Horizonal optiplex 3020 SSF question

Just purchased a refurbished 3020 SSF, haven't received it yet but have a question regarding laying the unit horizontal and having a 27" monitor placed on top. Space is limited so I need to go this route.

Not having seen the case structure, will this monitor be to heavy?

It should be fine. The following link has a number of responses from users that are doing the exact thing you inquired about. Especially the one that states they have around 200+ units running "every which way".

Re: Horizonal optiplex 3020 SSF question

Ya I noticed that thread before posting. They seem more concerned about ventilation where as I am concerned about the weight of the monitor sitting on case. I have two 27" monitors sitting around, want to use one. I guess I could buy a wall bracket for it but sitting on top of the case would be best
