MasterFrame 700 on a wall

Open air, wall mounted build featuring the Cooler Master MasterFrame 700.
Im very satisfied with this personal build, but there's always room for improvement.

Preparation work:
All cables between the pc and the rest go through electrical boxes hidden behind the case and the main monitor in order to get the cleanest look possible.
I personally did all the wall breaking (brick wall) and refilling, electrical wiring, then repainted with a special sand effect gold paint
Initially i used the vesa mount behind the case to hang the pc, but then switched for more safety to 2 threaded rods (originally meant for wall hung toilets) inserted into chemical wall plugs (rated for 80 kg minimum).

The pc:
The new i7-12700 is cooled through a custom loop, the liquid is mayhems x1 orange (premixed) a little less then 1 liter.
I'm using the gtx 1080 from my previous build until it's worth (personally) to upgrade, probably next gen, the plan is to put a second 240mm radiator below the psu on the left and expand the cooling loop. Did not want to invest in a waterblock for the 1080 for this (hopefully short) time.
All the storage is from my previous pc and is mounted behind the left wing.
I had to drill the upper part of the left wing to put the psu in that position.
I noticed that the pc looked too dark at night, but instead of led strips i went with small single white led lighting (0.5 watt each) directly soldered into a molex cable, there are 7 currently strategically positioned around.
Still unsure on what to put on the left wing for the time being

Future:
-currently looking around for something to put on the left wing
-wall mounting second monitor, custom made mount necessary since does not have vesa supports
-hide mounting screws although they are not very visible already
-M2 ssd would be nice but not really necessary
-4000 series gpu? and second part of liquid loop
-who knows what the future might bring
