I use a banchetto 101 so on the desk for me
Mines in my window sill for maximum air cooling.
on display on my desk as its beautiful
Floor! I get that it gathers dust, but nothing that a bi-monthly blow out with compressed air wont fix.
I find it easier to keep the cable management tidy with it being on the floor. Also I don't have the fan noise by the side of my face.
Desk personally. I've battered cases due to having them on the floor...the last one my chair leg hit it a few too many times and left a nasty mark on one side. Got a Corsair Air 540 now, sat side ways with the window facing outwards and the front sat behind my monitor.
I tend to put smaller cases on the desk and bigger ones on the floor.
I like that idea
i prefer a small desk 1m wide by 60cm depth. This way it has a small foot print, I put my desktop on the floor next to the desk.
Mine's on the floor. So long as you vacuum often, it's not a problem.
+1 for the Floor... although what I've done is grabbed a bit of wood cut to just slightly larger than the footprint of the tower, then got some of these big flat-dome-shaped plastic furniture feet and attached them to it. Keeps it just slightly raised from the floor to help with dust (but really dust filters take care of most of that anyway as long as you remember to clean them now and then) and makes it easy to slide out if I need to get at the inside...
Also grab a big set of the largest bulldog clips you can find, and some large metal washers - if you screw one side of the bulldog clip handles into the desk (using the washer to hold it in place) they are an amazingly good way to manage the cables
You are all living in 1999. Nowadays your desk is your PC. However I have seen some people mount their PC's on the wall like the Tt P5. Very nice, very modern, very arty farty.
I would prefer mine on the desk but I have no room on my desk so it is on the floor.
a pc on a desk, what is this heresay?!
Had mine on the desk, but it's now on the floor as I needed the desk space for a new 2nd monitor.
Mines on the floor, wouldn't want to put it on a desk at home due to the size of it.
I haven't spent all that time & money making it look good to hide it away.
I wouldn't put a mine anywhere if i were you, they're seriously dangerous.
On the floor, I need the desk space!
Mine wouldn't fit on my desk, not that i'd even want it there anyway. Buy a case with dust filters on every intake and vacuum them once a month and its fine on the floor. If i had a good looking mATX system and a bigger desk i might consider it. I'd probably still put it on the floor out of the way though.
