Will it rust? Storing my V354B

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello all
Dumb stupid newb question on the way...
So I currently house my system in a Lian Li V354B. Its a fantastic little case and it was enough to get me out of my A05NB. A little over a year ago, I was came across a $15 classic A10 case (http://www.overclock.net/t/1277164/classic-lian-li-pc-a10/0_100). I am going to move into this beast tonight, micro-atx board and all this eveneing, but I was wondering about storing my V354B. Will it rust? I was thinking about putting it in the shed until im ready to get back into SFF cases, which may or may not be in the near future. The reality, is that the pc case bug ahs bit me and im too poor to buy anything new, so Im gonna move my stuff around smile.gif . Anyone have any tips/suggetions?
Thanks all in advance smile.gif

If it's painted, and kept out of any direct moisture it should be fine. Spiders and such will make it downright nasty though.

Put the case in a full sized trash bag with a couple of large bags of desiccant (e.g. silica gel) and seal the bag up tight. It should be fine. The desiccant is available in bulk at places like Microcenter, or eBay.

Thanks! I made the move last night. I got my fix for a while ... I'll wrap up the case tonight and see what happens.
