    One of the worst cases I've ever seen of an occupational health and safety hazard.
    Unshielded electrical hazard, swinging from a tripping/tangling hazard, hidden around a corner and extending over the edge of the desk.
    Oh the humanity!

    Gotta hand it to the guy for originality, though.

    I'm wondering what the temps are like compared to when everything was in the case...
    Would things be cooler now because heat would just bleed away into the room and actually be aided by the airconditioning?
    Or would cooling effiency be reduced, because airflow isn't being directed across components by case and fans?

    One thing that I noticed is that if the PC gets hot it will prevent the room heating from turning on. See where the room thermostat is?
