Mac Mini 2014 missing bottom cover. is this a problem?

I have obtained a mac mini 2014 that is missing the plastic bottom plate cover. Is this a problem? Does this block airflow, and if so, would this be mitigated by adding feet to the base of the mac to give raise the device a little to allow air circulation? are there any other issues that will need to be worked around?

Is this a good question?

I'd recommend adding the feet onto the Mac as it would allow for improved airflow into the device. But other than that I don't think it should be too much of an issue.

It might be just worth the expense to replace it here's the needed part Mac Mini Bottom Cover (used) $11 USD


Thanks Dan. I had searched for these online but had not found one with reasonable postage to Australia. I have bought this one as both the price and postage were reasonable.
