    Sweet dude. I think my next build will be open air and wall mounted. I am liking that design.

    I used a single stud TV wall-mount from home depot... https://www.homedepot.com/p/Commerc...ll-Mount-for-20-in-56-in-TVs-XD2473/300538011 easy work with a drill for pilot holes and a ratcheted socket set.

    If you're going to use an AIO cooler, due to the short tubing length you will need to buy the additional HD brackets for the case....but other than that, the case is very versatile. Good for heat dissipation with the front panel off

    I could probably do better with the exterior cables like get longer lengths and route them behind the case and down the middle but I'm too lazy about it for now. :p

    That is pretty nice. My only constructive criticism is the amount of back bleed on the lighting. Would be nice to see more of that lighting come through the motherboard to highlight the parts more. Love the clean presentation though.

    I have seen these MBs pop up more now, it's making me want to redo my system yet again and wall mount it.

    Very true, but I kinda use it as a source of ambient lighting for when I don't want to turn on the lights in the room. Moonlit room! :p

    I used Phantek's RGB fan shrouds daisy chained to Phantek RGB led strips and then connected to the RGB header on the board.

    Yeah the only thing is the cable esthetic ... Getting them into the wall with plates would be a home run. :)

    Bad ass setup, dude!

    I was thinking about that, but I'd be a little nervous making fist sized holes in my wall. If someone wants to come to my house and do it, that'd be cool with me as long as they can run it by the guard dog... :p
