Hi mysikov, welcome to the forums.

The Quadro NVS 450 supports a maximum of four displays - if you want 8 displays then you will need two of these cards in your computer. If you do decide to install two cards then make sure they that you have sufficient cooling.

I've got two NVS 450 cards running 4 monitors each in my system along with a Gforce card that drives two more monitors for a total of ten monitors and the whole thing works beautifully. However, please take special note of the previous comment warning on heat issues. These NVS 450's generate a bunch of heat and hence you really need to maximize the airflow in your case. I actually cut a blow hole in the top of my case to fit an additional 140mm exhaust fan to make sure all that heat is pushed out of the inside of the case.

Hi Big Moe, what is the platform that you use (Nix, Win) ??

I have the same problem. I have two video card Quadro NVS 450 but my system (Ubuntu 11.10)
dont take the second card.

You can help me ?? You can write here your video card config ??

Thanks.

Hey Darkladen,

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

Not sure if this helps, but the trick to installing these things for me was to install the first graphics card that's going to be your primary card (NVS 450 or other card), reboot after installation, then install the other card(s). Other than that, the cards went in pretty much smoothly.

Here's my system config:
Gigabyte x58 Motherboard w/ Intel i7-950
24GB Corsair Dominator Memory
GTX 460 (Primary Card)
(2)NVS 450 (Secondary Cards)
Corsair AX850 Power Supply

...and a bunch of fans to keep all that cool ;o)

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any more questions. Glad to help (if I can).

Hi Darkladen,

Have you figured a solution? I have the same issue w 2 NVS 450's on Ubuntu 12.04
Can you post you xorg.conf?

You guys are going to have to explain a little more about the specifics of your issues.

Have you tried my suggestion?
What sort of errors are you experiencing? i.e. blue screen, driver issues, not recognizing card?

Hi
I am trying to use the 2x NVS 450 set up to hook up 8 independent displays on my computer. I wonder if you could help with how much power supply I need and how many fans would be adequate. Really appreciate your help and time. Thanks.

Have you already built your system? or are you in the planning stage?

I'm no expert by no means, but I have built a few systems. Regarding the power supply, it really depends on what else you have in your system. How powerful is you CPU, type & amount of ram, type & amount of hard drives, other PCI cards, how many fans, will you be overclocking, etc. I listed my hardware in one of the replies above so you can see my set-up.

Here is a link to great resource for calculating the size of a power supply:
(tends to be a little high, but better safe than sorry)
http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/Power

In regards to cooling, that is a tougher issue. It really depends what case you have. Many cases have limited amounts of grill space to mount fans. If you have not purchased a case, then I recommend not skimping on a case. If you already have a case and money is an issue then I recommend at least putting a fan wherever you have openings for one. Also, if your case does not have a blow hole out the top of the case, then I would go ahead and cut a hole in the top and mount a nice 120mm or 140mm fan blowing air straight out.

I did this in my older Lian Li case because one of the two NVS 450's was right up there in the top corner of the case and all that heat was getting trapped.

Another thought is that you want to make sure to orient the fans so that you are blowing cool air inside on the front of the case and blowing the hot air out the back of the case. If you orient the fans so they blow inward then you will not have proper air flow. I would think a minimum fan set-up would be an intake fan on front of case, an exhaust fan in the back of the case, and an exhaust fan on the top of the case. This is not counting any fans you have inside for the CPU or other chip fans. I would try to use 120mm fans if possible to maximize air flow.

In my set-up, I have two 120mm in the front, one 120mm in the back, and one 140mm on the top, along with a 120mm fan on my CPU heatsink. I've attached a couple pics of my set-up for you to see. As you will see, the one thing I do not like in my set-up is that the middle NVS 450 blocks the GeForce GTX460 fan. I have also routed all cables around the perimeter of the case so that the inside of the case is not crammed with misc. cables and therefore impede on air flow (takes a little extra time but well worth it).

There you go. That's my 2 cents about power supplies and fans. Please list your hardware set-up and case type on future questions and of course a couple of pics goes a long way.

Thanks.

Greetings,

I am trying to configure 2 Nvidia Quadro NVS 450 cards into my Ubuntu 12.04 linux system. For a total of 8 displays. I am installing the cards into a new HP DL380G7.

THe problem I am having is that I can only see one video card installed. I installed the first card got it working with 3 displays currently.

After that I installed the second card, but I cannot get nvidia-settings to see the second card.
I was thinking of editing the xorg.conf file by hand but I do not know what PCI bus the second card site on.

Can you please help me determine what BusID I should manually put into xorg.conf, or if there is a way I can get the nvidia supplied scripts to see the second graphics card?

Hey,

I'm am not at all familiar with Ubuntu so I cannot be of any help in that department.

However, here's a suggestion:

Does your computer have a setting in the BIOS that determines which GPU is the default display device? Mine did. Without setting that properly, only one card worked at a time in my system. I guess this is so the BIOS knows which GPU is the primary output.

Just a thought.
