I want to do one whereby I put all of the boards and expansion cards into picture frames and mount it on the wall. Mind you, I'll need some heavy-duty shelves for the redundant power supplies...

I started working for my employer in late 2006. In early 2007, I finally decided to do something about the server room I inherited. Here's the before pic:

Haha, yes... Official explanation from SharkTECH:
The reason is simple the system had a PSU failure and since it's a miniATX atom box, we were testing to make sure it's the PSU since we were out of Atom cases. We had the system in the cardboard box so it would not short circuit to test with a new psu.

I think as a customer having your system up and working would be more important then it being pretty, so instead of waiting for 3-4 days until the new shipment of PSUs get in.
