    Looks nice! Would you do a review on those cases pretty please?

    They look nice, but nearly 20L for an 'ITX' case? That's enormous! Particularly as it doesn't look like you could fit a full length GPU even with the drive cage removed (max length 190mm).

    Is it just me, or does the idea of wall mounting a case for "display" purposes not seem a bit flawed? Sure, it'll look nice if you don't plug anything into it, but as soon as you've connected up power, display, speakers, etc it'll look like the proverbial dog's dinner. Too many wires :D

    Judging from the picture the IO-shield will not be at the back of the case but hidden behind a panel. presumably routed out of the right side. You can route the cables behind the wall or under your desk to hide them. But yeah, opportunities for cable management will make or break the case.

    A Decade or so ago, there was talk that a VGA Riser Card would hamper the bus stability between the chipset and the graphicscard.

    Now we don't really have a chipset anymore, but still, would a riser like this have an influence on CGU-GPU communications? (as it should influence signal transit time and add a second contact resistance)

    a bit of trunking would tidy it up nicely
