Default no vid card, is it safe to test my comp on/off without any damage?

sorry if this is kinda spam, but I just got my Nxzt lexa together and want to see it glow, i think all the psu's hooked up, mobo and hdd and dvd drive, will any of the parts be affected if I turn it on and just pull the plug to turn it off?( it has this normal 4 pin connector on the mobo that says it regulates power to components, in the manual it says for sli, its called like "ez plug", but it cant hurt to plug it in any way, right?)
this is one **** of a computer case,especially with that huge chrome heat pipe you can see from a mile away

now that i can actually sit back and look at it, it reminded me i just could of hooked in the psu first and just pluged in the led fans, but o well.

It shouldn't harm anything ... and I just finished a build with the Lexa. When I first opened the box, I didn't like it ... but after it's built and running, I'm in love with it. But, you'll find yourself wiping it down a lot.
