    BlackRose, not the worst wiring job I have ever seen (or done!)

    Haha, well, I took those pics a little bit ago, and then just went and bought myself a new case and the Corsair H50 water cooling system. More pics to come later

    I'm still waiting on one screen which was out of stock, but I've used one of my others to fill the gap.
    I'm guessing that once you got them set up, you did the happy dance.
    Nope, tbh I'm not feeling much love for it.

    Looks good mate, I think I know what you mean though, too much/too big, I get the same feeling with 3.
    No it's not enough/too small. I'm having trouble using such small screens and the angles they are at.

    I'll give it a few days and if I cant get used to it I'll put it back how it was and find a place for an extra screen.
    John;

    It looks like there is not much adjustment for each arm? The arms are solid and don't allow the monitors to be moved? The web site says the monitors can adjust up and down at a 10% angle? But doesn't say how much side to side, or in and out adjustment?

    Of course the arms can be bent, to give you a more preferred angle. You would need to find a plumbing shop or welders shop with a pipe bender, I would think ...

    Perhaps you would prefer having three separate dual vertical monitor stands, the cost is about the same. That way you can keep the visual angle you had with your original setup, and with the second monitors mounted similar to the 6 monitor stand? You could even possibly keep your three original monitors as the separate stands will not restrict the size because of limited space between them.

    I finally got around to getting my three 17" monitors connected to one computer and love it. I would hate to have to go back to just one monitor now. When funds are available, I plan to get a $30 PCI video card to add to my original computer for the third monitor. This temp setup is just too hot during Summer. I didn't mind it during the Winter but now ...

    Cheers!

    I have changed the angles in the last 1/2 hour bringing the outer screens at a bigger angle and closer to me, this does seem a lot better and I think with a little more adjustment I may be able to live with this setup.

    Good for you, keep us informed how it sorts.

    To be completely honest, I would just buy the mounting brackets for the monitors and build my own damned stand

    I agree.
    Its always best to DIY as you can make it exactly how you want it.

    By the way, what video card(s) are you using to run all this?

    Well, got the Corsair H50 installed in my new case. Quite a nice drop in temps. Went from idling at 50-54 to now idling at 34-40.

    Also, this new case has a ton of fans. One 120mm for the motherboard, one in the front for the HDDs, a 23cm fan on top, and the 140mm in the back that the H50 is using. It had another 23cm in the side panel, but my video card wouldn't allow me to close the case with the fan on. Sorry for the crappy pics, it's from my phone.
