Today my family cleaned out our basement and found some old cardboard boxes.  My family was going to throw them away, but I decided to use for something.  I had an old computer with a lame processor and not much ram, so i decided to do something cool with it.

Step 1: Materials

1. Computer
2. Cardboard box with slightly larger dimensions than your computer's mother board.
3. Duct tape
4. Scissors or knife
5. Lots of time
6. That's it...

TALKING FIRE!! NEED ASSISSNTENSEESS!!
<p>HAHAHAHAHA.</p><p>There is more of a fire hazard that the sun will spontaneously cause the siding on your house to explode into flames!</p><p>Cardboard's flash burn point is OVER 220C, while ABS plastic and most other's flash burn point is 335C. All computers newer than 1992 have a heat switch that shuts off the computer at 98C because the processor will melt if it gets to 125C.</p><p>There is absolutely no risk of fire.</p>
Not only is this a bad idea, it has a high possibility of fire and/or damage to your system. You have no fans. Computers get HOT, with no fans hot enough to burn the cardboard. Secondly, cardboard dust is very fine. This means the dust can get into your hard drive, disk drives, basically any moving components. Which can damage or destroy them and presents another fire hazard.

What I did was I put the USB ports right next to where the connectors were on the motherboard. I bunched up the cord and put in the extra area around the video card and stuff.
