Default no case

is it dangerous to run a computer not in a case? i have a wood table covered in venyl (sp?) and would it be safe to just lay the motherboard on there and use it?

i wouldn't leave it on the vinyl bc of hotspots that could melt or warp the plastic, but a wooden table is fine

I ran mine inside my motherboard box for awhile while troubleshooting it. I definitely wouldn't set it directly on vinyl as there will be hotspots as others have said.
