Re: Comp Temps
As long as the ventillation holes are big enough, and there are enough of them to accomodate the amount of heat that will leave the system, then this is fine.
A problem would arise, if there was far too much hot air to be removed in a certain amount of time. For instance, you may get to a point after a few hours, where the temperature could hit a peak and would not go below that threshold for a very long period of idle time, since the air around would need time to cool, and leave the holes.
You could remedy this slightly by fitting a fan over the holes to drag air out, and if possible, and there were two sets of holes in different places, to have another fan to drag cold, surrounding air in.
Think of the cabinet as a PC case inside a PC case.
