It's never produced much heat really, before it used to be 60F playing for long periods of time, now however it is a little lower.
Basically I just want to know will it be ok to game with my side case (where the fan goes) is off? The fan was so loud it was just constant rattling no matter what so I just ripped the thing off. My front fans are working, power supply working (Corsair CX430), CPU and GPU fans working my pc is in a wooden compartment so it's not laying on the floor or something.
Dust is the only problem with this.. There is no problem with the cooling.. Your components may run a little cooler because of the better airflow. But beware of the dust. It can shorten the lifespan of your components and can even damage it.
