot of extra fans, or else some hidden cooling system (perhaps liquid cooling through the back side of the mount?)

    comp_wizard - You don`t a lot of extra fans. You just need to make sure that the ones on the GPU, CPU and Chipset are good, I had that in my setup which was similar to this and it worked well, even under heavy load.

    henryhendrix - Dust buildup isn`t any worse and the added bonus is you can blow out any dust regularly as you see it rather than it quietly building up in the case unseen.

    Just about every computer geek has done this at least once, or at the least CONSIDERED it... Its awesome to prevent overheating and it keeps the parts clean of too much dust (as was previously stated, its easier to remove dust when its not settling inside a closed case).

    If you have dust getting into your computer case, then you`re doing something wrong. You can buy a fan filter for $3 from Newegg.

    Wouldn`t it get more dusty outside of the case? I guess it would make upgrading your parts pretty easy though...

    Just about every computer geek has done this at least once, or at the least CONSIDERED it

    Yes, but not for any practical reason. Just for fun, usually. Sometimes as a teaching aid.

    Its awesome to prevent overheating

    No, it isn`t. Airflow can be more controlled in a case and it`s airflow that does the cooling. The constriction of a case can, if done right, increase airflow in comparison with open air.

    it keeps the parts clean of too much dust (as was previously stated, its easier to remove dust when its not settling inside a closed case).

    That`s true, especially with a vertical wall mounting, but the downside is that more dust will fall on it than on a cased PC. A cased PC with even the cheapest filtration will have far less dust falling on it that this would. I don`t clean mine more than once a year and it only ever has a little dust on some parts.
