I know a few people who have their hardware out mounted on a wall with no casing or anything. They actually say that their rigs with enclosures get more dust than the other and cleaning is alot easier aswell.

Wow that's really inteseting. A similar thought popped into my head, having a designated space in which to mount each part w/ ample room from one another. You could get really creative with that, especially with different intentions. But unless I had an easy way to pack it up [like putting a snap down box on top for transportation] I don't think I could do something like that at this time. I usually need to transport this baby from one place to another at least a couple times a year... WHAT IF ya know?

make sure nothing can enter the case.

ex) a pet if your computer case is on the ground, given you have a pet.

other than that i can only think of dust.
