How much Space Should Be Left For a PC Fan

    Hi all,

    I have a PC tower that I'd like to shove under the new computer desk I've
    just bought.

    The only problem is that the small grills for the fans inside the tower are
    on the side that will be facing the side of the desk - so they could be
    blocked.

    I could leave a couple of inches, but I'm worried about the pc overheating.

    My question is, how much minimum space can I safely leave without blocking
    the grill and thus overheating the PC?

    TIA
