4-way sli, triple monitors, and a out to tv via hdmi

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, per my sig, I have 4x GTX 680 Classified's. On my main card I'm using every port for my main three monitors.
24" 29" 24"
I use the sli option max performance.

I purchased a long HDMI cable, that I want to run to my tv, for certain games.

I plugged my hdmi cable into card 2, but the only way I can get it to display is to disable SLI.

Is there any way to disable monitors 1-3, and enable the TV, with SLI without unplugging my monitors each time? ( moving this case is quite the challenge... )

You should be able to just switch which monitor is the "main" monitor in Windows and then play on your tv without an issue of displaying to surround set up.

Have you tried other ports? I am able to run an accessory monitor, with my dual sli set up and surround does allow an accessory monitor, so it should work with both running at the same time.

ok, card 3 works, it allows me to switch between the tv, and all three monitors and keep SLI.

Thanks

Sweet! Glad you got it working. Sli can be tricky with with additional monitors
