Default Best Place to put my Computer

Where is the best place to put my Computer in my room. I basically have a big desk, and carpet under it. There is an Air Vent near my Desk, blowing out Air Conditioned Air. Thats basically everything around my computer, theres a window by my Comp, so when its Summer, it can get kinda hot in my room.

I have mine on my desk to the right of my monitor and I keep my blinds closed at all times so the sun isn't ever really an issue for me. I do know what you mean though with the heat rising cuz whenever it gets really hot over here, my temps go up fast so I gotta blast the AC to bring it down.

Default Well...

Keep it directly out of the air blast as condensation can form on warm componets inside. Also keep it out of direct sunlight as the heatsinks and fans have enough to do already.
Carpet is a no no unless you can sit it on a platform of some kind but static can still get to be a problem.
Just set it on the desk...

ic, keeping it on a Plastic Storage Box will be fine for the static.
