I am planning on buying a PC and in my desk, I have a place for a computer. But if I put it there PC will be covered from both sides, from top and bottom. Only "open space" will be ahead and behind him.

My plan is to get a case with 3 front fans and one back. Will this be enough to keep the temperature in the normal range or should I put my PC in more open space nevertheless?

    This is not enough information. It depends on what hardware is in the machine and how you plan on using it. If you are using it to go online and write papers, there is nothing to worry about. If you have a massive GPU and plan on running that GPU constantly, you may need to worry about it. How you using the machine and what is in it matters. That said, more open space and exposure to air is never a bad thing. – Andy Aug 14 at 12:41
  • RX 5700, Ryzen 5 3600 will be in PC most likely. And it will be used for development and gaming. I guess the best course of action is to test it, run some stress test and watch for temps. – Jovan0042 Aug 14 at 12:55
