Stren,

Want to ask you. You are running two systems in this case. Are you running 2 sets of monitors or are you going to connect the same monitors to both systems. If so, how many monitors are you planning on using and how do you plan to connect them? Thanks

BTW, I'm currently in the camp of a TX10-V, but might consider a D only because I may setup one side for trading (6 monitors - NO SLI) and the other side for gaming (3 monitors - SLI all the way). So my dilemma is how to easily switch over the 3 monitors from trading to gaming.

You can thank derick for pointing me back here after looking at mine.

RIght now I use the same monitor(s) for both and just switch the inputs via the OSD. I don't have room for two big display setups and I think my wife would kill me. I currently have a U3011 with an occasional side 20" in portrait. But I'm thinking of moving to three lightboost monitors in portrait. I prefer to use monitors with dual inputs and just use the buttons to switch. You could just use a KVM though to switch them.

I vote Arctic, I like the white, plus the PWM is cool...wait are the Phobyas PWM too? I guess I was just busy looking at them pictures biggrin.gif

Also really interested in having your opinion about the DC-LT pump, got one in the mail tongue.gif

Ah, I never thought about the dual input monitor angle. my monitors have dvi and vga...

Dare I hook to the VGA ports???

Do you lose any quality with the VGA?

Stren,

Could you tell me how wide the gap is in the middle between the 2 mobo walls in milimeters?

Yes, and I imagine you add input lag too (convert to analog then back to digital). You can use something like this to maintain image quality at least though but this one only handles two monitors: http://www.iogear.com/product/GCS1642/

Can't measure it exactly without taking the trays out, but it's at least 70mm, maybe as much as 80mm. But probably 76mm cause that would be three inches and CL works in inches.

I just found this one and although it's a bit expensive, should do the trick well! Since I only plan to run max of 3-4 monitors on the gaming side, this should do the trick

4 monitor KVM

I posted the same question to Jim, I'm asking because perhaps I could drop the PSUs in there, but I'm thinking that's not going to work. but I could still mount them inside the cooling bay down the center and still have very easy access to hiding the wiring.

Now for sure, I'm thinking of the TX10-D as I could take my current trading computer and install it on one side, put the gaming puter on the other and cool them with 2 loops. My mind is a churnin! biggrin.gif

Got some parts in from XSPC for the pump/top/reservoir roundup:

NyBlw4ah.jpg

This is the 4th edition of the 750 pump/res combo

gMMyJ63h.jpg

A0FFoTBh.jpg

NMWZU5ph.jpg

They also sent me the new style single D5 bay/res:

4MwtMaRh.jpg

RXWAcySh.jpg

3PCV77mh.jpg

bjB2hJqh.jpg

Fu8fHN7h.jpg

Also the older style dual D5 pump/res combo:

wp6wju0h.jpg

It's in the wrong box though it seems

6HtQ1UJh.jpg

The front has protective plastic:

0JKaYpeh.jpg

It'll look similar to the other reservoirs once you fit the metal front plates. One input, one output and a fill port:

IegGgeWh.jpg

Also an older style dual ddc bay/res combo:

6QJJ6K9h.jpg

735nMeuh.jpg

U75LQ9Eh.jpg

beIN6vdh.jpg

Unlike the dual D5 which is configured for single loop operation, this can be setup as two seperate loops if you wish:

eHvlexth.jpg

Again the front has a removable film to protect it from scratches during transit:

LzeVst2h.jpg

DDC top:

DihDyL7h.jpg

Qqt02Q0h.jpg

g3C0S4ah.jpg

The front of the top is slightly angled:

K1TYiZnh.jpg

One output, two inputs:

lqPe2Byh.jpg

oSP5oUMh.jpg

D5 Top:

QCPn42lh.jpg

facxZUjh.jpg

2 inputs, 2 outputs:

5GSW6puh.jpg

The clamp that holds the pump in isn't flush with the top:

7e6M0qnh.jpg

9aHdfO1h.jpg

That's it for now, I'll attach the front plates to the acrylic reservoirs once I do the unboxing videos.

Stren,

how many PSU's did you end up using to power your 2x rig? You've convinced me to build a gaming/work tx10-d rig. So now i'm planning for it and realize that I will pretty much split the case in half and have 2 complete WC systems. Is one 1200w PSU sufficient to operate a 3930k plus 2 gtx690s, 18-20 fans plus water loop and regular stuff? Or do I really need 2 PSUs per side?

1200w will be fine, you will use 800w maybe
I should game.
