I've looked at the picture of your Antec 902 rig... aside from the fact that the heatsink is so dwarfed by the many surrounding case fans it doesn't seem to be in a very optimal airflow configuration since the top fan, the areas above the heatsink, etc. will steal all the air from it. Perhaps consider getting a new heatsink or rearranging the air?

So... Welcome to the multiRIG club my friend... When 1x Quad Core just won't do, it's time to think "OUTSIDE THE CASE" and get 4x Rigs... LOL...

I started with 2x WS, "dedicated" for "specific" tasks, and I ended up with these...





Good luck!

Good input, thanks. Do you have any sugestions for the heatsink?? As far as rearranging the air i am unsure. I will be doing some serious cable management this week for it.

I just saw that you're from TN as well... I think I might have chatted with you before... I'm in Chattavegas... Aren't you somewhere a bit north of me in the Knoxville area? Johnson City or something like that? I dunno... I actually met few TNians here on OCN, which is cool... I guess even dumb hicks like us knows how to work with computers to be a valuable asset to the community???

Anyway, yea that's my PC room... You should check out my build log on my sig... I made a pretty detailed log of it, including where I got the desks...

No, I am not in Video Editing or Graphic Designs... I guess it might seems that way, but I own an IT consulting company, specializing in med/dental field. Really niche specific... I use my multi-rig for tech support and management. Not that I "NEEDED" all those workstations, but I quickly realized that even a workstation with 4x monitors just wasn't as efficient as having multi workstations for the way I like to work. PLUS... Makes for a really cool LAN party sessions...

Yours are OEM PSU's, they didn't come with a power cord for that reason.
