Do you place your PC case under your desk? Or do you place it on your desk? Or is it somewhere else?

Under but technically on. My desk has a wood platform the computer mostly sits on (the case is too wide to fit there, so I have another piece of wood supporting the rest of it). Puts the computer about an inch off the ground which is where I like it!

Processor: AMD A10-5800K @4.40 GHz (44.0x100)
Cooling: Corsair H110
Motherboard: ASUS F2A85-M PRO
PhysX: EVGA GTX 570 1280 MB
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 4x8 GB (32 GB total) at 1866 MHz 10-10-10-27
PSU: OCZ Fata1ty 750 W
OS: Windows 7- Professional 64-bit


Needs more tigers.

It's in a test bench on top of the desk. I have a few pets so regardless of the case higher is better.

Mine sits under the inside of my desk on a 4in wood platform because my case has 2-120mm fans in the floor of the case....

Since moving to an ITX rig I place the computer on a shelf next to my desk.

My lappy is on the wire rack next to my desk.

On a small folding stand next to my desk. Seems to accumulate dust much faster if I have it on the floor.
