    I myself have had my PC on my desk for as long as i have had it, but i have seen multiple setups with their PC under their desk.
    having your PC under your desk will lower the sound you will hear and create more room for displays.
    but having your PC on your desk will make it look nicer especially if you have put time into making your PC look really nice.

    i was wondering where the Razer community puts their PC's and if some of you have any arguments why you like it that way.

    Mine is currently on the floor next to my desk but that's only because my desk is way too small. I am going to buy a bigger one soon and then it will go on top.

    My HAF 932 Advanced weighs in at 13kg for just the case, being 5.6m tall. I suspect the parts add another 10kg easily. I never quite thought it was going to be that huge, should've read the specs! Therefore it has to sit under my desk.

  9. Mine's on top, cuz I like to look at it and it's a windowed case, not much point to put it under the desk :D and also there's more dust on the floor.

    Definitelly under - if it was on top I wouldn't have any place for my other things.

    I've mine put on the top.. but that's only because I'm too lazy to go and buy some long cables to put it under my table!
  12. Under but only due to lack of space. There is actually a built in little spot for computers on my desk, but I really do not trust it because it is hanging from the underside of the desk and looks like it is going to break and drop any minute.

    I keep mine on a Craftsman utility cart - my battlestation is a Rseat RS1, so I don't have a desk ;) It also allows me to tinker with my rig - I'm never satisfied with my wiring.

    I have to keep my Mac Mini on my nightstand because of my monitors taking up so much room on my deck. Before I had my 30" Cinema Display I had it on my desk.

    It just depends on what you have on your desk and what you have on your pc. I have two different desktops now (I built the new one a few days ago) and the first one I have on a desk and the second I have under. The main reason the second one is under is that it is just so massive and I am running a three monitor display... but there are merits to both. Having it on your desk a. looks cool, b. allows you to plug and unplug things alot easier, c. allows you to monitor it alot easier. You have a better view of dustbuildup, if fans are spinning when they should, and depending on your front IO or what you have in your drive bays you can view temperatures and fan speeds and all kinds of stuff. I like having it on my desk, but it isn't always practical.

    Have done both. Currently have it on the bottom shelf of my Ikea Jerker standing desk. I don't plug/unplug may things except using the USB ports which are in easy reach because my case is an older Antec 900.

    Mines under my desk because I only have room for my monitor, keyboard, and mouse up top. XD
  20. There is no benefit to having it on your desk other than you can reach the USB ports easier, seeing as I only plug/unplug things every few days it does not matter to me at all. If you have your tower on your desk it just takes up room that you could use for other things such as a lamp, paperwork or even a spot to eat food.
