I made a case for Orange PI PC from old CDs.

Materials: 8x nuts, 4x bolts (diameter: 3mm, length: 4cm), 2x CD
Tools: cutter (to cut and drill), metal ruler, markers, credit card (as a template)

My questions:
- Will it kill my orange pi, by static electricity or by bad air ventilation may be?
- If so, which other material can I use: cd case, cardboard, acrylic, other?
Thank you.

[UPDATE]
- Well, I think the CD case is just fine, my PC is still good.
- I use a unused part of phone SIM cards (or any card credit card size) for my Orange Pi One.
- I had wanted to get small pipe to be use as spacer, but can't find it sold anywhere. But then I found that I can just use small drinking straw.

How did you cut the holes for the bolts and screws?

Wow, it's a cool idea. And you can place a fan using the cd hole. I'll might do that, but using old DVD boxes I have.

it looks cool. i was thinking about the same thing. instead of cd-s I would use aluminium plates because of over heating.

it looks quite cool, you can test conductivity by grabbing a multimeter, set it to resistance and test the CD's.
