It would not hurt to let it get up to room temperature before you power it up. Not a bad idea to take the cover off and blow / vacuum out some of the dust, as well.

Start by opening the case and blowing out all of the dust with canned air. Let it come to room temperature, and turn it on with the case off so that you can see if the fans are all working. If not, turn it off and replace the bad fans.

Blow out all the dust that has doubtless accumulated in it and learn how to use the "details" button when posting a question.
Also learn to keep posts about computers in the section on computers instead of moving it into the section dealing with Yahoo answers.

Just a quick question. I have a old desktop computer that has been stored in my attic for 15+ years. Just wondered when I get it down for the first time in a very long time if there is anything I need to do. Like do I need to let it go to room temperature before I power it up. Thanks!
