My board only did 8, 4, 4 on the pcie lanes and having single bridges between the 3 may have added some issue. I too, purchased at launch when those came out. However for me I'm completely ready to take the plunge again. This time I'll be on X79 hardware so really maximize that bandwidth. Plus comparing the latency and frame times of 7970 multi gpu to the current beta drivers and multi- 290 gpus has already blown me away.

I completely understand your hesitation though. I will be posting a lot of feedback once I get all 3 setup and rocking with the x79.

I was on x79 to. The problem for me is I really sensitive to anything less than 100hz I can easily tell the difference from 100hz to 120hz. Some people will say impossible. But I know right when I see it I think people that aren't going for smooth don't really care to much how smooth it is. As long as the FPS counter says 100 plus frames they think they got a great deal on there cards. But 7970's where terrible at displaying more than 100 FPS in games even older dx9 games I had to use one card. I even played a new game at the time FC3 in dx9 mode on low settings so I could have my smooth 120fps and only used one of the three 7970's. This was only thing smooth enough for me. I just can't imagine spending $1200 again and not being able to use my video cards on a game I like and want to play. I don't want to have two cards sitting in my loop with nothing to do.

I think what you were noticing was the frame latency. There were some games with my multi- 7970's that even at 160fps it didn't feel smooth but going back to a single card did lol. I'm not trying to talk you in to them, but I'm pretty confident it's a different story this go around. I'm gong to give it a shot biggrin.gif

Hi, wondering if anyone can give me some advice.

Looking at buying the X-Star from dream-seller on eBay, but after reading the bit about customs etc I'm worried I'll be charged a lot, and dream-seller is out of the office till tomorrow I assume.

I live in the UK, will I really get charged £100 on top of my purchase just for receiving the monitor? frown.gif I sent them an email, but really impatient and want to purchase it now haha...

Hi guys, trying to use MCW to force presistent profile so applications do not override the profile I'm currently using in windows.

The problem is, MCW won't let me load anything, it's just "default" and I have to go through a wizard to calibrate, which I know very little about, and I certainly haven't got any calibration hardware.
Is there another way to force the profile?

Not sure about UK I know US doesn't really get dinged or the amount is super small like 10bucks I'm in Canada and I just got mine last week i had to pay 28bucks i'm sure someone from UK has bought 1 on these forums........

have you placed the icc profile in c/windows/system32/spool/drivers/color and gone to color management and ticked "use my settings for this device" and added the icc profile in there?

Your GPU will idle close to 10c cooler with only one Monitor. Good idea to put the second on iGPU.
Going to try it myself

Check these out for small desks and gaming needs thumb.gif Getting one myself for these 3

I love these stands. Been using the = Ergotech Triple Horizontal LCD Monitor Arm Desk Stand (100-D16-B03) on my 3x Dell 2412m's.

But now going to 2x 27" X-stars or 1x27" X-star in Landscape and 1x 2412m in Portrait.

Guess I will have to get rid on my 100-D16-B03

Thanks. Hope you get unlockable 290s!
