Yes, saw this earlier on Instagram while having a drink with @dratsab... I didn't tell him because it was not the time but I am sure he will like this - seeing he just finished putting a PC together using a case he got from another Geekzoner (a beast of a PC, I might say).

My main computer was like this for a number of years. Still worked just fine. And excellent cooling.

 

Current computer is in a case that is permanently upside down. Have also flipped the optical drive so it is still the right way up in this case. Was done for easier access to all of the motherboard connectors. Will eventually change it again so the back panel will then be the front panel. Easier access to all of the cable connections. And move the optical drives to where the PSU normally goes. And the PSU to the old drive bay area.

 

In effect, in a similar fashion to how network switches and routers are designed. Only the power connection at the back, everything else at the front.

why would you even need a case?





Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
