Caseless

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
It's going to take a while before my Antec gets here, and in the meanwhile, as i have winter break, i want to do some caseless fun.

Some questions though:

How do i power it on? I'm not going to ruin my current case, and i heard something about two wires you have to connect for a second or so? I can cut off the pins of power led and hdd led, as they're not necessarily needed for a working pc, and i'm not using them anyway.

Second, how do i keep my gts250 standing up? I'm afraid it's going to break off if i just let it stand freely in vertical death stance.

Third, should i just run the mobo on the cardboard bow with the anti-static plastic? Or just 2 dvd cases and the plastic are fine? I don't like how the green/blue box comes peeping out under the mobo then.

I hope for some fast replies, thanks in advance, and if any common problem pops up in your head, feel free to post, that's a problem less that i have to put my pc back together for in the case to look for the solution on the interwebs.

My motherboard sits on a cardboard box, laying flat..my card supports itself that way.

All you need is a paperclip to bridge the PWR_ON pins for a moment.

Don't put it on the anti-static bag, it conducts electricity around the outside and can short your board. Just put it on the box

Just take any piece of metal and bridge the two power pins...I used scissors to turn my computer on for a few months.

You just need to short the pins on the motherboard for the power switch. Don't short the green pin on the PSU, that's for supplying power to all the dumb parts such as fans, but will not turn the motherboard on.

its been proven recently that some bags are mildly conductive. Why risk it when cardboard works just finee.

Ok, i'll just run it on some dvd boxes instead of the box so i can't see the fugly box, and use no bag. right?
