  1. It's usually good practice to assemble and test the motherboard, memory, graphics card, SSD's, HDD's, power supply unit, etc. outside of the case to prove that all components work before permanently installing them into the case.
  2. yeah, but I am talking about keeping my case as cardboard for a few days.

    There's nothing wrong with that either. A few days isn't going to hurt anything.

    There are open air computer cases like the Antec Skeleton.
