I've heard a lot of people say that it isn't good to have your CPU tower on the floor; but I've also seen several on the floor.

So UG, is the saying that you shouldn't put a CPU tower on the floor- fact, or fiction?

I think those things are noisy, floor is better. mine is behind my screen.

It's just that if you have shaggy rug and a pet like a cat or a dog and there's hair all over the floor, it's bad for the fan and the components because they end up with a coat on them and the overheat. Also it is bad for air circulation.

Otherwise, don't worry.

To prevent this, you can blow the dust out with

Read a little about what precautions to take when you do this.

when you have your PC case on the floor it may cause that more of dust gets in. Thats because more of dust is circling (sp?) lower to the ground. Dust on the CPU may cause overheating

(sorry for my english)

take it first hand from me its a terrible idea, only 2 weeks ago my computer died because my tower was on the floor and my drunken cousin tried to spear me and landed on it, snapping a pin out the back of the hard drive.

The best way is to simply have a high chair, perhaps a barstool. And then what you do is tie a rope around your computers tower and then tie the other end to your penis. If done right your computer will dangle about 3 inches above the floor and will reach optimal performance

I keep mine on the floor, but i keep the side of my case open, or else it gets way too hot. Also, i regularly vacuum all the dust out of my pc (its not so hard since its open anyways) so that never becomes an issue.

Having the side panel of ****s up the air vortex and is even worse.
#17
wow...can people ever be serious?

like the few people that have been of help have said, it wont hurt it. i can get a little dustier so youll want to clean it more regularly. but otherwise it wont matter. and if you leave the side panel off, atleast stick a boxfan there to pull the heat/dust away from it...

my cpu is placed secured inside my motherboard at the cpu slot. However my pc is placed on the floor, no problems for me.
