Computer clock-frequency is around 400 MHz. The resulting RF-frequencies depent on the steepness of the ramp of the signals. At a processor-speed of 400 MHz the RF distortion will reach at least upto 3 GHz. Gaps should be smaller than few cm.

The plates that construct the cage must have good inter-connection on the egdes, closing the box. (otherwise the plates could become antennas!)

For professional EMC protection (not protecting the environment for computer RF, but protecting the computer against high-voltage discharges or lightning) the complete machine should be encapsulated inside a metal cage (preferably copper) with only one hole on one side. All cables should enter through that hole and must be filtered at the entrance. All common-mode wires (ground/shield) should be perfectly connected to the cage at that entrance-point.

Good day to avoid cops. Crawl to work.

Working...
