    MM Extended Ascension MB position

    I ordered a few extra parts for my MM case that will give me the option to mount the MB horizontal or vertical. Not sure which way will allow a cleaner look as far as running tubes and wires. Anyone have a MM case that had the MB mounted both ways?

    I'm running mine in Horizontal. In the process of building. I installed my WBs yesterday and the package is DAMN heavy. Installing vertically is not going to be an option for me. I'll be running my tube later today and you can take a look at it. There are a couple of other MM Build Logs in the WC section so you can get some ideas.

    I think vertical gives you a better space behind the MB but horizontal is better if you have heavy components. I personally like the way the horizontal looks in the case.

    I'm going to start with it horizontal and see how it goes. I was leaning that way too.
