Case or lack of case idea... Updated with pics

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Building a backup pc, so far I just though about bolting everything to a wooden board and creating a cage around this with chicken wire. Only thing im worried about is ventilation and holding my pci slot cards (video card and ethernet card). Any ideas on how to acomplish this? Maybe just cut a mobo tray out of an old case?

i ran one of my rigs on a desk for about a month once. pci, g-card were ok actually. strap a fan on the chicken wire with zippy ties for ventilation.........or you could just buy a cheapy cooler master for under 50 bucks. my buddy uses them all the time for his ebay builds and they are actually really good.

Are you just going a cheaper route or your idea is to have an opened pc?

Personally I like the recycling idea of another tray since you'll be keeping everything grounded then.
