About 2 weeks ago I had finished my computer shelf I made out of 1/2’’ MDF and attached it to my desk (picture 3), unfortunately after an hour of using it, the computer got so hot I was concerned that it would damage the computer if left in there. I pulled the computer out and left it attached to my desk until I could figure out what I wanted to do.
Well that day was today, I unmounted it from my desk, took it out to my garage and drilled 4 holes about 1 and 1/2’’ in and then used a jig saw to cut out the center (picture 2).
The box is still sturdy enough to hold onto the computer, and allows air to flow much easier from the side vents, it’s not as pretty since it has the exposed MDF but I figured if it bothered me enough I can make a new one some day with everything I learned making this one.
It’s been set up for a few hours and there is no heat build up like there was before so I feel a lot better about it this time.
