Computer on the wall? CRAZY?

Recommended Posts

I would just recess a medicine cabinet into the wall, replace the mirror with glass and mount the hardware onto the back wall.

 

Something like this could be easily modded for this idea.

If the motherboard is mounted on the wall and the PCI slots oriented so they are parallel to the studs in the wall, there wouldn't be much surface area for anything to rest on.

 

If it's built into the wall it would almost certainly be enclosed anyways.

+1 for what Reel said, except more like a inset wooden cabinet.

i have seen a guy place all his parts on his bedroom door..

 

When he opend it the pc automaticly turned on, when he left the room and used the outside lock the pc automaticly switched off aswell.

 

The door was limited to only open 90degress so the parts never hit a wall and it was also a door that didnt open to fast and then stop hard so the parts didnt just fly off.

 

i was realy impressed by it as it was totaly passive as it used the rooms air flow to cool.

Just an idea how graphically functional does this shave to be, would be much better looking and easier with onbaord (pants) graphics. And a slimline CPU HSF (reference maybe). If this goes ahead, a journal of your efforts would be a good read.

I have seen at least one like this somewhere.

 

it can be done, the trick is making it look good. It is on the list of things I want to try at some point.

I personally think it'd look cooler mounted on the wall rather than recessed.

 

Likewise.

 

Just don't go cheap on the mounting hardware. ;)

Not the same as wall mounting .... but this give me an idea:tooth:

 

Heck, maybe I have even seen it somewhere before ?

 

But ...... how about in an Aquaium ? you could put drive racks in there ... whatever !

 

Not just a regular Aquaium though ! one that is mounted in a wall, one that you can see from both sides !

 

uh ..... idk
