enclosed computer?

arichard21April 17, 2007

we just finished our kitchen remodel including a built in computer desk. i would like to put the cpu inside of a cabinet. the cab is 15 in wide by 30 in or so deep and i am not sure of the height (standard kitchen cab height).

i was planning on making several 2 in holes in the side of the cabinet for wiring and air curculation.

all help and advice is appriciated.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The newer and larger the cpu, the more air is needed. I don't enclose any computer although I wish I could. If you must have it enclosed on the sides, make sure the back is totally open and that air can be drawn in when the pc is operational. Heat is the number one problem in computers.
