It can be done if you put the motherboard on a non conductive surface like wood or cardboard. That is how you test your mobo, CPU, Ram and Video before mounting the mobo in its case.

TANX! but how to do it? will my cpu automatically turned on when I plug the cord?

I'm not sure if the power supply box is working? because when I connect it to the motherboard nothing happens, and the led light of the mobo. doesn't light on.

Actually you need the power button on the case to turn it on, or at least some type of power button. My mistake. I was thinking of an older system.

You can find cases on sale for $10 to $15 US all the time. Garage sales may even be cheaper.

What happens when something falls/jumps onto/sits on the motherboard? FWIW - I have my system in a case with the sides open all the time. It's close enough to another system that nothing can accidentally fall into it. It works fine that way.

Surfing the web will show you some of the craziest mods available for systems. To include putting them in the open, in your coffee table, in a refrigerator, on the wall, etc - your imagination's the limit!
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I agree this is no way to run the computer, but if you're just testing...

Find out exactly which two pins, on the 'complex header' or front panel conector, the PWR switch connects to and short them out with a small screwdriver. It only takes momentary contact and the PC should power up. Of course if your hand slips... :thumbsup:

If you have an old cd audio cable, the plug should fit. Then all you do is touch the two wires together from outside the case. :thumbsup:
Not pretty, but may avoid a shocking event.

I ran a P-I 200 attached between to pieces of plexiglass to demostrate to some kids the different parts of the computer. That was back in '99. I had it on my computer room wall for 2 years until I moved. No one believed it worked. There were no flashing lights. Just a couple of cables dangling from the wall.
