Default Open 5.25" Bay

The case I got from a friend came with only 1 DVD-ROM while both of the bays had no cover. I'm currently waiting for the rest of my parts before I start it up. Just curious, there shouldn't be any problems if I leave that second bay completely open right? I talked to my friend and she'll bring the cover next week, but I want to use my computer meanwhile. I'm thinking about covering it with duct-tape. I don't see why there should be any problems, but I just want to double check.

I left mine open on an old case...was fine.

Did get quite dusty though....my new case has filters...and they are AMAZING...but the filters themselves get quite gross...I have to wash them like every week

I personally leave the fronts of my computer and even the sides off. It will cool better, but as mention will get dustier. I clean it around every 3 months.
