CPU bottleneck? Unlikely, seeing as my FX-6350 is running at 4.5 GHz, and the cores aren't under heavy load.

I assume you mean Prolimatech MK-26. Megahalems is the name of one of their CPU cooler series.

I happen to have the MK-26 on my 7870 Tahiti LE and I could not be happier with it. Worth every penny.

Can't remenber the exact layout. And the card it in a box with the cooler still on, so I'm not going to check.

But I had a few heatsinks left over. When you look at the PCB it should make perfect sense.

Soooo..... LogicBuy has a stellar deal on some decent HP monitors (posted on Ars yesterday). Has me entirely too tempted to grab these instead of a 1440p in the future. My question is: how would one set up an eyefinity setup with our card? I've heard conflicting reports on how this card handles all its outputs (HDMI cuts off if DVI-D is used, or only 1 Mini DP at a time). I've checked the eyefinity club, and can't find anyone running the XT with a 3x1 config. I'll be spending a chunk of change on cables with this purchase, as well. Just making sure that i'm making the right purchases here. :-)

I ran it with 2 VGA monitors and one DVI. They were set up like this: VGA->MINI-DP (active converter from ebay, around 6$ from china, Apple**** ones cost around 40$) the other was VGA->DVI-I and the DVI->HDMI.

I also ran it on 2 MINI-DP active converters and one VGA->DVI-I. I don't know about DVI-D because I only have old analog screens. All it states for eyefinity is that one of the screens must be miniDP.

But I can pretty surely say you can use 2 miniDPs at once. Perhaps the limit is on 2 digital outputs at a time? Idk.

I'm facing the same converter problems lol, I just got an R9 290 in mail today, and it has all digital outputs, darn.
I am to poor to afford new screens, so will have to wait for some converters from china again.

Man, a 2 digi-out limit would stink. AMD's site doesn't get into those specifics, at least as far as I could see. I'm still at work, however, so my time to research gets interrupted pretty often, and I may have overlooked it. I'm hoping I can keep using my DVI-D, along with any mix of HDMI and DisplayPort, and keep all outputs digital. Any other ideas/knowledge?

Though it is pretty helpful to know that analog/VGA and digi can still be used. Thanks, Maticb!

Nah, it was just a silly, guess, probably it isn't so, as I said you'll have to hear from someone with digi only screens. What inputs do your screens have?
