Hey guys, I saw this picture on the internet, and then I wanted to do that for myself.

But I'm wondering if there is anything wrong with this, the way it is. Would I need more fans or something?

Also, there are slightly larger milk crates (rectangular as opposed to square).

I think that is a mighty fine idea, and you could strap fans just about anywhere... heck you could strap fans everywhere!

With a little custom fabrication you could install shelves or partitions.

Whats an open air bench?
And where would you strap the fans? You just have to make them point away from the cpu right? Just so that the air goes away from it, and out?

Pretty sure you can use anything that is safe for PC stuff. I used a cardboard box as a case once on a 775 rig when I didn't have money for a case

What are motherboard pins? What do they do?

accomplishes the same thing, looks nicer, and is easier to use.
What is an open test bench? I dont want to do this for testing, I'm going to be using it like that permanently, because cases are expensive and such.

Um seriously? They make electrical connections which allow the motherboard to function...

Open bench setup:

Basically just a computer running outside of a case. You can buy open bench cases like the one shown above or you can just put your motherboard on a table and plug everything in and run it totally bare.
