My case once sat obtrusively, proud and menacing on the desk. It drew your eye. It commanded attention upon entering the room.

As the shiny fans and dual video card setups grew, so too did the noise. Tolerance about case desktop placement started to waver. The last pair of cards were the the straw that broke the camels back.

They sound like hair dryers under load so the once proud and mighty case was quickly banished to the side of the desk with nary a second thought.

Glory can be fleeting

LOL I welcome the noise of the case fans, it drowns out my wife yelling at me.....

I have two towers on the floor due to size and a third one on the side of the desk.

On a homemade shelf about 3" off the floor to help reduce the sucking in of dust and cat hair.
