HTPC Location

Recommended Posts

Okay, my htpc is kinda big, it was my old desktop but its great for being my computer for watching tv...etc. The problem I am having is that its so big that its outta place in my room. I was wondering if it would be okay to place under my bed, next to the wall. Would it start a fire or anything?

As long as the fans (CPU and PSU + others if you have) have some free space to circulate the air, it shouldn't be a problem. However, you should monitor the CPU temperatures to make sure it doesn't get too hot. Also cleaning out the dust of the fans once in a while is an essential.
