glad its up and running.... careful though.... don't catch the upgrade bug!

My last upgrade is seed money... with plenty of room left inside for expansion.

I am DONE! The thing runs perfect, great scores on all tests, so quiet I am impressed. The only future upgrades would be one of those mini displayport video cards if I ever need more screens, and more ram if it ever becomes a problem. But for today, I am glad I went this route. My computer means something to me.

I have rarely been so challenged with every aspect of this build.

core i7-4700K
asus z87 mobo
pci-sata ssd
4tb HDD
blue ray dvd writer
3 monitors and stand

what else, well, the rest are configuration choices

Glad to hear its working out Gary!

Question for you, if its not too much trouble to test, perhaps over the weekend or in downtime, is there anyway you could check if the integrated graphics by itself handles 3 high res monitors of charts simultaneously without issues, as Intel claims?

OK, but I think I have to uninstall the video card to make that happen. Right now I know that it runs 2 off the mobo and 2 off my old video card, with Intel stating that if you go with discrete graphics that you lose one of the 3 from the IGP. The mobo is pushing one HDMI to a 42" and one DVI to a 23". We watched a concert last night on the 42 at 1080p and it looked great.

Now that I am familiar with the new build and not comparing it to the old computer, I can hear the cpu fan running. The Silenx fan is great so far, but if I ever wanted less noise the cpu fan would be the first move. But temperature wise, it runs between 34 and 43, even with 4 sierra installs and a video playing.

this question is harder to answer than you would think.

firstly avoid AMD Radeon series because of their self imposed limitations
choose NVidia based graphics cards because they allow multiple monitors through all the connections on the card

also, spend time calling the tech support of the manufacturer (BEFORE Purchase) of the specific card you choose, just to confirm your specific question as to whether or not the card with 6 ports can actively display on 3 monitors or all the way up to 6, without additional software of display-port adapters or any other devices.

Often times what you will realize is they do not know, nor have they tested it, but they advertise the product as capable of doing so. This response came more frequently from AMD based cards than NVidia based cards.

In all cases, do not (ever) expect that the salesmen at any of the vendors and retail / online or other vendors to know these details.

Every so often you will be surprised with the answers you get, and that is the card that you build your system around.

I can't even remember how many $800 cards having 6 ports can only use just 2 ports actively, and conditionally 3 at maximum.

welcome to the realities of the "build" process

Increased energy efficiency

I use an Asus Direct CU Silent graphics adapter (NVidia GeForce GT640 with 2GByte RAM), which can be bought below $ 100. It is the perfect card to connect 3 24'' monitors without any annoyances. Low energy consumption guaranteed.

For the CPU I might switch to a revolutionary active cooler.

-> You cannot use the cooler with desktops but with workstations only (vertical setup required).
-> The cooling efficiency is best during night (unless you can persuade your hamster to turn the wheel during the day).

passive heat sink,



I'm making a run (hour drive in one direction) to the nearest MicroCenter.com, and see if they are fresh out of hamsters,

I think I will need one for my machine too.

That might be too much trouble to physically remove it, but I think all you would have to do is disconnect the screens from the discrete card, and switch one to the mobo. And if the IGP won't display the 3 screens, maybe disable the discrete card in Device Manager to be sure it's not affecting anything during the test. Just being physically installed in the system but disabled shouldn't affect it I think. Either way if you can try, would appreciate it as I wouldn't need a discrete card at all if it works. If not, understand it's a hassle.
