    Been thinking about it and I don't want micro.
    I want bigger than that.
    With USB 3.0 on the front damn it.
    And a whole lot of places for dvd burners and dloppy disk drives.

    I been hoping to find an old one at a garage sale or on craigslist or facebook but I haven't found anything worth a damn.

    Something like this maybe,

    I just don't see the structural integrity being there.

    how much load does a computer casing needs to bear ?

    its not like we still have 15kg 19" monitor to stack atop them.

    That is a thin gauge metal and a weak one at that.
    Youd be better off using a plastic ammo crate.
    PM me if you are interested.

    You know fuck all about computers. Cases are optional.

    Use a fish tank filled with Mineral oil.

    Make a case out of lego, i have seen one like that.

    Mineral oil is neat until it freezes when you shut your PC off during the winter.

    So what you're saying is don't shut off your PC.


    Side note: All these great PC case ideas, and I guarantee OP will use some generic garbage, or just cut up his current case more for no apparent reason.

    If it snows where you live, yeah, basically. mineral oil has a warmer freezing point than water, one guy reported both his harddrives failing when his case froze and he booted up not realizing it, SSDs are probably safe though.

    Apparently the freezing point is 50.

    I'd almost be at a higher risk of freezing during the summer when the AC is on.

    diskdrives need air so that the read/write heads can glide on the platter.

    its retarded to dump them in liquid of anykind.

    Also, I used Meguires high gloss detailing wipes to clean all my computer shit a few months ago and it's just now finally getting dirty enough to clean it all again.

    well thats not my point.

    my point being men dont clean their computers until it stops working or have serious performance problem due to overheating.
