Hey guys,

Recently got a new motherboard installed but with the same cache I had have now noticed that around the printer and keyboard and printer cable outings there are some gaping holes in which I can stare directly into my PC (think the size of a thick thumb, it would fit in there) is this a problem if I still keep my PC clean from dust and filth?. Or should I not have a problem because of this?.

I'd really appreciate any help you guys can offer

Blades1999,

You shouldn't have any major problems.  It may get a bit more dusty inside.  But should be fine.  Just clean it with some canned air every once in a while.  Just be sure not to unhook or loosen anything while cleaning it.  Or banging anything of course....in other words just be careful when you open it up.

Just as a followup (looking through old PAQs)...sounds like you have an ATX case and that large round hole is probably the old AT keyboard port.  The easiest thing to do to prevent dust buildup, etc would be to put some tape over the hole, preferably on both sides.
