But I think the OP is just trying to poke a hole through a wall from one room to another. No snaking required, just going through the thickness of the wall.

If you're just poking a hole through a wall & it's drywall you could just use a screwdriver. Just push & twist. If there's a pipe or conduit in the wall I'm sure the screwdriver won't damage it. If there's unshielded wire that may be a different story.

Crappy apartment with white walls that already had mismatched paint. I think the landlord was just glad I wasn't running a meth lab in there.

Most leases only talk about holes in the walls as damages against the deposit, its not likely you'll find anything about paint color. Most landlords that really care that much will paint apartments between tenants anyhow.

Finally i took some help from a person to drill holes in my 2 rooms. he just did 2 holes and attach the wall plates into it. I have hooked up HDMI jack, Network Jack, USB and Coaxial jack to it. when i leave my apartment, i will just leave it like that ( i wil tak eout the wires which are connected to these wall plates inside the wall). by this i dont think so my landlord will identify anything

My other question here is can i keep my HTPC ( COOLER MASTER COSMOS II RC-1200-KKN1 Black Steel ATX Super Tower Computer Case ) in one of my closet ( where we hang all our clothes) and close the closet door ?
i wont be keeping any clothes on my HTPC and leave some gap between HTPC and end of the wall

does anyone thing this is good idea or keep the system outside ?

reason being is if i keep the HTPC in closet, then i need not to worry about the wiring stuff

It will probably be just fine in the closet. If it starts getting really hot in there, then you may need to improve circulation or put it elsewhere.

Your temps are fine. You can go 80c before you really need to worry. Anything under 40c is cool...

Technically you can go 90c (I have) but that's hot. Not ideal. If your in the 30's then your well within normal operating temps.
