7970 Three S27A950D at 120hz / Eyefinity Cable Questions - Page 2

post #11 of 46
My friend had to wait and get the CUII 7970 when it came out to run all his Sammies at 120hz. With that card he was able to run all three with display port. 120hz and no screen tearing. Otherwise, not so sure about your proposed fix. Good luck though, let us know if that works! thumb.gif

S27A950D, DVI --> DVI --> 7970
S27A950D, DP --> DP-MiniDP Cable --> 7970
S27A950D, DP --> DP-MiniDP Cable --> 7970

1.) Tried
2.) Tried even clean format
3.) Read my post :P I have all combinations excluding a powered dual link

Same machine as I ran eyefinity on for months, never had an issue :P its the cable/dongle setup, not the system, please re read my post


 

What else to say for someone deemed fail to read OP other than good lucks? tongue.gif laugher.gif

Fail to read op tongue.gif Your suggestions were not going to help, your talking to someone that actually went out and bought an additional four 7970s to test the exact same cable setup your telling me to use and it didnt work, I killed the OC, didnt change anything, I tested one card at a time samething so how did I fail to read OP.

MrWhiteRX7 - Going to test this, ordered two just to see (they take up three Slots

That's what I said good lucks laugher.gif

 

Doubt the issue is the dual link active adapter. It doesn't even work in 2D 120Hz Eyefinity tongue.gif

Thats the point tongue.gif It has to be cable because it all worked fine before, only change is montiors and cables

1.) Just reset my overclock again, precise same behavior, eyefinity desktop fine but the second I launch a game BSOD 116 with the ati sys file error
2.) Going to retry previous 1/25 Cats and previous Caps, tried previous driver but not caps
3.) Thats the cable setup right now, I even have 10 Ft direct MiniDP to DP cables, I have normal ones, behavior is the same. This is the same error I saw when I wasnt using an active adapter previously with my U2410s.

Remember Im moving off three U2410s, that eyefinity worked on fine, same system nothing changed (Four 7970s), cables and monitors changed nothing else.

1. Reset CMOS, load BIOS Optimized Defaults.

 

2. Run Memtest to scan for faulty RAM.

 

3. Trouble shooting; install only 1 (one) 7970.

 

4. Start with clean OS (new install).

 

5. Reinstall the games to try because any customization will not be reset to take new configuration.

 

6. Up to you if you want to heed, just trying to help here tongue.gif

$ 1 million hardware won't impress me

1.) Just did this, second time testing
2.) Actually replaced with a second kit
3.) Tried even have four more that I tested, behavior was the same on eight in total
4.) Did
5.) Steam downloads, all fresh, tried 16 seperate games behavior the same each time
6.) Understood, but your ignoring the fact that same system, same hardware jsut different monitors and cables, never had an issue before, seems more like you want to blame my OC and Hardware, why did the old monitors and cables work, but these wont, I can plug those back in and I play crysis warhead for three hours no problem, under new montiors and cables wouldnt even launch, isntant bsod.

http://steamcommunity.com/id/techanalyst <-- Thats me tongue.gif I literally buy everything new as it comes out, so my question comes down to WHY a cable and monitor change breaks, your ignoring that, if I plug old monitors in with old cable setup it works fine, so not sure how memory, cpu and everything else comes into play unless somehow the CPU and Memory affect cables and monitors, last I checked they didnt.

Does it matter who you are? The fact is, unable to make 3 Eyefinity @120Hz to work laugher.gif

 

3960X + 4x 7970s + 1x 1200W PSU on Alienware motherboard lmaosmiley.gif

 

 

You are ignoring the fact, from 60Hz to 120Hz double the amount of data. You are an IT engineer and what does that tell you tongue.gif 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

Uninstall all tweaking applications such as Afterburner, Trixx etc if you have it in the system. Select "no" when prompted to keep settings.

  1. Uninstall Catalyst. Select "Express Uninstall".
  2. Delete these folders;
  3. C:\user\Program files or (x86)\ ATI or AMD.
  4. C:\user\ProgramData\ATI or AMD (need to show hidden files).
  5. Turn off UAC. Control Panel > User Accounts > change User Account Control Settings > Set to minimum > restart PC.
  6. Clean it with; Atiman Uninstaller v.6.3.1
  7. Install Catalyst http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/RC11Driver.aspx

Ok So you obviously dont read tongue.gif The motherboard is the Asus Rampage IV Extreme, I bought an alienware just to get the case then gutted it then put all my own gear in. There are TWO AX1200s not one tongue.gif So I say to you sir, reading is a valuable skill, also LISTENING to people also comes in handy

Solved the issue, it was the latest CAP, uninstalled and ran Alien vs Predator, over 300FPS with everything on in eyefinity tongue.gif

You wanted to blame hardware instantly, ignoring all other facts, I am an Engineer, I work with Facts, you provided nothing but steps that I could find anywhere online that are 100% unrelated to the issues I mentioned
