7Does PC get hotter on floor?
But if you’ve got both these items under control and have thought it through, is there really a problem with leaving your PC on the floor? No, not at all. It’s fine.
In some situations, the floor may even be preferable. There’s a good chance you have more space on your floor than your desk, and placing your tower on the ground will free up some space. Some people with heavy PC towers may be worried about them falling from a desk or pets.
Of course, your circumstances may be different. For example, if there is a chance of flooding, your PC is safer if it is off the ground.
All of these aspects are particularly important with a gaming PC or workstation that produces a lot of heat. Ventilation isn’t as important as a low-power desktop that doesn’t produce much heat.

Check how much dust and dirt have built up over the years.
9Is it OK to build a PC while standing on carpet?
10Is it better to plug PC directly into wall?
Step 9: If you have a printer, scanner, webcam, or other peripherals, you should connect them at this point. Many peripherals are plug and play, which means they will be recognized by your computer as soon as they are plugged in.
Other peripherals may come with applications that must be installed before you can begin using them. To install it if necessary, follow the device’s instructions.
Generally, peripherals are optional, and you can add new ones at any time; you don’t have to add all peripherals during the initial setup of your computer.
That’s it; you’ve finished setting up your computer, so it’s time to start using it! Over the next two lessons, we’ll learn more about how to use your computer.

14Why keep PC off floor?
Even if you don’t have carpet, you want to keep your computer as clean as possible, and your floor is covered with dust. If you’re looking for a unique way to keep it running properly, keeping it down means you’ll have to clean it out more often to keep it running.
If you can’t fit your PC on your desk or simply want the space on top, you can buy a small end table to place it on. If it can carry the weight and you are not concerned with aesthetics, a little $20 MDF table will do just fine. It’s cost-effective as long as your PC is flush with the surface, with the legs allowing airflow underneath.
If you want something a little more discreet or you want your desktop PC to stand on a standing desk, consider mounting it under the desk with a “CPU holder.” (This is a misnomer; it does not have a more widely accepted general term.)
