Honestly I'm not sure, never recommended that before..

Its made of Steel so it should be durable (but heavy...)

and the Case will probably get really hot too, check out some lightweight Aluminum ones, even after 4-7 days of being on non-stop my case remains cool to the touch as for Steel ones might burn you

I actually have my PC's running 24/7 so it may be wise to check out a diff case, just aluminum ones?

Looking online, the steel cases don't run hot as anymore and that applies mostly with older cases (Which I'm the most used to... )

So its up to you
