Open air designs don't necessarily cool well. Cases are designed to promote airflow and pull cool air over warm components and get the warm air out of the box. Having components in the wide open doesn't provide them with the airflow over the components and thus they can actually run warmer when they are wide open. I guess you could put a 20" box fan in front of the whole table and blow cool air over the entire thing.

You can stick it anywhere ( ) provided it's grounded and adequately cooled.
