Best way to keep computers off the floor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have asked this question in my head for awhile. I have so far a slammed room of books, desks and PCs. I have four servers that at this moment sit on the floor. I have been debating what is the best way to raise them all 6" for better air flow and away from building up dust. I do not want to go a 2x4 route. I am looking for something that matches my black silver and glass theme. What do you think?

you do know that there is a magnet in that woofer. HDDs and magnets do not get along.

yes, I am aware of that thank you for the concern. however it is an 8" computer sub of only 40W no where near enough to bother a hard drive plus the sub, AND hard drives are built with magnetic shielding now. you can actually take a speaker magnet to a hard drive and not lose data.. (I have actually seen it demonstrated)
