For airflow it's hard to generalize - it might be better or worse than
the case which you removed.  Some cases do a great job of moving air
where it needs to, and others just suck.

In terms of safety it doesn't seem like a very good idea. 

In terms of radio interference it is almost certainly in violation
of dozens of U.S. statutes - unless maybe your whole machine room is
