The motherboard I have has a built in on and reset switch at the top right.

Oh I get it, stupid me wink.gif
But is it possible to do something familiar with a motherboard without a on/reset switch?

I love this. I've thought about a wall mount build before and seeing this makes me want to do it soon. The only thing I'd change about the OP's build is I'd stack all the drives (as best as possible) and compress the size of the whole thing, maybe reducing the space between all the parts too.

I love this build have really gotten me thinking about where I want to go with my next build. Was just wondering you made the triangle cut into the bottom of the acrylic? Also how flexible are the 3m PCI-E risers in terms of moving side to side instead of just up and down? Also were the standoffs alone enough space for the backplate to be fitted or did you need to cut a hole in the acrylic for that?

The triangle cut at the bottom of the acrylic is to reflect the light to the edges. Without that cut, the LED would project the light straight through the panel instead of going to the edges.
The 3M risers doesn't move side to side very well without kinking. But the cable is designed to be folded like paper, so you can make corners and sharp turns with it.
Don't really understand your third question.. The standoffs threads into the acrylic, just as it threads into a regular motherboard tray.

Just realized I forgot how in the first question. Did you use a router with a 90 degree tip or something?
Also so if I were to get 2 290x's and run them in crossfire, one on the left and right sides of the motherboard, do you think that I would be able to achieve that with the cables?

Nice work!!! Just wondering since you have so many HDDs and SSDs is it very noisy? Also where would you be able to plug in a external usb, like a flash drive?

Since all the components on the board is pretty much silent, the HDDs are definitely audible. But not to a point where it becomes distracting.
I run several USB extensions to USB hubs on my desk.
