To reduce buzzing fans (and impress my art director clients) I am going to
attempt to build a computer wall so each motherboard,ps, disk sits on an L
bracket screwed onto the wall with the mb mounted vertically. The cpu fans
will run and a 2nd large but quite fan will sit in front of the motherboard
and blow gently on it.
I am using the ASUS microATX Motherboard (M2NPV-VM) $99.00 and AMD 64 Athlon
X2 with 2gb ram.
I needed some advice:
- Am I liable to have static, grounding, or radiation problems
since it is not mounted or shielded by metal?
- Is the cooling going to be sufficient? I am hoping the little
blower, very large distribution, and convection (up the wall) will cool it.
- Is anyone using this mb and proc? I will put SUSE10.1 on it and
wondered if anyone has done that?
- I hope to use the on-board graphics for my work station. Will I
need to put a more robust graphics card in it?
The downside will be the cabling and I hope to find a way to hide that.
