I didn't really look, I went straight to Stardock because I have seen it mentioned here a few times. So far, it's working pretty good. I sware I notice a bit of mouse lag or sensitivity change when I run the second computer from the first, but only when I am in a game. Oddly, it happens even when I am not running the second computer, but goes away when I sleep it. Must be a network latency thing, dunno.

I have a thrid system I want to add in, but only two monitors viewable from my desk. I have a spare two port KVM I was going to try to use with the second and third systems, to see if Multiplicity would work through it. Unfortunately, two problems: I need a USB keyboard to run the KVM (ordering one soon) and I will need the keyboard on my desk in order to switch from the second and third computers (which defeats the purpose of using Multiplicity to get rid of the extra KB/mouse on my desk). However, having access to the third system (home server) from my desk will be worth it.

Yes...extension cables for monitors and USB ext (still waiting for my 20ft optical cable for my headphones). I put a hole in the wall....with a light switch faceplate over it (make it look a little tidy..better then just a hole in the wall).

You can have 3 systems with Multiplicity. Left, center and right systems. As for mouse lag....never really notice any for me. It could depend on how you have mouse sensitivity on each system?

Great job on wire management! It's hard to get a clean install like yours, and still have it look like it just fell into place like that. (I'm sure it was more work than that... :) )

How many HDDs total have you got running in there?

Thanks all

I am currently running 10 HDDs totalling at 6.92TB advertised (there are 2 in the cage, 1 not shown). I also have 10 SATA ports, so I must continuously switch around the cables to get access to the ODDs if I need them... I need more ports

Im running an Areca ARC-1210 RAID controller for a 4x1TB RAID-5 setup. Its probably the cheapest hardware RAID card on the market which is why I got it, and I'm actually thoroughly impressed with it.
