Default Running PC with....

Running pc with case open. Is there any problems with this? I know it cuts down the temp. I got to get a new case and wanted to know if anything could mess up leaving the case open. Plus it is easily accessible and looks better.

id say that as long as you have no cats, or kids in the area, no flying objects, and dont live in a dusty area, you should be fine.

I have my case opened at the moment, there's absolutely no harm in it, although as mentioned above, your computer becomes more liable to accidents and malfuctions.

Dust is the only concern, but with it open just spray a little can air into it about every other week and you should be ok.
