Default Computer Room / Office heat... hot air ...

If a room is not "cold" enough or at least somewhat cool... what are the effects on the PC.

My PCs are fine, but wondering what are the limits?

Say you put a computer and monitor in a closet (maybe 3 x 3 x 9).
no fresh air and run the PC for 24/7.... in a few days/week... the closet will get hot.

Do you think that is hot enough to damage the PC?
Maybe over a long term?
No nothing... hot means HOT!!! like 100 degrees, etc.

Cool "Absoluteley..."

I did the same thing with a macintosh for two weeks. Buy the time i took it out, one of the Allready old memmory chips, had been ruined. So my computer continuosley locked up. I allso read a review, (I forgot what it was) about motherboards in places with a high amount of humidity, and learned that the VARY thing you described, nearly doubles the aging process compared to one at normal tempature... I experienced it 'First hand', so i must say that it is vary important to avoid that as much as possible...
