I love you guys who put your 11 fan hovercrafts up on the desk beside your ears. You can't hear me sneak up and knife your gizzards in CoD4.

The HAF932 is way too big and chunky for my desk, i would like it on some sort of desk though. I'm too lazy to clean my floor everyday.

I think having them up on your desk is incredibly stupid. Zero reason for it and every reason not to.

really depends on your set up... for me, I have no room on the floor (even under the desk (2 sub woofers, and 2 UPS), I also have a large desk with ample room on top. For most i would also think air flow is better on top also.

Well, the two main reasons for having mine on my desk are that my cables aren't very long (mainly for monitor) and also I don't have to clean it out as much as it gets far less dusty. I have long hair and I just got a cat, so cleaning that would end up being a weekly thing on the floor. Also, I can't hide away such sweetness that the MM Horizon is.

I have to have mine on the desk, otherwise I lose wireless signal because it would be sitting in a concrete block. however I am fine with it, since I switched from a 19" CRT to a 23" LCD I have tons of spare room on my desk.

Used to be on my desk just so I could stare when I was bored... ..but once I got new speakers, I couldn't fit it on my desk. It's on the floor now and definitely collects more dust. Here's to hoping when the carpet gets replaced by hardwood, I won't have to vacuum it out so often.
