Desk or Floor?
Thought this would be a fun topic.

Where do you keep, or prefer to keep, your case? On top of your desk or on the floor?

My newly purchased Raven sits on top of my desk. It's ideal since the case has bottom fans and filters so less dust accumulation. The case is large but looks impressive.

My secondary desktop is housed in an Antec Nine Hundred which sits on the floor under another desk. This is convenient to access the top-mounted I/O ports for audio and USB.

Mine is on the floor. I have the side panel off and all the glowy blue lighting from my case spills under the desk. it looks real purrrty. I like my desk space for other things, like monitors, speakers, peripherals... and of course my 8 lbs dog to sleep on while I am fragging away. :D

Behemoth is far too large for my desk, which can barely fit all the monitors on it. lol. Stygian might go somewhere else, dont know yet (its not built).

I keep mine on the floor just because i dont have the desk space as well as the fact that hot air rises and even though it may not make a difference, i feel having it on the floor cools the computer a few degrees

My HTPC sits on desk/table and my MountainMods is on the floor.

My MM Horizon is sitting on my desk right next to my face. Need longer cables so I can move it a bit...

Definitely on the floor. With the Antec 900 purring away its much too loud (plus monitors take up most of the desk)....

A computer on a desk is wasted desk space :bleh:

Mine is on the floor. After all, I'm not some kind of communist. :bleh:
