Can I use Dell PowerEdge 750 just 1U without a rack at home? Does it need cooling?
I want to have a low end server for learning.

The 750 will work just fine without a rack. Rack mount servers suck air in from the front and blow it through out the back - not out the top or sides like desktops. As long as these areas are clear, put it wherever!
