Thx, yeah it took me several iterations to get things how I wanted with my watercooling setup. Good radiators make a world of difference (thermochill or feser x) since they perform well with low speed fans.

I actually did have my video cards in the loop but then I upgraded cards and have been too lazy to order the new blocks.. really wish they would standardize the nvidia form factor..

Right now I just use the nv tweak utils to lower their fan speed so its not too loud, it works out alright since I don't really play games, primarily use the cards for CUDA =)

Oh no, another geek with water-cooling, SLI video cards (not water-cooled, too bad ).
I'm trying to fight the noise too (but the noise won the last battle).
Anyway, nice workstation, nice work.

For those that are looking for workstation ideas, check out this gallery on the Ultramon website. I found plenty of inspiration when figuring out how I wanted my setup.

Multi-Monitor Gallery

UltraMon is great buy Hydravision from ATI works great too. I have 9 desktops in total. So I just changed the wall paper of each desktop differently. I just switch according to whichever the app is on.

LordAlfa, I use an open source package called Virtual Dimension for virtual desktops. Most stable and usable one I have come across. I found many other programs had way too much fluff. If you like the way Linux uses virtual desktops then give it a try. Closest I have found for the windows environment.

Combined with Ultramon, all my window management and virtual desktop needs are met perfectly with tiny overheads.

I put these fans on my NVidia cards, but the nv tweak I don't hear them. If plan to use use CUDA, it might become a bit noisy, these king of fans is a cheap/easy to mount solution.

I want to water cool my 3870X2 cards. Need a full cover block from EK but I am not sure about water cooling because of the maintenance issues.

Radiator fluid turning to muck and so forth.

Initial setup can be a PITA but maintenance is not really an issue, just use a good nonconductive fluid with algae inhibitor etc..

This is the one I use: Feser One - UV GREEN - F1 - Coolant - Danger Den

Some people recommend you change the fluid every 6 months but I have been using water cooling gear for 4-5 years and only changed the fluid twice, haven't noticed any problems.

You can also use water or antifreeze + algae inhibitor for fish tank but IMO the nonconductive fluid is worth it. Last time I moved one of the tubes came loose in transit and I didn't test them long enough before hooking it back up, had a slow leak so not immediately noticable but the next day my motherboard was soaked. After taking everything apart, cleaning with alcohol and letting it dry out everything worked perfectly again thanks to the non-conductive fluid =)

For any more than three monitors you could maybe consider some of them wall mounted. My company just designed a control room for a chemical plant where the operators need access to 8 monitors. The ones that were used frequently were on the desk and the others were wall mounted on the wall and from the ceiling so that they could be referred to as needed.
