First off, I skimmed through your response and read that your wanting to mount this to a brick/cement/block wall. This requires that you drill holes in the wall using a masonry bit. Then you hammer anchors into the holes that will give you a way to hold screws. This is easy if you have the tools and have done it before. Not so much for a first time effort.

Next, a motherboard needs to be mounted to a backplate. This is the metal piece inside the case. It is for several reasons. One--- the screws provide a ground connect to the plate and help prevent static discharges into the board. Not all screws are grounded, some are insulated. The screws and the backplate provide physical support for the board. It helps prevent the board from flexing when stress is applied to it. This flexing can break components loose and cause them to become un-soldered and thus make the board fail.

The set up in your picture is not really intended to be wall mounted, it has no place to run screws through. What you are talking about can be done but the way to do it is to mount everything onto a board, like plywood, and then mount that to the wall. Pretty complicated.

I used to do a lot of case modding with all the lights and UV cables and windows in the cases and stuff. It was cool for a little while but the problem is the computer goes obsolete in a few years and all that work then is down the drain. I made one with special water cooling using UV reactive coolant and clear tubing and a large window on the side. With the UV tubes installed the entire case glowed and the window even had a glowing effect. It looked really great but people didn't understand it. I had some ask how I kept all the water in the case --- they thought that water cooling meant that the entire thing was filled with water. Standing back and trying to take a uneducated look at it, it did kind of look like something from a nuclear reactor with that glow of being underwater. That computer lasted about 3 years. Then the socket design was changed and my water cooling block didn't fit and then the new boards didn't have enough room in the case. It is sitting on the floor along with the rest of the dead stuff now. I suppose in 3 years when you quit using this one it might look interesting hanging on the wall. But not many people are into computers as art.

If it is heavy and your wall is gypsum and stud do not use lag bolts like these:

These lag bolts only hold to the gypsum and can pull out, lag bolt or screw to the studs.

If the wall is brick, block, or concrete I like to use these sleeve anchors:

With these you can drill through the backing with a mason bit and bolt right through the backing to the wall.

The "rods" holding the "glass"(likely lexan) are called "standoffs". These are likely to have been specially machined, judging by their diameter

I think I know who you're talking about. If you'd ask questions that make sense...

1. No idea how much your PC is going to weigh

2. No ideas what sort of a wall your going to fix it to.

3. Screws come in many sizes, materials and gauges all make a difference.

4. No idea how kind of attachments you have to hand to make sure the screws stay in the wall.

5. No idea what you mean by "any kind of a mount"

6. By FAR the people here who give their time to answering questions do so for free. We don't get paid for our time, effort, years of design skills and knowledge. We rarely get thanks or even acknowledgement for that effort yet we still persist in trying to help people like you. IF you want realistic help then try offering realistic information on which we can base our opinion.

For many questions the poster can better serve themselves with a little online research.

7. Years of experience and knowledge is worth far more then 10 Cents worth of enthusiasm. Most of us took more time to gain that knowledge than you have been alive. Don't knock old people,

1. the weight will be around 5-8 kgs.

2. about he wall i don't know about how many types they are...... but one thing for sure i know that there is cement and bricks with a coating of white cement and paint

3. That's what i need to know, is it safe to let screws hold it ? , i don't want it to fall down.

4 . i don't know much about attachment and i want help for which ones are available and which one's to use.

5. by any kind of mount i mean , is any kind of mounts available to hold this thing up . brackets or any other stuff.......

sir, i respect everyone... and of course i am a beginner i don't know just everything....... no one taught me about gauges, mounts, and all that stuff till now....... i am new to all this and merely know about frequencies and other things...... and i am eager to learn ..... if i ask something on the community, it is for sure..... that i have ended up searching for hours on internet, asking friends and every person i know.... and then came here , i want help , suggestions and advices not someone's insults and comments....... about my face , or my ability. and if i need to face a negative comment every time i ask something then there is no difference between here and my indian school.
