Powerbar in stand or in another room?

I have a 60G cube tank and a 24x24 wooden stand that I'm using. There's a 30G sump inside the stand so it doesn't have much room after putting in all equipment in the sump.

Fortunate enough I have a room next to the tank so I cut out a big hole in the drywall so I can mount the Apex in the other room, along with power bar and all electrical outlets. The circuit where Apex is plugged into, it's GFCI protected.

I run a dry loop for all wires coming from the sump to the other side of the wall. I'm not sure if this is better way to go to hide all electrical outlets? I see a lot of sump setup where all electrical outlets are in the sump area as well.
