    Ok, I have alwasy wanted to mount a computer on a wall and now I have my chance. I just got a motherboard from a friend (free), its a gigabyte socket 775 but it only takes 2GBs of memory total (all RAM slots can only have a max of 512MB each.) So, I am going to mount it on a piece of wood, connect one of the PSUs, hard drives, fans and other stuff i have lying around to it. Then I plan on buying 512mbs of ram, a terrible graphics card and the lowest end processor possible on a 775.

    I really just want to do this for fun, i can't really answer you if you ask "why are you doing this".

    I will post some pictures soon! Hopefully it will be cool, and if the right person comes along mabey i can sell it.

    Now you could put a big ass fan right next to it. Awesome air cooling.
