    anyone know where I can find a wall mount for a full tower? This is the case I would like to mount on my wall next to my desk. SILVERSTONE RAVEN RV02-BW Matte black 0.8mm Steel ... I was thinking about doing a shelf off the wall but was wondering if anyone else has done something like this?

    Yeah, that's my main issue is the weight! I just want my tower off the ground. I have a pitbull puppy running around causing havoc! :laugh:

    I say run to the local home store and grab a pair of shelf/L Brackets, and some pre-coated particle board shelving. As long as you are hitting studs and the brackets are rated for the weight it shouldn't really be an issue, unless you cant find studs (as in live in a brick or concrete house) or you cant work a ratchet or cordless drill;)

    I'm with Sneeky, it'll probably be best to go and hardware store and grab some stuff that can hold it, or make your own wooden brackets, with a "holder" that will keep the case on the "legs" forever in a day.. Hmm, let me see if I can find something I'm thinking of..

    Have a look around for a HIFI rack. With enough looking around you should find one that will support a few PCs and some other gear.

    What kind/size of desk are you using out of curiosity?

    When I was doing construction in my home office I grabbed a cheap little corner bookshelf/corner piece thing. I am 99% sure I got it from target. There are all kinds of little desks/tables you can use to elevate your tower, although a wall mount will look cool.

    Don't mind the mess but I just went the simple route and used a bracket system and a board I had laying around.

    Ah that brings me back... I remember ages ago, before I found TPU, I was having issues with a firewall magically lagging me during online play... someone told me I forgot to tighten my lag screw. :D
