I have my pc next to the wall. Will that make it hotter?

A picture if possible would help a lot if you want response.

As long as you don't have any fans on the side it shouldn't make a difference.

It depends. The wall can conduct heat away and / or block airflow.

a few factors would be:


1 Material of the wall [brick, drywall, wood, other]

2 the case you use

3 AIO cooler?/full custom waterloop?/aircooler?

4 position of the hardware.

5 size of the room

6 ambient temperature

7 humidity of your area.


a normal PC case would just work as well, if you're afraid of dust use extra dust filters.

They are really cheap like 2-3$ for a 5 pack on aliexpress

Depends. If its limiting your intake, then it can make PC hotter. Limiting exhaust, not so much. Blocking exhaust or intake, yes.
