Desktops: Tower on desk or floor?

Just a fun thread, wondering where you guys place your computers!

I personally put mine on the desk because the floor is carpet which might suck in more dust. (Tower has 5 led fans)

Mine is one the floor, because it really will not fit anywhere else. Full towers are fugging HUGE!

Also, I think it would look dumb on the desk and I don't like how it looks.

Ideally, my case would sit on a little metal cart about 4 inches off the floor on wheels so I can get to the back easily and it stills looks cool.
However, I do not have the room for that, so on the floor under my desk it is.

I found this amusing too: I had to cut away part of my desk for the case to fit there.

My ThermalTake Armor sits on a shelf near a filtered ceiling vent with about a one foot clearance. It doesn't heat the lpwer portion of the room this way.

With ten drives onboard, and the cooling unit, it is a serious task to dismount it.

What does that beast weigh? I know my case, empty, is at about 30 pounds. I have the Antec 1200. Monster of a case.
I love it though, but picking it up to get into it or to the back is just painful.

When it is on the floor, it weighs quite a bit. When it is up on the shelf and I need to take it down, it weighs around 500 pounds.

About a hundred henway.

I like the weigh you measure it.

My case weighs a butt-load when I need to pick it up, but its fine when it is just sitting on the ground.

Sometime ago, my friend defined a butt-load as a unit of measurement, but I forget the value.

Mine is on the floor as it is too big to sit on my rather small desk.

What's a henway? lol. Not a vey accurate way to measure. I would guess it depends on the Hen. Oh on the floor, led lights are cool I guess but very distracting at night.
