Top of my desk. Less dust and closer to the open window for cool air.

I have it on my desk, seeing as it's large enough and there's less dust than there is on the floor.

I have it on a small table (the table looks like it was made for it, despite having been made at a time when PC's didn't even exist LOL) next to my desk, to my left.

That keeps out the dust from the floor, and the fact it's to my left puts the vented side panel away from me, hence less noise.

Being on top of a desk is a lot better, in my opinion

1. Better because it keeps dust from the floor out of the case;

2. Easier to open the case and add/change/remove stuff;

3. Easier to connect peripherals, USB sticks and CD/DVD's;

4. Depending on the room and where the case is, if you have it on the floor, there could be a risk of someone accidentally kicking it / something falling on it;

Additionally, having it on a separate small desk like I do, has the benefit of less vibration, which is important to systems with mechanical HDD's.
