So I currently have my Fractal Era ITX chassis built up:

ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact X570 mDTX mobo
AMD Ryzen R9 3900X CPU
Corsair H60 120mm AIO CPU cooler (with Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fan)
32GB G.Skill Trident Z Neo RAM (2@16GB DDR4 DIMMs / 3600 MT/s / 16.16.16.36 / Samsung b-die)
Two 1TB Sabrent Rocket 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSDs
MSI GTX 1070 Sea Hawk X GPU (hybrid cooling / blower fan & 120mm AIO w/ Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fan)
Corsair SF750 SFX PSU (750W / Platinum-rated)
Custom CableMod SFF cables (beta testing these)

This is the Cobalt (blue) model, which instantly reminded me of the Glory Days of the Silicon Graphics workstations...!

Slightly odd shape, jewel-tone blue color; perfect for a modern day spin on a 1990's Silicon Graphics workstation...!

So I searched about & found a dude in Scotland who sells a whole lot of old Silicon Graphics stuff...

The question is, which position to go with...?!?

bottom centered looks best out of your three options but top left is accurate as shown above.

I prefer the offset one, but as many have mentioned, top left is the accurate way (how it would look best) ;)

Top left is accurate for the few examples shown, but there are many Silicon Graphics & SGI boxes out there with badge placement that is not top left...
I have decided on lower left, with the Cube aligned below the front I/O...
