Tower Position

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by OldTrader, Feb 12, 2008.

  1. Is there any reason why you could not lay your tower on it's side as opposed to standing it vertically? I understand that the DVD player might be somewhat more difficult to use. But aside from that, would there be any technical issue that would arise from positioning a tower horizontally on it's side?

  2. Any thoughts on this?

    like you said, you might have issues with using optical drives but other than that there shouldn't be a problem...

    no problems whatsoever.

    and if you look closely at your dvd/crdom drive, one side should have a little bit of a "lip" on it designed to keep the cd in place while the door opens and closes which will help you determine which side to lay it on
