3/4 inch plywood is thick and strong. Are you making a poor mans server rack or something?

You need airflow. Check the manufacturer of the cases you will use for recommended space.

You can get away with very little space between units or plywood if you have the right equipment (rack - style boxes that draw air from front and push out rear). PITN is right though airflow to keep things cool will be critical.

I assume that pic is a front view of the rack? Are the PCs actual desktops, towers on their side... rack units?
