I have a Dell Desktop Dimension 8100 -- a typical upright desktop computer. Does the computer's cpu have to stand upright while I'm using it/storing it? I have a computer armoire, and the best way to hold the CPU would be to lay it on its side. will this harm the computer?

I am not to sure if it will harm it, but I defiantly know that it runs down the speed of the hard drive when it is reading, tremendously, (opinion)> that means you have to put a cd in side ways too, so that would be a mission every time. I think that would also mean the cd rom will read slowly. I guess when the computer does slow down you can’t even see it. But then again speed is everything. I wouldn’t recommend it.
