this might seem like a strange question, but...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
where do you guys put your rigs? i'm curious.

I have a nice L-shape glass desk and i keep my rig right on top. Now, i just fixed my dads laptop, so i want to use it as a media server or whatever. I want to clear up my desk space so i have room for that laptop and maybe a cooling station or whatnot. Anyways, do you guys prefer your rig on top, or bottom? (insertthat'swhatshesaid)

Now, i want you to tell me WHY, you choose what you choose.


thanks.

My rig is on the floor next to my desk. Not enough room on top of the desk because my case is so massive. On top would be preferred.

I put my rig under my table. I wouldn't want this heavy 902 crippling my desk nor the sound of the fans Besides, I dont see why you should want the PC on your desk except for Less dust or easier Fan controller access. It's noisier, The LEDs (of some cases, like mine which has additional LEDs by me) would just interrupt your eyes and it would mean less room.

I guess, just like everything else, it has both pros and cons.

i have a cat/dog who shed lol. I used to have my rig on my floor but the constant build up of hair and dust annoyed me and since moving it onto the desk, its greatly been reduced, but at a cost of space =(

Currently on a PC shelf on the side of my desk because that's where I have room for it. Getting a bigger desk soon (about 2 times the size) and I expect to put it on top of that, mainly because it's easier to access when up there. I hate having to work on my PC, 'cause I have to disconnect all wires and pull it out on the floor to open it (there's no room around the PC). Also dust, airflow, and the ability to quickly unplug and move it (LAN parties). This would of course be at the expense of extra noise.

Might end up on the floor though...

I keep a table at the feet of my bed. My case and monitor is on that. This way I can just relax after a football match and watch movies/play NFS lying down.

I guess you need some sort of stool or platform to keep your rig 6 inches above the ground, while still under the table.

Yep! its the "Thor's Hammer". I almost broke my mobo while placing it inside the cabinet after installing the Thor. Gotta buy a big cabinet but those suckers are so costly . Anyway, after I buy the bigger cabinet, things will be a little tricky cause it will probably leave only 3/4 inches for my mouse.
