Not likely. I just throw a towel or old sheet over equipment that is not in use.

You mean over the vents and fans, right? Can I just use a piece of paper?

Sure, but 2 boxes is better than 1.

Well I guess I could put it in 10 boxes if I wanted. I decided to just leave it there on my table if it doesn't make a big difference. Would the tightness of the box matter if I were to put it in a box?

The tightness of the box would only matter if you were moving it - transporting it across town for instance. Only then would you be concerned that it would not bang around inside the box.

Well, unless I'm moving, I guess I will not have to box the PC.

Hard drive won't stop rattling
Ever since installing Win 7. Often for 5 to 10 minutes. Thought it was Avast (from task manager processes), uninstalled Avast, still the thing won't stop except very ocassionally when I'm doing specific tasks. Is this normal (mem paging, etc)? I'm ready to go back to XP.
