    Hi, been re-configging my MP a bit over the last week or so and have been running it without the side cover on it... can i do any damage this way?

    You won't kill it but air flow won't be flushed through critical parts that need it. Wouldn't do it for an extended period of time.

    The airflow won't be optimized and unless you live in a clean room, the inside will get very dusty.

    Pretty sure it will get dusty no matter what. Have you seen how many holes are on the case....
