    i set up all my computers initially out of a case, to diagnose and test for problems. once i'm sure all the parts work, then i stuff it in a case so the kids don't stick their fingers in a fan or pull a wire out or spill horchata on it, oh wait that was me, :eek:

    rice juice :D

    no but srsly, it's a drink from rice, some vanilla, and other goodies typical of where it's made. in mexico they add some cinnamon.

    i usually eat at my desk, so i have to be very careful with drinks.

    you can control airflow better in a case than in open air, thats my story and if you water cooling you might aswell go with a case because it looks better lol

    Guess what? That's room. $70 case that protects everything and fits just about anything.

    Anyway, I'm off to sneeze on everyone's computer without a case. :p

    Not exactly a lot of room, they'd run fairly hot. Don't get me wrong, CM690 is an AWESOME case. I have a Pure Black one.

    I have the Pure Black as well. And with 5 120mm case fans, nothing gets above 40* C. And the 5870 is just a warm card, regardless of case cooling.

    If I had spent money on a case, I wouldn't be able to have afforded the HD5850. :eek:

    Mine has been in a case, and always will be.

    And you could have bought a dodgy PSU instead of a good one, and had a 5870.

    A decent PSU is essential though, a case isn't :p
