    Paul: If you don't have make up brush I don't know what to tell you.
    Me: I am not gay like you.

    I doubt this needs electric to work.

  3. Zinc - January 2, 2021

    The answer is yes

    I've see much dustier computer components within case (than you showed us in your nice video), whenever any of my friend opened one… I run my i5-6600K overclocked to 4.7GHz and not much OC GPU GTX 970 with G-SKILL 32GB of 2400MHz RAM without case for almost 5 years now without any issues, on heavy loads CPU rarely gets over 80C and even over 70C it's in miliseconds, GPU never gets over 72C. I clear dust with paintbrush everynow in a few months and looks still pretty and runs well.. Although I am planning to get bigger+heavier graphics card, so I'll possibly move it to case to help it sit well in the PCIe slot…

    I just take my pc outside and hit it with the compressed air from my compressor.. never had any static issues damaging anything over the past 5 years so for me it works great.. takes 30 secs max.. do it outside though or the dust will fly everywhere.. unless you have a swamp cooler on and your pc is right next to the door.. then open the door with the air full blast and blast the pc and the whole area while yer at it.. everything flies out the door.. including loose paperwork. 🙂 heh. & I love case-less PCs.. had one for years after cutting off this to get to that.. and so on and so on until I basically trimmed the whole case away… but I really like that fan-less cooler.. gonna get me one.

    hows your caseless pc build now 2020?

    Do not know if having t-shirt with Tesla and leaving open case computer on subwoofer has some hidden meaning.

  12. Sham Asaha - January 2, 2021

    😌 install dust filter in ac

    uhhhhhhhhhhh, so this wasn't about removing a case – it was just a bunch of hot shots of paul cleaning dust from everything. I'll do one better

    Arent you the dude who stole the chipmunks?

  16. YourAverageFlightSimmer - January 2, 2021

    I mean who even need a monitor, USE UR IMAGINATION.

  17. ops Dragon - January 2, 2021

    How do you turn it on???

  18. Walking Brick - January 2, 2021

    have you ever heard of CleanX? Its basically something to help with your extreme dust problem that you are experiencing.

  19. I got better performance from moving to open air. Sure you need to clean it after a few weeks but for obvious physics reasons going open air works if you don't want to spend hundreds of more dollars on a snazzy case and extra fans.

    HERE IS THE MILLMILLION-DOLLA.    QUESTION: Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here’s a quick test: Have you ever lied, stolen, or used God’s name in vain? Jesus said, “Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” If you have done these things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart, and the Bible warns that one day God will punish you in a terrible place called Hell. But God is not willing that any should perish. Sinners broke God’s Law and Jesus paid their fine. This means that God can legally dismiss their case: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Then Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death. Today, repent and trust Jesus, and God will give you eternal life as a free gift. Then read the Bible daily and obey it. God will never fail you.

    Dust cleaner,
    You need to stock up ass lot of dust cleaner

  22. Rafid Ishrak - January 2, 2021

    Yes you can build a pc without a case but you have to have a wife first.

  23. kenarbes - January 2, 2021

    Do you even need a motherboard??

  24. AnxietyMan - January 2, 2021

    “If you don’t have make up brushes then I don’t know what to tell you”

    there are people that found that, their CASE were causing sttutering, because of front panel usb 2.0/3.0
    others found that the LED-Lights from case were causing sttutering and so on (internal fans)

    so yup.

    Sometimes is better to built the pc from scratch 0 case involved, boot in Windows/Linux, do a benchmark test, check everything, play 1-2 hours games.

    Then built the pc into the CASE

    Play games

    See if everything performs the same ,if does, then you has no problems.

    Also make you sure to invest money in Power conditioner + ups double conversion that will keep your computer components clean from (dirty emi-rfi- stuff.

    This is disgusting

  27. Stag - January 2, 2021

    This is the video I was looking for. Did he leave the bottom of the motherboard just sitting on the table? See I was thinking about a thin cut piece of metal, like filing cabinet material, I guess 2 foot width and long enough for the motherboard to sit on, so you can screw it to the studs in the wall, right over a desk about a foot above the surface, connect the mother board to that piece of metal, drill holes where ever it needs screws and put the power supply and hard drives, right on the desk, any excess wiring can be stuffed between the desk and the wall
