Putting my case on its side, bad or good?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to put my case on the bottom shelf of my desk, on its side, with the motherboard on the bottom, so the cooler faces up, and the hard drives and cd-rom drives are sideways.

Is there anything wrong with running it like that?
