Description

Wall Mounted PC Upgrades: Just finished upgrading to the Asus Maximus IX Code & i7-7700K. Wanted to refresh everything and post my thoughts. I wiring on my upgrades went extremely well since there are no SSD's or DVD/BR Drive cables to route. I also picked up some cable combs which look nice. I have one gripe and don't see a fix. The Thermaltake Logo is upside down on the CPU. It doesn't fit any other way. I do like the RGB Lighting on all the parts. Enjoy!

OLD POST Hey everyone, I decided to build a Wall Mounted PC utilizing the Thermaltake Core P3 case. I basically used the existing Hardware from my Fragbox Build in the Corsair Air 540. Anyway this was a real test of my Cable Management skills with no actual case modding going on. I suppose the theme is a Nice Clean Build, with new Glass Desk and serious cable hiding going on. I routed the PC Cables through the wall and back out just even with the desk. I hid Cat5 Cable across the walls with cable hiding tracks.

The build turned out real nice, enjoy the pic's.

That's my TAZ Pencil Sharpener. He was doing double duty until my Satechi Holder arrived. Thanks..

How easy or hard was wall mounting? Were all the needed items included?

Wasn't to hard since I have an unfinished wall on the otherside. I had to order a TV Mount, there are quite a few that are compatible.

No, had to purchase the TV - Mount. The other side of the wall is unfinished work room so relatively easy to hide cables and mount. Thanks

That is gorgeous! I want to do a similar build with the P3 case, but is it me or does the upside down Thermaltake symbol on the cpu cooler drive you nuts?

Little bit but really the only way it would fit. Wish I had longer hoses.

I've never seen a wall-mounted PC before, but its a great idea and I think you've executed it extremely well. Very clean and looks fantastic. Quick question: what cable hiding tracks have you used?

I picked them up at Lowes here's the link. http://www.lowes.com/pd/Mono-Systems-Inc-0-75-in-x-120-in-White-Cord-Cover/3550014

Thanks, I also was inspired with some custom Wall Mounted PC's I seen online and then saw these cases and said Hell Yea!

Nice build, but I think, you can do better with the cables on the left, maybe then them together with some zip ties

Love it, when I finally move out Im hoping to do a similar thing for a HTPC/gaming rig. Be a while yet tho +1

This rig looks awesome. Especially in dark with the Ambilight-like glow :)

This might be a dumb question, but what do you gain from having two video cards?

  • 39 months ago

Depends on what you are using them for I suppose. There has been some reviews and articles out if you have 2, 3, & 4 GPU's do they actually improve performance. Check some of these sites out. https://www.youtube.com/user/paulshardware

I got two of them because I could and wanted to try SLI. I wouldn't use Highend GPU's like the 1080's in SLI.

SLI. It allows you to gain up to 100% more performance (frames) in games. BUT, that usually isn't the case, typically you get roughly 75% more performance.

Compressed Air and Brush, haven't actually had to clean it yet just completed last week. We have no pets so that helps some. Thanks

That's pretty nice! Almost like a test bed on a wall. I'd love to have that accessibility to tinker with it whenever, and still have it look good.

Absolutely awesome build mate. Solid effort. Always wanted a wall mounted PC, and this is what I had in mind. Great job.

It's a pretty nice case and if you have extra wall space go the P5 it's a little bigger. Thanks
