I don't know about you, but I prefer to have my desktop machine as far away from my ears as the cables will allow. This also means putting it out of reach to set anything like drinks on top of it. I do have an 8-channel mixer and a USB3-SATA drive dock on top of it, but I have to stand up and take a couple steps to reach either of those.

If I could do it without knocking a hole in the wall, I'd put the whole machine in a different room so I don't have to hear it or feel its heat.
