Hey guys!
First time here, actually made the profile just for this question.

Im gonna build my own computer but when I started thinking, keep in mind that this is all new to me, and realize that the motherboard will be needed to be mounted in a special way so that it wont shortcut or something like that.
The case I'm gonna create is a mix of Aluminium and Perspex/Plexiglass where the thought is to put the motherboard on the aluminium plate.

For info Im planing on putting in this motherboard: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/gigabyte-g1sniper-3-inte...

Thx for your time :)

Just as in a storebought case...use the standoffs to hold it away from the aluminum plate.

For the simplicity I'm thinking of getting a old case and cut out the panel and make it fit to the acrylic, so that will be enough? It will be perfectly safe?

Is it possible to make this lay down (instead of standing up as in normal towers) whit out any hardware are beeing damaged?

Yes and yes.
A PC case is literally just a metal box with removable sides, and mounting places for various things. The main thing you have to watch for is airflow.
