    Best spot to place your PC?

    Is it on the ground beneath your desk, on your desk or somewhere else? What are good spots to minimize the amount of dust it sucks in.
    Also if you know some tips and tricks against dust please tell me.

    Anywhere elevated would be best...

    The worst place would be next to a heater - so just avoid that and you'll be fine

    As for dust - just use a can of compressed air every 3-6 months, no real way to avoid it.

    I have my PC on my desk next to my 2 monitors. i do this because its not only going to show of your beast of a PC but also it keeps it cooled.
    if you had it in a compact space with not much air flow it could overheat.

    Hope this helped

    I remember having my old desktop beneath my desk, freezing my legs off (had lots lots lots of fans) - had to turn off a couple of fans because I was freezing. But on-topic - most places would do I dislike having it on my desk though.

    Nice spot, that should be good.

    I actually like to put my computer next to my monitor if I got one with a side panel. This way, I can see if the cooling/parts are running correctly. Also, when you're working, it's cool to look inside the computer to keep you not fall asleep.
