    LOL, ive had the thing up there for over a year now no issues, before that i had the fractal mid tower case no issues,

    Its stable platform and it has a thick solid steel support beam under the actual table. no chance its going anywhere.


    Only issue i have is lugging the case up there, its a heavy bastards.
    Good shoulder work out everytime.

    rather lose a keyboard than have a computer case fall on my head.

    Haha...then the case could act as an incentive to not rage for fear of it falling. Gaming anger management. :lol:

    I keep mine on the floor, usually clean dust out once a month, and very rarely is there a build up worth worrying about.

    so as a vacuum, a pc has a very low dust per frag count?

    Mines on the floor, but its a Fractal R3. I'd like a nice (windowed) case on my desk but even with a 2.4m wide desk I'm still a nazi about desk space :p

    My Armour+ is on the ground to my left. Won't fit under the desk (silly supports) and the USB ports are on top so it's easy to reach them this way.

    NAS & G5 to the left of my desk, desktop pc (TJ08 case) sitting on top of the NAS (Antec Titan case). Everything else (WHS box, Ultrasparc 5, Dec Alpha & dual ppro 200, etc) is still being worked out as I'm relocating everything as the "spare room" is henceforth known as "the baby's room".

    I have them under the desk, but I build a "shelf" so that they don't sit on the floor and suck dust. The shelf connects to the side and rear panels of the desk, and a bit of coathanger wire runs up to support the front corner.

    Subwoofer sits on the floor under the shelf.

    Well at the moment i am running a "test bench" setup, which is a MOBO tray from some old case, which has my RIVE on it, and a hotswap drive tower taken from my broken Lian Li ITX case to store drives.

    My LAN system is also on the ITX mobo tray from the crushed ITX case that is meant to house it.
