You have 10 seconds to explain why you wasted your money on a case for your pc
I don't like house fires.
I didn't. The guy I bought my CPU/mobo/RAM/cooler from threw it in for free.
Before that I was running in a cardboard box.
Because I can.
Jesus, I have Autism, but lord I'd rather be autistic than an idiot.
What are you stupid? cases are practically or literally free. you only ever will need 1 unless the world turns upside down and and ATX is abandoned. I have used the same case from my Gateway GP6-400 (a pentium 2!) for at lest 4 different builds.
I abandoned the case I used in my first build (back in 2007) because the large fans started dying, led's started dying, and I was pretty much ashamed of it...
No, I wasn't ashamed of the fans and led's dying, I was ashamed of the case itself at that point. I also hated how it illuminated my entire room at night if I left my computer on.
And if that's not what you meant then don't worry anon, I'm ashamed of a lot of my past decisions and contemplate suicide literally every day.
I've got a wifi card in my current desktop PC. I didn't want to crawl through the attic and wire my house for ethernet or have cables running along my baseboard/floor. The latency isn't bad at all and my router/wifi card allows for more bandwidth than my internet provides so...
Because cases can have stickers on them, and if there is one thing that can be said about stickers, it's that they make everything awesome by ten fold.
>background radiation and runaway electrons.
why not just build a cement case. You can even use an old case as a mold
Anyone build their own case and not be a fucking retarded about it like some off the previous pics?
Pic related, looks sexy as fuck
Obvious bait, but I'll bite.
>because I'm not a jackass and think about the inevitability of dust or cat hair getting on my motherboard and frying it on startup
>literally anything getting on motherboard can fry it on startup
You threw the whole fishing rod in on this one.
>no proper ventilation
>no protection from accidents like spilling water
>probably loud as fuck
>takes up a lot of space
Jesus Christ just fucking buy some cheap ass case and stop triggering me, faggot.
My shitbox cost less than a decent case, xeon are dirt cheap for 6 cores
im smarter than that senpai
Because my machine needs to comply to european laws concerning electromagnetic interference in an industrial environment.
I also prefer all parts contained in a metal box and not taking up room on my table.
you should be ashamed
have you ever experimented with an ATX PSU? it turns itself off in the fucking moment there is a short circuit, and you can only switch it back on after unplugging and waiting for the 1-2 min. safety lock. It's literally impossible to cause a fire with a computer.
>tfw got a fractal design 1000
>cheap and a e s t h e t i c
The only issue was that the stock front fan was too loud even on low rpm so I unplugged it. Air flow is a meme anyway :^)
>It's literally impossible to cause a fire with a computer.
Why would anyone force innocent fruits to such madness?
I'm ashamed of my species
B/c cheap af and putting things together with small screws satisfies me on a spiritual level.
Assuming the cement was poured on carefully and you waited for it to fully cure before attempting to turn on the computer, would this work? Like even for just enough time to boot up? I don't see why it wouldn't assuming you didn't get any cement in the hard drive.
This supposedly is a way to prevent data loss from theft. A very heavy PC might discourage thieves.
The 1st problem would be overheating which might be overcome with >>52599150
The 2nd and worst problem would be all that expansion and compression would crack the electronics inside, maybe not the HDD but the mobo would surely break.
A more plausible alternative that would also deflect most random radiation particles would be just building a big box of cement, like a vault with some air inlets, place the components inside and shut it from the top with a big piece of concrete, maybe with a locked latch like pic related. This would also effectively discourage theft.
but you can manage with being exposed to them so why bother? You also don't technically need a hood, just put some plastic over the internals. You don't need more than one car seat anyway. You can rent out the rest of the car seats and reclaim them when you have additional passengers. Seat belts can be repurposed as rope and used for different applications and refitted when needed as well. Unused knobs on the dashboard can be melted down if metal and recast. The interior carpeting can be stripped and resown into clothing. List goes on and on.
This, any old case will do. If the alternative is no case, then you don't even need one with front usb and audio and literally 1990s things will suffice (as long as it is ATX).
I totally agree with not buying a new one though. I found my current one standing next to a dumpster.
I want all my gear to fit in a small area. Lack of space motivated me.

how do i actually make this shit work?
