I am building a PC with a friend tomorrow, and he has an interesting idea. He wants to build the PC outside, on a table. It would be a full build, exposed components and all. I wanted to go with our original idea of building it inside his house. Am I being paranoid or is building this thing outdoors a bad idea?
I assume you mean just build it outside, right? Not leave it there? I wouldn't worry about it as long as it isn't raining too hard. Just be sure to give it a good once over with canned air before applying power to make sure it's clean and dry.
