Mac Pro (Cylinder) Setup?

Hello everyone!

I have recently acquired a Mac Pro (Cylinder) and I am very happy with it.

However, at the moment it stands on my desk, which for now is okay. But I would like to put it somewhere else..
So I was wondering how some of you guys had your Mac Pro set up?

Is it standing? Or lying ? Something else creative?

Thanks in advance!

Mine is standing on the bottom back of my equipment rack to my right. Tucked out of the way but still accessible from the back and can reach the power button from the front. Keep in mind you might need a monitor and other extender cables.

Be sure to be careful of static electricity on any floor. Just make sure you have enough ventilation around the bottom and top (very important for cylinder to keep cool) and I would recommend lifting the cover every 6 months or so and dusting/using canned air.

I have a small gear closet off of my room also where I keep peripherals like spinning hard drives, router, modem, etc.
