Nice battlestation you have there
Thanks! Ready access to bad/spare parts helps. A lot of my monitors have rebuilt power supplies and were "trash" but work fine after a bit of soldering.

HQ of DOom looks pretty sweet these days. How much heat do those monitors emit?
Not a ton. Three of the monitors in that picture have external power supplies, so they're light, thin, and cool. The real heatsource is the 2.2kva UPS under the desk. It's also far louder than the PC (Corsair AIO watercooler and very quiet ASUS GTX 1080). But it can't compete with my older air-cooled Nehalem i7 with MSI GTX 970 on the other desk in the office--I keep that noisy beast thing turned off unless I need it.
The top monitor uses the Surface as its second input, so I can watch Youtube/racing while playing a game. The bottom three work pretty well for Nvidia Surround depending on the game (GTA5 handles FoV scaling very badly and stuff is really distorted at the edges, but Far Cry 5 works nicely:).
