Hello:

Thinking of building a modded PC case. Won't reveal the details just yet, but I can say that most of the hardware components will be exposed. Without being in a case, do you think the parts will overheat?

Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Magus

What are we talking about exposed. No fan or side of the case off. If you don't have a fan or water cooling, yes without a doubt the components will overheat. Otherwise companies wouldn't add them in the first place.

James,

Thanks for the information. The information you provided confirmed what I thought to be true. When I said exposed...I meant no case at all. It would almost be like hanging the parts mid air or something. I suppose I might could pull it off with water cooling though, eh?

Thanks,

Magus

yeah good luck. You could also look at passive cooling on the lower end graphics cards, it would look pretty close to having nothing at all.
