Will my computer overheat in an enclosed rack?

Protect Your Computers From Overheating

Computer and server racks that are enclosed on all sides are prone to overheating if they aren't allowed to ventilate. Excessive heat can cut the life of computer equipment very short, not to mention pose a fire hazard for the office. Many computer, electronic workbenches, and server racks are installed with vents. However, for equipment that is on for long periods of time, a fan should be installed for maximum safety. There are computer and server racks available with pre-made attachments for fan installation.
