We are in the process of building a house and the idea is to have a study nook (architect speak for cupboard) where we will keep our computer equipment.
The study nook will have doors on it, so this brings me to my question: Will it be safe to leave a desktop pc running while the cupboard doors are closed?
The dimensions of the cupboard will be 1400mm(w)x750mm(d)x2800(h). The equipment will include a standard desktop pc, lcd monitor, laser and inkjet printer (not used very often) and an external hard drive.
If heat build-up will be an issue, will fitting louvre doors be sufficient or will I need additional ventilation? Perhaps a standard bathroom extractor fan activated when the doors are closed?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
