Yup that's how to do it basically as mentioned above ^. Added dangers may be extended to how much dust is around also, as it can just rest on it without any fans and stuff to help blow it away.how would i use my computer if i had all of the parts and no case, just lay it out on a piece of cardboard and go? are there any dangers? all idears and surrgestions are welcome
Don't think it would heat up in that aspect, it should run fine. Just take a bit extra caution of the surroundings, keeping it away from dust; moving it around or making any sudden shifts.thanks, is there a amount of time where this becoms unhealthy, what about the underside of the mobo heating up? my case is arriving in about a week so i intend to run it on a desk untill it arrives
If you had the anti-static bag/paper thing it came in, you could use that. To me it should work fine no matter koinonas has some good points. I once did this, on tile though, which is worst than you got there...an it all worked fine, kept it so for a couple of days lol. Fully functioning and connected to the net also. Might be different though now, not sure how the parts are now-a-days. I experimented with this like 5 years ago.do you think it would be best if i got rid of the bit of cardboard and just had it on the table, also i am using this as my computer for the next week, so i was even considering gaming but now im not to sure, any advice, is there a way to discharge the parts, is static really a problem???
The gear the is being used is:
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4
GPU: Galaxy Nividia 8800GT 512MB the thing the is attached to it is a new big-*** heatsink and a fan
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (just the min speed)
crappy hard drive...
